Recipe For Gluten Free Nut And Seed Loaf

I have a very methodical way of dealing with my emails. I reply to them as soon as possible first and foremost. If they need further attention I leave them in my in-box, and if not, I move them to the appropriate folder. My friends send me recipes to try quite often and those go straight into the folder marked Lavender and Lime. I must admit I’m nowhere close to making my way through them. The other day I decided to tidy up this folder as it is overwhelmed with recipes, event invitations and book reviews. I’m so blessed by the abundance, but it needs organising. The timing could not have been better as I was actually stumped by this months’ challenge and while I was tidying up I came across an email from my friend Kim with the subject line ‘nut bread recipe’. I opened the attachment and printed out the recipe titled The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread. This recipe had obviously been waiting for me and completely matched this month’s brief. The first time I made it, it failed, and I turned the nuts and seeds into rusks for Dave. I then clicked on the link to the actual site and noted that her cup measurements did not yield the same weight measurements as mine did. It has made me rethink my express measures which I am going to delete off my blog. This Gluten Free Nut And Seed Loaf is not to my taste but Dave and Nico loved it. Kim describes it as follows

This is the most delicious ‘bread’ – Sandy’s been making it and its sensational. One can “go savoury” by adding finely diced olives or snipped sun dried tomatoes or simply, say, tarragon….. or “go sweet” by adding finely chopped dates and lemon zest or a small handful of raisins. Substitute the rolled oats with spelt flakes and one table spoon of raw honey.

I might make it again using olives as it was the texture I did not enjoy and maybe with a few soft morsels to break up the nuts and seeds I will enjoy it more.

  8. This is definitely an interesting “loaf”! I am all for trying something new, especially anything gluten free as my belly seems to not be loving the gluten life recently! I am going to try this, but go for the savory route and add sun dried tomatoes.. because I love them and in my opinion NOTHING can taste bad as long as those are included! 🙂 Cheers to a beautiful weekend, my dear!

  13. It’s very nutty and seedy. I liked it but I don’t know if I would make it every week although it was nice to try out. I think your adaptions sound great!

  14. Hello Tandy,
    How is it in your Neck Of The Woods? It is still stormy and hot hear in ours. This recipes looks amazing. I am a nut fan.
    Olives also sound good.
    I just love a good homemade bread.
