Super Easy Gluten Free Seed Bread

A couple of years ago, a recipe took the internet by storm. It was a seed bread posted by Sara Britton of “My New Roots“. She called it “The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread”.  It was stunning in it’s simplicity, delicious, and beautiful. Her recipe was inspired by a danish friend’s recipe that “changed her life”. Made from seeds, nuts, and oats, it was hearty and flavorful and required no yeast. I have made her recipe at least 20 times. It is perfect as it is.

 

Easy Walnut Raisin Seed Bread! Vegan and Gluten Free

 

When I made the White Bean Broccoli Soup, I wanted to whip up a seed bread to go with it. One that complimented the flavor of the soup. My body is not a fan of bread. Even sprouted, whole grain bread. But I have no problems with seed breads. Sara’s recipe is a super easy recipe to work off of to create different breads.

Broccoli loves walnuts and raisins so I decided to make a Walnut Raisin Seed Bread. Walnuts are a wonderfully healthy nut that we should be eating more of. I also substituted hemp seeds for part of the sunflower seeds to up the nutritional value even more. I even cut out the oil with great success. My method is a little different from Sara’s. I would encourage you to try her method, too.

 

Easy Walnut Raisin Seed Bread! Vegan and Gluten Free

 

This bread is amazing. It is loaded with fiber, high in protein, loaded with nutrients, super easy to make and delicious.

It is naturally gluten free but some oats can be processed in facilities that process wheat. If this is a concern, just use gluten free oats. You can find them here: Gluten Free Oats.

One last note, toast this! It will take you to bread heaven.

 

Walnuts, the Amazing Nut

Walnuts are one of the healthiest nuts you can eat. They contain all kinds of wonderful nutrients and phytonutrients to help keep you healthy. There are studies that show not eating walnuts can double your risk of dying from a heart attack*! It is recommended that you keep your consumption under 1.5 ounces or 3 tablespoons a day.

  • They contain anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.
  • They have a unique form of vitamin e called gamma-tocopherol which provides heart protection.
  • They are great for your heart as they improve arterial function.
  • They have cancer fighting properties.
  • They support bone health.
  • They contain omega 3 fatty acids.

    I have made his bread today and delicious! Thank you.
    Just would like to ask what is the best way to store it? Should I keep it in the fridge? Don’t want it to get moldy. Thanks.

      The hemp seeds can be replaced but the psyllium is trickier. It is a binder. Cheers!

    I am new here. I am 57 and I have had breastfeeding cancer 2x in 1996 and 2006. I am in such bad physical shape at the moment I need to do something to get myself on track for a healthy long life. I discovered a new organic restaurant near my house and had a seed bread with mashed avocado. It was amazing. So I have started looking up some seed bread recipes and came across yours. I cannot wait to make it……I need help and this is a great start. I need to lose around 70lbs, is it possible eating thist type of bread.

      Hi, Yvonne, I am glad you are working at getting in shape! Losing weight isn’t about eating a piece of bread. It is about an entire lifestyle change. Exercise, eating healthy, being mindful of what you eat. Everyone is different and different things work. I recommend eating nutrient dense food. Cheers!
