The Life Changing Loaf of Bread

I’ve been hearing a lot about this Life Changing Loaf of Bread. I figured it was time to try it out.

This bread was SO EASY to make. You mix all your ingredients right into the pan, and then you let the bread sit. This was great because you can mix it in the morning or at night and leave it out before popping it into the oven. SO CONVENIENT.

This recipe is adapted from Sarah’s Life-Changing Loaf of Bread:

The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread
Makes 1 loaf

Ingredients:
1 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup  flax seeds
½ cup hazelnuts or almonds
1 ½ cups
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
4 Tbsp. psyllium seed husks (3 Tbsp. if using psyllium husk powder)
1 tsp. fine grain sea salt (add ½ tsp. if using coarse salt)
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
3 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
1 ½ cups

Directions:
1. In a flexible, silicon loaf pan combine all dry ingredients, stirring well. Whisk maple syrup, oil and water together in a measuring cup. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick (if the dough is too thick to stir, add one or two teaspoons of water until the dough is manageable). Smooth out the top with the back of a spoon. Let sit out on the counter for at least 2 hours, or all day or overnight. To ensure the dough is ready, it should retain its shape even when you pull the sides of the loaf pan away from it it.
2. Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C.
3. Place loaf pan in the oven on the middle rack, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down directly on the rack and bake for another 30-40 minutes. Bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool completely before slicing (difficult, but important).
4. Store bread in a tightly sealed container for up to five days. Freezes well too – slice before freezing for quick and easy toast!

Press the dough into the pan with a fork or spoon, then let the bread rest before popping it in the oven!

Psyllium seed is what holds this flour free bread together. It is unbelievably good for you too! The bread came out with an amazing, crunchy, brown crust, and it smelled unbelievable. It was too filling to eat more than one piece which is AWESOME, and I even sliced up half the loaf and froze them for easy toast in the morning! How great is that? All of the ingredients cost me barely $5 from the bulk section, and I have extras!
