Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free, Carb-Free, Vegan, Paleo Bread
A variation of this recipe was given to us by a friend’s friend who really wanted us to go into production so he could buy the bread from us. This is our version, it makes a nice loaf. bread rolls or even pizza base.
They always say there’s nothing new under the sun; linseed bread like this has been around for thousands of years; it is authentically paleo. One of the first examples of linseed as food was simple bread cakes like this, made from ground linseed, found in the rucksack of a northern European paleolithic man.
It only has three ingredients, ground linseed (flax), water and salt, all mixed together and baked in the oven that’s it!
All the goodness of Ground Linseed
It really is bread and nicer tasting than any wheat free bread I have tried from shops. It’s not a bad texture either. Another bonus is it’s really filling and sustaining but not fattening because it’s carb-free and it has all the omega-3 and digestion-friendly fibre that Flax Farm ground linseed is famous for.
If you are following a ketogenic diet for weight-loss or health this bread is perfect for you as it has virtually no available carbohydrate and all the fibre in linseed helps slow down the absorption of other carbohydrates.
If you need salt-free, amazingly this linseed bread when made without salt tastes much better than salt-free bread made from wheat so fee free to leave the salt out. I find the salt content of whatever dip or spread I am using just about enough seasoning when I am being strict on salt.

Remember Ground Linseed is one of the foods of our stone-age ancestors and it is also one of the very best foods for a ketogenic diet. Find both freshly ground gold and bronze linseed in the Flax Farm Shop.
