Description

My 4-ingredient super-power bread is so delicious, nutritious, and easy! It is also vegan, oil-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, yeast-free, and flourless.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups (135 g) rolled oats (certified GF, as needed)
  • 200 grams (about 1 and 1/2 cups) nuts and/or seeds (see notes for suggestions)
  • 3/4 cup flaxseed meal (regular or golden)
  • 3 tablespoons (15 g) whole psyllium husks (or 5 teaspoons psyllium husk powder)
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (optional or adjustable to preferences)
  • 2 cups (500 mL) water

Instructions

  1. First, line a 9×5-inch (22.5 x 12.5 cm) loaf panwith parchment paper (leaving an overhang on opposite sides, for easy removal post-bake).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, nuts/seeds, flaxseed meal, psyllium husk, and optional salt. Add the water, stirring until completely combined. The dough will be very thick and stiff.
  3. Transfer the dough to the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with your hands (it helps to moisten them with water).
  4. Preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Let the dough stand for 15 minutes while the oven preheats.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 65 minutes until the bread is dry to the touch, browned, and sounds hollow when tapped.
  6. Cool bread in pan for 15 minutes and then use parchment paper to remove bread to a cooling rack. Cool completely before cutting into slices.

Notes

Storage: Store the bread in an airtight container at cool room temperature for 2 days, in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Nut and Seed Suggestions: Any nut or seed will work in this recipe, solo, or in combination. For example, almonds, walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, pecans, peanuts, pepitas, or sunflower seeds.

Weigh the Nuts and Seeds: I strongly urge the use of a scale to measure 200 grams worth of nuts or seeds. 1 and 1/2 cups is a general guideline for how much you need, but for best results, use a kitchen scale to measure 200 grams.

Chia Seed Option: The flaxseed meal can be replace by an equal amount of chia seed meal (ground chia seeds).
