One other activity I am doing at the moment is cooking. I have always believed that good nutrition is incredibly important to keep us vibrant and healthy especially as we grow older. Today I thought that I would share a delicious gluten-free bread.
This is one of my favourite recipes. It was created by my niece Emma from Emma Marshall Nutrition. It is really quick and easy to make. I bake at least one loaf every week. It keeps very well in the fridge in a tupperware box or sealed bag.
I have a slice or two for my lunch most days together with a nutritious soup. You can check a couple of Emma’s soup recipes here and here.
190g ground almond
2 tbsp buckwheat flour (can use coconut) – you can use spelt but it is not gluten-free!
40g ground flaxseed
1 tsp sea salt
1 ½ tsp baking powder
30g olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4 and line a small (1lb) loaf tin with parchment
- Put all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until everything is combined
- Bake until its golden and cooked through (approximately 40 minutes)
- Pierce it with a skewer and it should come out clean
- Leave it to cool then turn it out
- Store in a sealed Tupperware in the fridge or in a ziplock bag or you can slice and put in the freezer and take out a slice when you need it.
It is especially delicious topped with avocado and sliced tomatoes.
Don’t forget to add lots of garlic, ginger, turmeric, honey and herbs and spices to your recipes. They not only add flavour to your recipes but also have excellent properties to support your immune system.
I have currently added Vitamin C and Zinc to my repertoire of supplements as they are two vitamins that are reportedly good for supporting your immune system.
Best wishes and stay well, Josephine
Thanks for this recipe Josephine. It is very timely as I have all the ingredients. I am running out of rice flour which is used in a lot of gluten free baking & your recipe doesn’t need this! I’ll try it tomorrow…
Enjoying your recipe but don’t know what is flaxseed.
Please could you explain me ?
can i use gram flour?
I don’t see why not. I often use chickpea flour in my recipes. It might give the bread a slightly more savoury flavour. Let me know how you get on.
I’m in the USA and your measurements are confusing to me. I can go online to find out some of the equivalencies but what is 190g ground almond? Is that almond flour? or just ground almonds? Thank you! This bread sounds delicious and so easy since you use a food processor. Again, thanks!
