Recipe: Life Changing Loaf

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup pepitas

1/2 cup flaxseeds / linseeds

1/2 cup hazelnuts

1 1/2 cups quinoa flakes (you can also use rolled oats)

2 tbsp chia seeds

4 tbsp psyllium husks

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp honey

3 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 1/2 cups water

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Combine all wet ingredients together in a small bowl.
  4. Stir together wet and dry ingredients and mix until everything is soaked and the mixture becomes thick.
  5. Spoon mixture into a flexible silicon loaf pan (FYI these are amazing – if you don’t have one, get one!). Smooth out the top of the loaf with the back of a spoon.
  6. Allow to rest on bench for 2 hours until mixture has thickened and solidified enough that when you move away the sides of the silicon pan the loaf retains its shape.
  7. Place loaf in preheated oven and cook 20 minutes.
  8. Remove loaf from silicon loaf pan and place on a baking tray. Return to oven for a further 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool COMPLETELY (I learnt this the hard way) before slicing.
  10. Serve with avocado, peanut butter, chia jam, or any other delicious toppings that take your fancy!
