Nut & Seed Bread

Nut & Seed Bread

Happiness is the Smell of Freshly Baked Bread šŸ˜‰

Presenting you my absolute favourite bread that is totally gluten, egg and sugar free. It is made of mainly nuts and seeds, additional oat flakes and rye flour and bind together thanks to psyllium husk powder.Ā 
Most of the time, if you are talking about making a proper bread, it will take you a few days to prepare. Sourdough bread is definitely tasty and in the end not hard to make but it requires some patience and practice to get it right. And you definitely have to have time to follow the process.Ā 
This bread recipe, on the other hand, is easy and foolproof and doesnĀ“t require too much time nor effort.

I am not a huge bread fan, but homemade bread has always been something I crave for time to time. The smell is just heavenly and the warm bread with some melting butter on top is something so special.

I have been experimenting with a sourdough rye bread but after a couple of not so successful tries my patience led me down. It is a bit trickier than the normal white bread but if you master it you are a real bread baker! I am yet to discover the magic of it one day, but at the moment I fell in love with this gorgeous loaf made of nuts and seeds. It only requires some blending, mixing, soaking and baking and ready it is.

Be the Butter on my Bread

What I also love about this bread is that depending on how much you pulse or blend the nuts and seeds you can either make a fine bread or a grainy bread. Both breads on the following photos are made by using the exact same recipe. Choose your favourite and let me know down in the comments which one you preferĀ šŸ˜‰

As I said this recipe includes mainly nuts and seeds but there is an important ingredient in it that helps the bread stay together – psyllium husk powder. Psyllium, perhaps, is not so widely known. It is a dietary fiber that helps with digestion and as it absorbs water I oftentimes use it in vegan recipes. Together with flax seeds they act as an egg replacement here in this recipe. 

Another important part here is to let the bread stay at room temperature for 2 hours. During this time the nuts and seeds will soften and the psyllium will help to bind the dough together. Later, all you need to do is to let the oven bake it.

Equipment

  • food processor
  • big bowl
  • bread mold

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds 150g
  • 2/3 cup hazelnuts 100g
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds 150g
  • 2/3 cup sunflower seeds 100g
  • 1 cup oat flakes 100g
  • 1/2 cup rye flour 50g
  • 3 tbsp psyllium husk powder 25g
  • 6 tbsp flax meal 20g
  • 1 1/4 cup water 250ml
  • 1 tsp himalayan pink salt

Instructions

  • mix flax meal with 1/4 cup water and set aside for 15 min
  • place nuts, seeds and oats into a food processor and pulse until flour like or preferrably crumbly
  • place all ingredients into a bigger bowl and mix well. I prefer with hands
  • pour the batter into the mold and let it sit for 2 h in room temperature
  • preheat oven to 180Ā°C and bake for 1 h
  • let the bread cool down in the mold before slicing

Notes

  • bread is easier to slice when completely cooled down
  • depending on how much you pulse or blend the nuts and seeds you can either make a fine bread or a grainy bread.Ā 
  • I used Blendtec Professional 800 blender to pulse the nuts and seeds
  • psyllium husk powder is needed in this recipe as it helps to keep the bread together, acting as an egg in this vegan recipe.
  • do not skip the 2h resting time as it helps the nuts and seeds to soak up the water and the psyllium to bind everything together.
