Even without new year’s resolutions, I started the new year with a lot of healthy and tasty food. Especially the latter is important since food has to taste good to make us happy! I love sweets but apart from that I eat healthy and tasty. High protein superfood bread therefore is an ideal breakfast with a lot of nutrients. Thanks to linseeds and chia seeds, the bread is very sating and ideal for a healthy breakfast.
I love to flip through cookbooks and was very happy to see the new Jamie Oliver Superfood Everyday book of Jamie Oliver come out over the holidays. The book has been on my wish list for a long time and as a breakfast fan, the first thing I had to try was the superfood protein bread. However, the protein rich bread exceeded all my expectations! Thanks to the yeast, the bread rose fine without flour and tasted sweet and salty. It was really good!
Superfood Protein Bread (1 loaf of bread approx. 20 cm)
1 pack of dry yeast
375 ml lukewarm water
4 tbsp. olive oil
250 g chickpea flour
100 g grounded almonds
50 g linseeds (crushed)
100 g mixed seeds (e.g. chia seeds, sesame, sunflower seeds, poppy, pumpkin seeds and so on)
4 large eggs
1 TL salt
Mix dry yeast with lukewarm water and olive oil and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Line a loaf pan of approx. 20cm with baking paper and preheat the oven to 190 degrees (upper/lower heat).
Mix flour, almonds, seeds and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the middle, add the eggs and whisk well. Add the yeast mixture and mix in the flour from the rand of the bowl with a whisk.
Pour the dough into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the surface with a dough scraper. Bake the bread on the middle rack of the oven at 190 degrees for 45 minutes until golden brown. Test with a skewer before taking it out. If there is no dough on the skewer, the bread is ready. Let it cool down for 20 minutes before taking it out of the loaf pan.
The freshly prepared bread is really delicious and lasts approx. 3 days.
Have fun and good luck baking!
