Bird seed loaf

6 December, 2016

I am always on the lookout for gluten-free bread recipes to recommend to people and this is a new favourite.  Aptly renamed by my son, it contains enough nutritious nuts and seeds to fill a bird feeder, but will also supply you with plenty of healthy fats, fibre and antioxidant nutrients.  It is delicious toasted, freezes well and is quite filling, so slice it thinly.  Best of all, it is so quick and simple to prepare.

    Psyllium husks

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well until evenly combined. Set aside at room temperature for 15-20 minutes, to allow the chia seeds, flax seeds and psyllium husk to absorb some of the moisture.

  2. Preheat the oven to 160C and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

  3. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and spread evenly. Bake for 60 minutes.

  4. Remove the bread from the tin and leave to cool before slicing.
