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

December 18, 2018

















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)
