Gluten, grain and dairy free, this is a high protein paleo option. This healthy bread recipe can be sliced and toasted, served warm out of the oven with soup or slathered in nut butter for a delicious snack.


2 cups flaxseed meal
1 tablespoon baking powder (yes, it’s quite a lot!)
2 sachets stevia powder (approx. 1 tsp)
1 tsp salt
5 free-range, organic eggs
1/2 cup organic oil
1/2 cup water
Optional flavourings: sprigs of rosemary, basil or coriander, cumin or fresh chillies for savoury loaves, cinnamon, banana, sultanas or raw cacao for a sweet loaf.

how to make it…
Heat oven to 200˚C. Combine all dry ingredients (including any flavourings) and mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs thoroughly and whisk in the oil and water. Add the banana now if using. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. (Add sultanas now if using). Leave to stand for 2-3 minutes until the mixture has stiffened enough to hold its own shape. Tip onto a lined baking tray. Decorate with herbs or chili if required. Pop into hot oven and bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Can also be baked in muffin tins, in which case reduce cooking time to 25 minutes).
