This recipe and post is really an ode to the humble linseed (or flaxseed if you’re from across the pond).
And a confessional, about my recent desire bread.
In fact, at the weekend I was craving a crisp sandwich. I kid you not. So I grabbed a gluten free roll and stuff it with butter and some veggie crisp and honestly – best dinner ever.
But in my general day to day, I try not to live off of gluten-free crisp sandwiches. What works well for my body is eating a high-fat diet with zero gluten and only very rare (like crisp sandwich rare) grains.
So what the heck do you do when you need something to mush some avocado onto or need to toast it and run?
Well, that is where this Linseed Bread comes into play. I call these kinds of recipes – bread that’s not real bread. Because let us be clear there is not yeast, flour or gluten in this recipe so it’s not like bread….but also fills the void of bread…. Clear as mud?
I tend to batch make 2-3 loafs of this once a month, slice it and freeze the slices so I can pop a slice in the toaster or grill whenever I need it.
And, as with all my recipes, a slice of this will go a LONG way in terms of your health. Heres why
- Linseed – these are a fabulous source of omega 3 fatty acid, fibre, vitamin B1 and can even support hormonal support in when.
- Ghee – provide all the good fats and nutrients that come from dairy without any of the problematic lactose – winner
- Eggs – means this ain’t just a fat slice but a protein packed one too.
Plus zero bloating after eating and one slice of this will keep you full for ages 😉 I ditched gluten about 6 years ago and have never looked back and I find so many of my one to one clients find it a helpful part of their own healing journey too. And if you need some help to heal, help to get your body back on track then make sure you grab you free meal plan above to help you become one fat burning female….who still eats cake!!

I have also tried this without an egg and works well - slightly drier but still very tasty if you have an egg allergy or are vegan 😉
