A gluten-free, vegan nut seed loaf recipe made with oats, seeds (chia, sunflower, flax) psyllium seed husks, cashew, walnuts, almonds, sweet apricot kernels
3cupsfine cut oats(gluten-free) (300 g)
2cupssunflower seeds(300 g)
3/4cupflax seeds(120 g)
1/2cupground flax seeds(I used golden) (60 g)
1/3cupapricot kernelfound in health food stores (50 g)
1/2cuppsyllium seed husks(40 g)
2tablespoonschia seeds(20 g)
1teaspoonsea salt(5 g)
8tablespoonsorganic virgin coconut oil,melted
3tablespoonspure maple syrup
Finely chop half of the almonds, walnuts, cashews and the apricot kernels.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the nuts and seeds with all other dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut oil, maple syrup and water. Pour the “wet” mixture into the large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until very well combined — the psyllium husk, chia, and flax seeds will rapidly absorb the water and create a dough texture (for less elbow power and quicker results a mixer can also be used to thoroughly mix the dough).
Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil. Alternatively, line the loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving extra around the edges to help lift the seed loaf out of the pan later on.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf pan and smooth it out with a spatula. Let the dough stand for a minimum of 2 hours (Tip: the bread dough can also stand all day or overnight, prior to baking).
Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.
Place the loaf pan in the preheated oven (on the middle rack), bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove the bread loaf pan and either lift the parchment paper from the sides to easily lift the loaf out of the bread pan or you can flip upside down taking the bread loaf out of the pan. Be gentle, this bread is still fragile and hot.
Place the bread loaf (without the loaf pan) directly onto the baking rack in the center of the oven, and bake for an additional 40-50 minutes, until golden brown and firm.
Let cool completely (at room temperature) before slicing. Enjoy!
If you aren’t able to find apricot kernels then they can either be left out or you can increase the amount of almonds used.
