Power Bread

There was a recipe for a bread that was heralded as a Life Changing Loaf in last weeks Guardian Food supplement This is quite claim and if this is the case I’m wondering how it will taste so I have followed the recipe, apart from changing the maple syrup to honey,  to see what it is like.

It’s quite a collection of ingredients – sunflower seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds and hazelnuts all held together with oatflakes, coconut oil and pysllium seeds – the psyllium seeds being the main glue. The picture looks quite enticing showing slices of bread with hazelnuts cut through and it could be delicious. Whichever way it is going to be rocket fuel with all those omega threes and fibres.

It’s very simple. Just a matter of mixing the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, squashing it all into a tin and leaving it for at least a couple of hours/all day/or overnight.

I’ve gone for the overnight option and my tinful of omega three goodness is sitting in the shop kitchen until I bake it tomorrow morning.

I’ll take my camera to work and take a picture and update you with the results
