‘Super healthy, easy & delicious bread’
Lately I’ve been obsessed with making homemade bread and this recipe has become a favourite of mine, because of its ease, quickness, the fact that it has little flour in it and well, because of the overload of seeds and nuts! This bread is super healthy, protein packed that slowly releases great stable energy from its good fats. It makes a great brunch idea, snack and lovely accompanied with soups and salads.
‘Change it to your liking’– You can alter the flour to your preference or even add a mixture of different kinds, such as spelt/rye/chickpea flour or even add in some old-fashioned oats. I like using graham flour because it produces a lovely darker colour loaf and because of the dense, hearty texture. Sometimes I add in a bit of rye oats into the mix. I’ve added a combination of my favourite seeds and nuts, but of course this can be changed too. I’ve also tried adding chopped juicy dates into the mixture that adds a lovely sweetness. I particularly like that the nuts ( I used cashew, hassle nuts, walnuts) are added whole into the dough for a lovely visual appearance and so it gives a real crunch to the bread. You can also add black pepper or a mixture of herbs if you want to change the vibe of the loaf and maybe even sun-dried tomatoes.
You must try the bread with some avocado spread that is a favourite combination of mine as it is the perfect way to start your morning! Each slice is pure bliss and a true recipe for finding the joy in the ordinary.
Preheat oven to 180 Celsius degrees. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Add in the water, eggs and mix well. Pour into a baking tine (I used a silicon one) and place into the oven for an hour. Sometimes I sprinkle some Maldon salt on top of the loaf if you prefer a saltier version.
Now for the perfect avocado spread
This avocado ‘mush’ tastes lovely with a slice of nutty bread. You will need 2 large avocados, 1 tablespoon of thick greek yogurt, grated radish and a squeeze of lime juice. Mix all the ingredients together into a fluffy paste and add in ground black pepper and a pinch of salt. Sprinkle some parsley on top and finely chopped pistachios. Enjoy a heavenly slice with a cup of tea.
