no flour no knead seed bread
« on: April 13, 2013, 03:40:24 am »
Ingredients:
1 cup / 135g sunflower seeds
cup / 90g flax seeds
cup / 65g hazelnuts or almonds
1 cups / 145g rolled oats
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
4 Tbsp. psyllium seed husks (3 Tbsp. if using psyllium husk powder)
1 tsp. fine grain sea salt (add tsp. if using coarse salt)
1 Tbsp. maple syrup (for sugar-free diets, use a pinch of stevia)
3 Tbsp. melted coconut oil or ghee
1 cups / 350ml water

Weigh all dry ingredients in TMX and turbo a couple of times to slightly chop the nuts & seeds, but you want them to mostly retain shape.
Add wet ingredients and mix. If not coming together add a touch more water. Might even find it easier to mix in a normal bowl with a spoon, or mix all in the loaf mould.
Press in lined loaf tin or silicon loaf mould. Let sit for at least 2 hours or longer. 
Preheat oven to 175*c
Bake 20 mins, remove from tin and bake upside down for another 40 mins.
Let cool then slice.
Delicious toasted.

Mix and match your seeds but psyllium is essential to expand and hold it all together in place of flour.

Vivaroo, nice to see you posting again and with such an interesting recipe too.  I need something like this right now so it will be on my list once I can source all the ingredients.

hello JD & ACW!!  it's been a while, lots of recipes I should try!  Psyllium  was something I didn't have on hand but found at my local fruit & veg. I used honey & olive oil and I reckon any seeds & nuts would do if you stick to similar quantities.   Size is small loaf pan.  Won't fool any child wanting a normal vegemite sandwich but its great on its own merits.

This looks lovely. Great to hear from you Vivaroo. I think I will make this to take away as there is no reason why it shouldn't last a few days.

I have pysillium husks on my cereal in the morning.

Yes Chookie lots of chewing. Give us something to do on the trek to Birdsville maybe the road will be so rough that my teeth will bounce up and down on it by themselves.  ;D

Hi Droverjess - not the first link - you won't need 'Colon Care' when you have this bread!  2nd link Psyllium Husks is exactly what you want.  Indian grocers or health food shops should have it.

Here in Australia it's in Woolies in the health food section, also in Chemist Warehouse.

Made this to day and although I haven't cut it yet,  I can tell it is fab.  I tasted a small bit that fell off the corner.
it is very easy to make. It is a bit fragile and when baking , best to handle with care.  When tipped out of tin, ( I used a silicon one), I put it on the drying rack to bake as it was still a bit soft.   I think for my oven I will bake the first stage for an extra 10 mins.   I also added 10 mins to the second bake. 
I used Almonds,  but next time will try hazelnuts.
Also I would like to try Walnut oil, instead of Coconut oil. 
Instead of the rolled oats, I used a 5 grain mix of rolled grains.

I think this will be very nice with smoked salmon, cream cheese , capers and dill.

Vivaroo,   thanks ever so much for posting this.
