I am a huge fan of toast, toast with eggs, toast with honey, toast with butter (yum), cheese toasties, you name it! I always strive for a healthier option and I stumbled across the recipe from Roise; The Londoner and found this great grain free nutty bread alternative which is high in protein, and healthy fats and low in carbs.
It tastes fab and perfect with a spread of butter or philadelphia. I just had to share it with you guys and it is so easy to make:)
The texture is a little different to bread but a little more moist and tastes nutty
All you need to make a small loaf tin. For a normal sized loaf tin, I would double the ingredients.
1/2 cup of almond flour (can substitute with 1/4 cup of coconut flour with almond flour)
1 cups of flaxseeds
4tbs of water
1teaspoon of baking powder
a pinch of salt
-Crack open your eggs and beat with the water
-Add your coconut oil and mix
-Mix the dry ingredients together and add to the eggs and mix thoroughly until evenly mixed
-Pop it in the oven at 180 degree Celsius for about 20-30 minutes
-Take it out and cool on a wire rack
It is best kept in a plastic bag, wrapped in the fridge or in a sealed box.
You can even toast and add your favourite topping to it, from cheese to marmite to avocado and cheese:)
I went for butter and philadelphia, my fav:) It is perfect for snacking.
Why is it good for you? Well, it is packed with
-Omega 3s essential fatty acids
-Lignans (great antioxidant)
-Fibres (great to help you poop)
All of the above help fight cancer, helps reduce cardiovascular disease and is great for your hair, skin and nails:)
Is that enough reasons for you? Well get baking and tuck in.
