Superseed Power Bread

Best Toasted A hearty, crunchy, chewy, high-protein and fibre bread free of gluten! What's not to love? This recipe is lightly adapted from Heather Crosby's Yum Universe cookbook (2014). Some of the changes I made to this recipe are the following: Instead of letting the dough sit overnight, I was impatient (nothing new here!) and only let it sit for an hour. To my delight, it still worked out lovely. Just a tip in case you are short on time or patience like me. I didn't have any poppy seeds on hand so I subbed them with hemp hearts which adds a nice bit of complete protein and healthy fats, however my loaf is lacking those beautiful specks of black seeds. I imagine that you could change up the nuts and seeds as you see fit in this recipe. It's pretty versatile! Lastly, I used coconut sugar instead of Sucanat and I used thinly sliced almonds instead of whole almonds (so it would be easier to slice). I don't recommend skipping the toasting step - I tried this recipe both ways and taking the time to toast the nuts/seeds/oats in the beginning resulted in a more flavourful loaf. Nutritional info (per slice, based on 14 slices per loaf): 157 cals, 10.5 g fat, 130 mg sodium, 10.9 g carbs, 4.6 g fibre, 1.5 g sugar, 6.1 g protein Notes: 1) Heather says you can use 1/4 cup psyllium husks instead of the 3 tablespoons psyllium husk powder. Where to find the psyllium husk powder? I've had success finding it in the vitamin/protein powder aisle of Whole Foods. 2) Do not skip the psyllium husk powder - it binds the loaf together. 3) Feel free to toss in finely chopped dried fruit like dried cranberries.

Ingredients

  • 1

    cup rolled oats (use certified gluten-free if necessary)

  • 1/2

    cup sesame seeds

  • 1/2

    cup pepita seeds

  • 1/2

    cup thinly sliced almonds

  • 1/4

    cup sunflower seeds

  • 1/2

    cup chickpea flour

  • 1/4

    cup hemp hearts

  • 1/4

    cup chia seeds

  • 3

    tablespoons psyllium husk powder

  • 2

    tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted

  • 1

    tablespoon coconut sugar (or granulated sugar of choice)

  • 1

    teaspoon fine grain sea salt

  • 2

    cups water

Directions

•Preheat oven to 325F and grab an extra large baking sheet. Add the oats, sesame seeds, pepita seeds, almonds, and sunflower seeds onto baking sheet. Spread out evenly and toast in the oven for 7-10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. •Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine. The dough will be very watery at first, but thanks to the psyllium husk powder and chia, it will thicken up quickly. After stirring, cover the bowl with a tea towel and let it sit for around an hour on the countertop. The dough will be very thick. •Lightly grease a small loaf pan (9" x 5") and then line it with a piece of parchment paper so you can easily pull the loaf out. Scoop the dough into the loaf pan and press it down firmly and evenly. •Bake the loaf at 325F for 30 minutes. Grab a baking sheet. Now remove the pan from the oven and carefully lift out the loaf. Carefully, flip the loaf upside down onto the baking sheet and bake it for another 45-50 minutes, uncovered, watching closely during the end of the bake time. The loaf will be lightly golden and firm when ready. •Cool loaf completely on a cooling rack. Slice and enjoy! I love toasting this bread and spreading some coconut oil on top. It's just divine. Also try it with avocado and hummus, jam, or vegan butter. Read more: http://ohsheglows.com/#ixzz3JKENRtFm
