Simple Flax Bread

Simple Flax Bread, Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free, Carb-Free, Vegan, Paleo

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.

Truly Paleo

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.

Ketogenic

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.

Salt-free bread?

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.

Instructions
  1. Grease a one pound loaf tin with butter, olive, coconut oil or other oil. If you haven't got a loaf tin use some other casserole or similar or just use a greased or parchment-lined baking tray.
  2. Mix ground linseed, salt and water together until a nice smooth dough and no longer sticky. Roughly form into loaf shape.
  3. Place dough in greased loaf tin and press into corners or form into a single round loaf and place on a baking tray. Alternatively form into a small tangerine sized rolls or 6-8 "bread-sticks".
  4. Bake at loaf in tin at 170 Centigrade for one hour. If free form loaf check after 45 minutes. Rolls or bread-sticks can be ready after 25 minutes but best judged by eye and touch (it needs to feel firm) until you get used to the recipe. Turn out of oven and leave to cool on rack.
