Vegan, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free

 

Ingredients

1+1/2 cup buckwheat, soaked for 1 hour & drained well

1 cup sunflower seeds

1 cup pepitas + extra sprinkling for topping

1 cup sesame seeds

2tbsp chia seeds

4tbsp psyllium husks

1tbsp nutritional yeast *can omit

2tbsp flaxseed meal

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1+ 1/4 cup water

 

Method

  • Line a medium size loaf tin with baking paper. *This loaf doesn't rise, so loaf depth and size will determine how high your loaf turns out. 

  • In a mixing bowl, add drained buckwheat and all dry ingredients. Stor together until well mixed. 

  • Add melted coconut oil to your water and whisk together. Pour over dry ingredients and mix together until "dough" begins to stick together and liquid is evenly mixed through.

  • Scrape "dough" into your loaf tin, even out mixture with the back of a spoon or a spatula and press down firmly to make loaf compact.

  • Let loaf sit aside for an hour (or overnight if prepared) to ensure mixture has gelled together well. 

  • Once loaf has sat aside for adequate amount of time, pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celcius. 

  • Place loaf into oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and remove loaf from tin using the sides of baking paper. Place loaf (with baking paper still underneath) onto a baking tray or wire rack and place into oven for another 40 minutes, until edges are well browned.

If serving straight away:

  • Leave oven running, let loaf cool slightly and slice into desired sizes. Place singular slices back into the oven to allow middles to brown ready to serve warmed and crunchy,

If saving:

  • Turn oven off and let loaf cool completely. Slice into desired sizes. Place into a container and store in refrigerator for longer shelf life.

  • If freezing, place into a container or zip-lock bag pre-sliced and freeze.

  • As mentioned above. Toast single slices in oven and serve warm! Or remove from fridge or freezer and place slices into your toaster or sandwhich press, ready to be topped with your favourite cracker/toast topping! Can also be eaten un-toasted/warmed as you have already pre-baked it!
