I absolutely LOVE Tania Hubbard who has two beautiful books Gluten Free Grain Free and Abundance. Both books share this amazing recipe and I have to say if you are a bread lover and looking for a gluten free, grain free, yeast free, dairy free and sugar free version then this is your loaf! It is heavenly and incredibly filling and tasty!
- 1 cup almond meal
- 2Tbsp chia seeds
- 30ml water
- 3/4 cup arrowroot or tapioca
- 1tsp bi-carb (baking soda)
- 2Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 3 eggs
- pinch salt
Preheat oven to 175degrees celsius.
Soak chia seeds in water whilst preparing dry mix in a bowl. Stir to make sure chia seeds are in the water and clump free.
Sift arrowroot and bi-carb into the bowl.
Add almond meal and salt and mix well.
Use whisk to combine the dry ingredients to break up any lumps and distribute ingredients evenly.
Add eggs, soaked chia seeds and apple cider vinegar.
Combine everything until there are no lumps.
Pour into a prepared rectangular shaped tin.
Top the mixture with dried or fresh herbs, crushed garlic, tomato and olives. You can add grated cheese if you would like also.
Bake for 20minutes or until the bread bounces back when lightly pressed in the middle.
Leave in tin for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Once cooled you can cut into 6 slices and store in a plastic bag in the freezer.
It is a quick option for a lunch or snack on the run.
You can fill this with anything you love!
Thanks for clicking on this yummy recipe! Before you make it you need to know I am not a fancy chef! Neither am I an expert cook who aspires to measure everything. Writing recipes is in fact rather difficult for me as I am a creative, touch, taste and smell-as-I-go kinda girl! I realise this does not suit all personality types, forgive me, so if you would like better measurements or descriptions for the kind of recipe I present it might be a good idea to google something similar as I am sure there would be plenty out there based off the same principles as these recipes!! The sharing of these recipes is just an outlet for my creative flair! Good luck – I mean – enjoy! Kim x
