Oh my, if you love fresh baked bread like I do, especially one made from seeds, then you’ve got to give this recipe a try today, I did! Umm yummy. Psyllium husk bread is delicious, very easy to make and so good for you too. This amazing recipe brought to you by the SimpleCookingChannel is Paleo friendly and is completely flour and sugar free.

Psyllium is a natural form of fiber from the Plantago ovata plant, specifically from the husks of the plant’s seed. Most commonly it is known as a bulk-forming laxative ingredient; psyllium provides benefits to your body such as fighting heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, bowel disease and so much more. Everyone could use a little more Psyllium in their diet, so let’s get cooking!!

Ingredients

5 Eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 tsp of salt (to taste)
3 tbs of coconut oil
2.1 oz  Psyllium husks
1.4 oz chia seeds
1.4 oz pumpkin seeds
1.4 oz sunflower seeds
0.7 oz quinoa
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda

Step 3: preparing for the oven

Get a loaf pan, in this recipe it’s a silicone loaf pan but you can use whatever you like. Personally, I used a glass loaf pan. No need to grease the pan. Use a spoon and start pouring the mixture into the loaf pan. Once it’s filled just flatten out the top and it’s ready for the oven.

Step 4: bake & serve

Pop the loaf pan into the oven and bake for approximately 55 minutes until fairly dark brown. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Using a sharp bread knife cut slices and serve plain or top with butter or your favorite toppings. I’ve already tried it with peanut butter and jelly and also topped with cream cheese.

This bread can be substituted for anytime you would normally use regular bread for sandwiches or for breakfast toast, whatever it is you like. It is much healthier for you to use Psyllium Husk bread, than any regular store bought breads.

** Substitutions/alternatives

Since I love all kinds of different ingredients I actually added to this recipe poppy seeds and covered my loaf in sesame seeds. Next time I may even add in a ripe banana or two. My friend makes hers with zucchini. Let me know how you have modified the recipe in the comments below.

Hope you enjoy!
