I love baking whether it's bagels, muffins, loaves or banana bread. I love putting my hair up in a bun on Sunday morning and getting busy in the kitchen. I've been on a bagel kick the last few months so I wanted to change things up and also skipping the bagel-making part speeds up the process. I tell you that because this recipe is adapted from the Gluten-Free Sesame bagel.
This Gluten-free Sassy Seed Bread is fulfilling, fibre-rich and absolutely delicious.
It's the perfect vessel to slather with almond butter and honey or create an epic avocado toast!
What makes this bread so special is the following:
It's packed with delicious seeds which contain healthy fats, protein and fibre. They are superfoods in their own right!
Bread or loaf, whatever you wanna call it, it's delicious and it will keep your belly far more satisfied than your run-of-the-mill whole wheat bread or gluten-free bread that is more often than not made of white rice flour. Which isn't terrible, but it's not nearly as nutrient-dense as this!
I used oat flour, tapioca flour (same thing as starch) and coconut flour. You can find all three of these flours at your local health food store or your favourite online health store.
Be careful not to overmix the batter when making this bread. This can lead to too much air getting into the bread and not getting a good texture.
This is a delicate bread so make sure you let it cool completely before slicing. It's similar to the texture of banana bread. As soon as it's cooled, I place it in the fridge or freezer.
How to enjoy this delicious and nourishing Sassy Seed Bread
This recipe is...
Gluten-free and dairy-free
Kid-friendly and easy to make
Packed with protein, fibre and healthy fats
Very satisfying and super yummy!
Update: This can be made egg-free! I've had multiple people tell me they made it with 3 flax eggs and the bread was denser, but it worked - yay!
*You can make your own oat flour by blitzing oats preferably in a high wattage blender to a fine flour texture. If the flour is not fine, your bread will yield a different texture and it may not work.
**If you don't have tapioca flour, arrowroot flour will work too.
***Replace with 3 flax eggs. 1 egg = 1 tbsp ground flax + 2-3 tbsp water X 3
If you want to modify the flour ingredients, please note I haven't tried using different GF flours. Please post in the comments below if you try something different and it's a success because others always appreciate hearing that if they don't have all the flours in their kitchen that I have used.
Be sure to tag me on Instagram @joyoushealth if you make it because I love seeing your creations!
Have a joyous day!
