It doesn’t require yeast, kneading or proving. Don’t expect this to rise like store bought bread though, as it isn’t made the same way.
This bread is high in protein and has a low GI, meaning you’ll feel fuller for longer. It also only requires 3 eggs! This batch is a small loaf, however the recipe can be doubled to make a bigger loaf (just double everything- including cooking time).
1 cup almond meal
2 tablespoons chia seeds (soaked)
3/4 cups arrowroot or tapioca
1 teaspoon bi-carb (baking soda)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Step 1. Preheat oven to 175C
Step 2. Soak chia seeds in about 30mL of water whilst preparing the dry mix in a bowl. Stir to make sure the seeds are in the water.
Step 3. Sift flour and bi-carb soda into bowl
Step 4. Add almond meal and salt and mix well with a whisk
Step 5. Add eggs, soaked chia seeds and apple cider vinegar
Step 6. Combine everything well until there are no lumps (about 1 minute of whisking)
Step 9. Remove bread from the oven and turn out onto a cooking rack.
NOTE: This is a small loaf – it won’t rise and rise like traditional bread so you need to use a small baking mold to “force” the rise – a small stainless steel pudding bowl lined with baking paper works well.
BIG LOAF: you will need to double the mix and bake in a loaf tin or 20 cm or smaller cake tin (lined with non stick baking paper)
