Orange Cherry No Flour Bread
Put on your seat belts for this one! The original recipe was passed along to me from a yahoo post and I decided to change it, for my taste. After a few months of “testing” variations, the favorite recipe has emerged.
This bread is packed with nutrients to keep you energized and satisfied. It contains enough fiber to keep your digestive system working with ease. And guess what? It contains no flour. I know– hard to imagine, yet true. Enjoy on its own or with a dash of nut butter and a drizzle of honey. Great for a snack or accompanying a meal.
1 cup sunflower seeds (raw, unsalted)
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
1 1/2 cup rolled raw oats
1/2 cup dried bing cherries, chopped (or use cranberries)
1/2 cup coconut, unsweetened shredded
2 Tbsp chia seeds
3 Tbsp psyllium husk powder
1 tsp fine grain salt
3 Tbsp Blood Orange Infused Olive Oil (if you don’t want orange flavor use coconut oil)
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 1/2 cups water
Butter or Ghee for greasing pan
In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients, mixing well. Whisk oil, maple syrup and water in another bowl. Add wet mixture to dry one and combine until everything is soaked. Lightly grease 9″ loaf pan. Add mixture to loaf pan, smooth top with spoon. Let sit for at least 2 hours (or overnight) at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake bread for 25 minutes in loaf pan. Remove from oven and remove bread (carefully with spatula) from loaf pan. Place bread upside down on wire rack and cook on the wire rack for another 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing.
Store in airtight container for up to 5 days.
