I’ve tried a few low carb bread recipes and almost everyone has flopped. They either haven’t risen or they’ve been doughy and uncooked in the middle or they’ve just tasted nasty.
I also really dislike the taste of milled flaxseed.
So with that being said, you might understand why I got really excited when I tried and tasted this recipe.
Not only is it easy, but it tastes so delicious and if I didn’t know any better, I’d think it was a normal seed loaf.
I’ve become so used to not eating bread that I’m not really missing it, but it’s so great to have a Banting option.
1 cup of seeds (I buy the mixed seed pack that has pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds.)
*If you don’t want the crunch of the seeds (seed loaf), you can mill them in a food processor/Nutribullet so that it becomes like flour and this gives the texture of a normal bread loaf.
1 cup of almond flour
60ml of psyllium husk
10ml of baking powder
5ml of salt
1 cup of full cream plain yoghurt
Wax baking paper
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
Mix all the dry ingredients together… the flour, the seeds, the psyllium husk, the baking powder and the salt together.
Add the 6 eggs and mix.
Add the yoghurt and mix.
Line your baking tin with wax paper and pour the mixture in. If you have extra seeds, sprinkle them on top.
Pop it into the oven for 50-55 minutes. Be prepared for your home to fill with the delicious fresh bread baking smell.
Stick a cake tester in to see that it’s done and then slice up and spread fresh farm butter on and enjoy!
PS. It’s really filling. I was so excited that I buttered a few slices and only managed to get through 2.
*We made another loaf, where we milled the cup of seeds using the Nutribullet and it took out the crunchy seeds and made it taste like normal bread.

I’ve also tried various recipes like adding olives for an olive loaf. I’ve added cheese and onion, feta and sun dried tomatoes – you can really play around here!
