It has been almost two years now since I stopped eating bread. And in that time I have had a few relapses. The fact that I bake bread sometimes almost daily for the 7mouths I feed does not help. As you know fresh bread smells divine and tastes great with real butter! And I have a good friend who I enjoy swapping new and innovative recipes with to make ‘real’ bread.
If you have been reading along for awhile you will know that I love sourdough and have played the whole artisan bread making game. And I love it.
But this very precious ‘bread’ recipe has opened up a whole new world for me: The Life Changing Loaf of Bread. Sarah Britton, a holistic nutritionist has a real passion for encouraging healthy eating and her blog My New Roots is fabulous. Sarah is not a newbie as she has been blogging since 2007 and you may have seen her on Pinterest.
What I love about this bread is that it uses NO flour and is comprised of mainly seeds, nuts and oats. In the blog Q&A Sarah suggests if you have a nut allergy you can use more seeds instead. I have played with the recipe (see below) and double the quantity, use oat bran in addition to the ingredients suggested and substitute extra virgin olive oil for the coconut oil. I have also found that a standard pan works just as well as a silicone (I have never used one with much success!)
This bread is fabulous toasted and really hits the spot when you are going ‘bread free’. It has changed my life.
