An overrated name for a bread but besides that, a very welcome change! When you have had enough fluffy bread, walnut sourdough, chapati’s, baguette and whole grain healthy staff of life, or when you need just that little bit of difference in your daily diet, and you have the luxury of an oven or something alike, try the Life Changing Bread.
I came to hear about this bread while in Paraguay, staying and working at a farm. Another person working there, who soon after became my husband, told me about the Life Changing Bread. I guess it does make its name come true…
The difference of this bread lies in using whole grains, fibers and nuts and no flour. Even better, there is no yeast in this bread either. It sticks together with coconut oil and water. You do need a few more expensive ingredients for this bread, but then you got the perfect loaf to take along your hikes and bicycle ride.
It fills well, is delicious and heavy as a brick.
135 gram sunflower seeds and/or pumpkin seeds
90 gram flax-seed
65 gram nuts (such as hazelnuts and walnuts)
145 gram whole oats
2 spoons chia seeds
4 spoons psyllium fibers
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 spoon maple syrup (I take honey and/or date syrup instead)
3 spoons coconut oil
350 ml water
While mixing all the dry ingredients together, heat the coconut oil, water and maple syrup or honey very slowly on low heat.
Then pour the coconut mixture into the bowl with dry ingredients. Mix well.
Place the dough in any baking mold you have, the inside greased with coconut oil or lined with baking paper.
Have this rest for at least 2 hours, or even overnight.
Heat the oven on 175 degrees, place a rack and leave it in for 20 to 30 minutes (I leave it in for 30 minutes).
Then turn the bread in the baking tin and leave it for another 30 to 40 minutes (I leave it in for 40 minutes).
