Jolly Allotment Signature Flaxseed Loaf
This bread is a great source of fibre and makes perfect breakfast toast or sandwich slices. I use buckwheat because it gives a good flavour. It is my favourite loaf!! If I don't eat it regularly I feel my health deteriorate. It is so easy to make.
250g flaxseed - I use 150g of whole linseed and 100g of ground flaxseed. It makes a nuttier less dense, more rustic loaf.
80g buckwheat flour
50g of rapeseed oil or real butter if you can eat dairy. Goat butter works well if you struggle with lactose as it has a lower lactose content. I used really good Two Fields Olive Oil last week and it tasted incredible. This olive oil is so good it will also have extra polyphenals in so perfect for your good gut bugs to feed on.
4 organic eggs
1 tea spoon of gf bicarbonate soda
A squeeze of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to activate the bicarb.
100ml filtered room temperature water.
A pinch of salt and pepper.
Depending on what you are eating it with you can also add oregano or fennel seeds.
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.
Put all the ingredients in the food processor and wiz up for a minute or two then leave to stand for 5 minutes before giving the mixture another minute or two wiz up. The mixture will thicken up.
Use a standard loaf tin lined with conpostable grease proof paper .
Cook for 45 - 50 minutes and 170 degrees depending on your oven. Test the centre is cooked by stabbing it with a knife, if it comes out clean it's cooked.
This delicious loaf is full of fibre so it is good for your gut microbes to feed on and so much better for you than processed supermarket gluten free breads!! You can freeze it in slices, toast it, make sandwiches you can even make bread rolls instead of using a bread tin. Perfect for burgers! It is my staple weekly loaf - filling, healthy and delicious!

Thank you for reading the Jolly Journal - I really appreciate your interest and hope it's of value to you. I am dyslexic and for years this stopped me writing because of the fear of getting it wrong. Now I am embracing my fear so I appreciate your understanding if you see a mistake I have missed. Thank you! - Polly x
