Makes one loaf.

This is my daily bread and what a diva of a loaf it is. Use it for blissful open-top sandwiches or a mouthwatering and satisfying toasted sandwich. The perfect skin food.

Ingredients

  • 350 g (12 oz/21/3 cups) gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 30 g (1 oz/1/4 cup) ground flaxseeds
  • 20 g (3/4 oz/1/4 cup) chia seeds
  • 115 g (4 oz/3/4 cup) mixed sunflower seeds and pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1 x 35 gm packet Brook Farm Brothers Blend nuts crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 organic eggs
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 80 ml (21/2 fl oz/1/3 cup) additive-free coconut milk
  • 5 drops stevia liquid
  • 125 ml (4 fl oz/1/2 cup) Meko coconut water
  • Cocolife organic Coconut oil spray for greasing

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (345°F/Gas 3–4) and grease and flour a 20 x 9 cm (8 x 31/2 inch) loaf (bar) tin with Cocolife organic Coconut oil spray.
  2. Combine the flour, flaxseed, chia, sunflower, pumpkin seeds, crushed nuts and salt in a bowl and mix until combined.
  3. In a separate large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs for about 2 minutes – they should be pale and fluffy.
  4. Stir in the apple cider vinegar, butter, coconut milk, stevia and coconut water. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the flour mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the loaf comes out clean.
  6. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
  7. This loaf will keep for one week in the fridge or two months in the freezer.
