Want to have your bread and eat it too? This recipe is perfect for you, guilt-free!
Bread, it is one of my favourite foods to eat. You can prepare it to be sweet, savoury, or dip it in soup, YUM. Unfortunately, many people that come to me experience intense bloating when they consume too much bread, or grains in general. This could be due to many factors, common ones including bacterial imbalances in the intestines, candida overgrowth, allergies, food sensitivities and/or poor colon management. It is my job as a Nutritionist to find healthy alternatives for people to enjoy without feeling deprived, and this bread recipe is definitely one of them! It is entirely grain free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and is only made with a few simple ingredients. The ingredients make it perfect for anyone following an anti-candida meal plan, and it contains flax seeds which also makes it great for women looking to improve hormonal balance due to flax seeds being high fiber and their phytoestrogen content.
Here is what you'll need:
Preheat oven to 350. Grease the inside of a loaf pan or line it with parchment paper.
In a medium-size bowl, mix together flax, baking powder and sea salt. Use a whisk and stir until well combined.
In another bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Add water and coconut oil until well combined.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.
Let the batter sit for 1-2 minutes to thicken.
Pour batter into loaf pan and smooth out the top with a spoon.
Bake for 50 minutes.
Once cooled, slice and store in fridge or freezer.
