Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.

  • Combine lecithin, 3 tablespoons flax seeds, and chia seeds in a bowl; add boiling water. Allow seed mixture to soak until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Blend seed mixture in a blender on high speed until smooth. Add almond milk, honey, and molasses; blend until smooth.

  • Sift spelt flour, rye flour, baking powder, and salt together into a bowl; add sesame seeds and 1/2 cup flax seeds. Pour almond milk mixture into flour mixture and mix until dough is evenly combined and holds together. Divide dough between the prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bread is cooked through and crust is lightly browned, about 1 hour 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute oat flour or brown rice flour for the rye if you like.

Okay this is so healthy and I really wanted to love it...but when the description says 'dense' believe it! I sliced it about 1/8" thick in hopes of making crackers but they were just too hard. On the bright side my dogs go gaga over the 'crackers' for treats so it wasn't a total waste of sublime ingredients:) I am very health conscious when it comes to my pooches as well so I do feel good about giving this to them. However I don't think I would make it again just for them due to the expense of the ingredients. Read More
