Chestnut and Flax Seed bread – Sugar/Grain/Yeast Free


I have experimented with lots of LCHF bread recipes (including many that have come out purple thanks to psyllium husk). I like the dense nutty flavour, like a dark rye bread, but if you are looking for a light, white loaf, this isn't for you!!

Top Tip! – I don’t eat much bread so once cold, I slice this before placing in the freezer. When I want a slice of bread, I take one out, toast it or leave to defrost if I prefer a sandwich.

Makes 1lb loaf (approx. 8 thick slices)
