You’ve probably already seen an endless amount of different variations of the Life-Changing Loaf of Bread. Still I couldn’t help but make my own version and after numerous tries I finally got it perfectly right.
Besides, seeds are super good for you and you should definitely include more of them in your daily diet.
I mean, seeds are naturally packed with real goodies and are one of the natural “superfoods” you want (and should) eat more, especially if you’re living an active lifestyle. They are also a great food supplement for those (us) living to a vegan and gluten free diet.
By including seeds in your weekly diet, the natural fibre, iron, protein, good fats, vitamins, and minerals they contain contribute to a wide range of potential health benefits. Seeds are a great source of energy, can help reduce fatigue and will contribute to healthy hair and skin, muscle and bone growth and maintaining a healthy heart. They also have immune system boosting qualities.
So without further ado, here we go
Oat and Seed Bread
(makes one loaf)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pepitas
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
2 cups rolled oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp psyllium seed husks
1 tsp himalayan salt
1 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cups water
In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the water and oil, stir well to combine. Scoop into a loaf pan and push down on the dough evenly. Leave aside for one or two hours for the psyllium, chia, flax seeds and oats do their magic.
Preheat the oven to 180 celsius. Pop the loaf into the oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove the bread from the loaf, flip upside down and bake on the rack for another 30-45 minutes, or until golden and crispy on the outside. Let cool completely before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
