Chia and Almond Bread

Chia Almond Bread

Bread can be one of the biggest blockages for people when trying to make dietary changes for themselves or family.  A slice of bread with your favourite toppings is hard to go without as either comfort food or for convenience. I too am a big fan of bread and known to go overboard which is why I often have to do a Cleanse and drop wheat out of my diet for a bit.  This is my fall back when I just want some bread.  I am posting this recipe with the how to make your own Almond Mylk recipe, as when I make Almond Mylk then I use the almond pulp that has resulted from straining the Almond Mylk as the almond meal for this recipe. No waste!!

 

Ingredients

1 cup almond meal (use your almond pulp from making Almond Mylk if you have some)
2 Tbs chia seeds
30 mL water
3/4 cup arrowroot, tapioca or buckwheat flour sifted
1 tsp bicarb soda
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 eggs
pinch of salt

Directions

preheat oven to 175 deg C

soak Chia seeds in water in separate dish, stir occasionally over 15 min

pour thick mixture into baking paper LINED loaf baking tin
