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 tablespoon 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.

awesome! I shouldn’t eat gluten, so the recipe sounds perfect to me!
Hope you try it out Marcela 🙂
Sounds absolutely fab… and wholesome too! xx
Very wholesome Liz 🙂
Fabulous loaf Tandy. Would eat way too many slices with copious amounts of butter.
Have a happy weekend.

It needed a lot of butter Mandy xxx
From the looks of it, it looks like a VERY delicious bread with all the chunks and crunches..Mmmm!!
Thanks Julie 🙂
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.
Sorry, I haven’t been around much. I am stuck in the hospital. The internet is faster here but I just haven’t had much free time. Danny has been awesome and here with me all week. Have a wonderful Week. Sarah
Sorry to hear you have been in hospital Sarah – wishing you better 🙂
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!
I must try the adaptations and see if I prefer it 🙂
Simply damn delicious loaf!!!

Thanks Dedy 🙂
Yum! This loaf looks delicious, Tandy! I love the fact it is gluten free. Definitely going to be trying this! 😀
Please let me know what you think of it Jess 🙂
Thanks for your candor, Tandy – but from that ingredient list, think I might agree with Dave and Nico – I love the sound of this loaf!
I am sure you will love it Shashi 🙂
I deal with emails the same way. And I actually saw the The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread this very week online! Small world. Glad to get your take on it and know the right link now. I would be up for trying it for sure.
What a co-incidence Evelyne 🙂
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!
Cheyanne, please let me know how the loaf works out for you. Maybe I will try again with the tomatoes 🙂
Have seen this recipe in a few places and have got it on my to try list too – Tandy! Yes, I think olives would be a interesting and delicious addition.
Let me know what you think of the bread Rachel 🙂
I’m allergic to gluten so this recipe is absolutely perfect for me! Looooove it !!
Thanks Agness 🙂
I LOVE that the first instruction is to Pray!! This is obviously the recipe for me…. I have always been rubbish at making bread -and that’s clearly why!
Ha ha, I really should learn to not type so fast! But, I can see that praying will work 😉
Yummy! It sounds delicious and healthy.
Thanks Doreen 🙂
This bread looks so healthful and delicious! A great alternative to the carb laden stuff! 😀
It is a great alternative 🙂
Yummy! This GF nut and seed loaf looks delicious, Tandy! Sounds divine. I need to make this soon! ?
Let me know if you do 🙂
I really like this recipe Tandy. I often buy something quite similar with figs or dates and cut it for a dessert.
I think that is a great idea Tammy 🙂
