Bird seed loaf

Simple to prepare and packed with healthy fats & fibre 


About this Recipe

By: Amanda

Aptly renamed by my son, this loaf 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 easy to prepare.


15-18 slices 


Step by Step Instructions

  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 3/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 3/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup psyllium husks
  • 1/2 cup whole nuts e.g. almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour e.g. coconut/almond/buckwheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Himalayan salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
Step 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.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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