Okay, so I first heard about The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread on Facebook and then I did some internet research and landed on a website called My New Roots. It looks like My New Roots is the source of The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread recipe. After reading the original post on this bread, I had to try it.
This bread is packed with protein and fibre and it supposed to be very good for improving digestion. All good things – AND it is supposed to taste great, which is even a better thing, so I quickly went to work.
After reviewing the recipe, it turned out I needed a few things to make this bread that are not staples in my kitchen. The recipe called for sunflower seeds, flax seeds, hazelnuts or almonds, rolled oats, chia seeds, psyllium seed husks (or psyllium husk powder), sea salt, maple syrup, coconut oil and water. I do like to try new things – especially foodstuffs, so I had everything except the sunflower seeds and the psyllium seed husks. The recipe also required a flexible silicon loaf pan – which I also did not have. Well, instead of heading out to my local store(s) – I did what I find myself doing more and more these days – I went to Amazon and placed my order there. Less than 48 hours later, I had what I needed to embark upon The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread.
The instructions were simple. You basically mix everything in the silicon loaf pan and let it sit for 2 hours plus – letting the dry ingredients absorb the wet. The baking took another hour and then there were strict instructions to wait until the bread cooled completely before tasting. I was eager to get going, so all the wait time seemed to last forever. Once the loaf was cooled, the suggestion was that the bread needed to be toasted for optimum flavour. Finally, once toasted it was ready for tasting. We tried it plain and topped with white cheddar. Both were good – very good.
What this a good something new? I’ll let you know tomorrow after more toppings are tested.
