Flax and Almond Bread

2017 Update: Due to a problem with Photobucket, see here, there will be a lot of recipes without photos. I will be slowly redoing the recipe pages, as best I can, but many other posts will be impossible to replace. I’m doing this in my own time, while continuing to update the blog with new recipes and posts. If you’d like to donate, any amount appreciated, you can do so here. The site will always be free, the recipes will never be locked behind a paywall, but this is a lot of additional work. I’m not demanding or begging, just putting it there so if you feel like repaying my hard work you have that option. I don’t make any money from the site, all that I do here is to help others, I couldn’t charge for that.

Ingredients

120g Ground Flaxseed/Golden Flaxseed (Cold milled okay too)
67g Ground Almonds
4 Eggs
3 Tsp Baking Powder
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
150ml Water

Optional: Add a handful of Mixed Seeds to Batter.

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 175c (Fan)

2. Grease and line the bottom of the baking tin.

3. Mix together all dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

4. Put Eggs in bowl and whisk together with Olive Oil until frothy.

5. Add Egg Mixture to Dry ingredients and whisk until smooth, then gradually add Water until batter is runny.

6. Pour into baking tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes (Turning if necessary at 20 minutes) or until firm and a knife comes out clean. Cool in tin for half an hour and then remove and cool completely on wire-rack.
