Chia Bread – S

SDC10472

After trying many recipes for THM S breads and finding none that hit the spot (usually with their over-bearing egg flavour) I decided to do some experimenting. Personally, it’s the closest I’ve tasted to “real” bread, but as with everything, it’s not to everybody’s taste.

Chia Bread – S

Makes 8 pieces.

1 cup water
1 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
¼ cup chia seeds
¾ cup almond meal
¾ cup ground golden flaxseed
2 tsp. baking powder
pinch salt
1 Tbsp coconut oil

Sprinkle xanthan gum onto water whisking with a fork as you go. Mix in chia seeds and soak for 15 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and mix well into a sticky dough.

Line a baking tray with baking paper or baking sheet. Flatten with rolling pin between baking sheets or paper to edges of baking tray or spread mixture out with back of a wet spoon and bake at 200 deg C for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.

Variation:
White Chia Bread (tastes and looks more like white bread but still crunchy)
Use white chia seeds and replace the ground flaxseed with almond, must add xanthan gum.
