You can make this loaf every week and keep it in the fridge. Use it like bread. It is gluten free and high in fibre.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup LSA or ground flaxseeds
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup crushed almonds
  • 1/4 cu[p psyllium husk
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp himalayan pink rock salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp virgin organic coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond milk

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C (160 deg fan-forced)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
  3. Whisk all wet ingredients together in measuring cup.
  4. Slowly add wet mixture to dry, stirring until well combined. If the batter is too wet, add extra almond meal. If too dry add more almond milk.
  5. Lightly oil a standard loaf tin (21cm x 11cm) with coconut oil, then coat liberally with extra almond meal to prevent it from sticking. Spoon batter into tin and place in preheated oven.
