V, GF, DF, SF

Ingredients

2x large avocado (haas or other)

1x cup buckwheat flour (can substitute for other flour)

3tbsp psyllium husks

1tsp pink himilayan rock salt

1/2 cup pepitas + extra for topping

1/3 cup LSA  (Linseed, sunflower and almond meal) or plain linseed meal

Sesame seeds for topping (can use a mixture of seeds e.g. linseeds, sunflower, pepitas, buckwheat. quinoa)

 

Method

  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a medium loaf tin with baking paper

  • Cut the avo's through the centre, remove core and scoop out flesh from all 4 quarters into a blender. Blend until smooth.

  • In a bowl add all your dry ingredients except pepitas (buckwheat flour, psyllium, salt, LSA) and mix together.

  • Add dry ingredients to the blender and mix until a moist dough is formed. 

  • Now add in pepitas and slowly mix in (so they don't get chopped up too much).

  • Scoop mixture into the prepared loaf tin and smooth out the top with a spatula or back of a spoon. Sprinkle pepitas and sesame seeds (or mixed seeds) on top of loaf and press down to make them stick into mixture.

  • Place loaf tin into the oven and bake for 1 hour. You may need more to ensure the middle is cooked through.

  • It is hard to tell when it is cooked because it will still be a moist loaf due to the avo however, when the top is browned & roughly after around 1 hour, 15 minutes it should definately be done. Another thing to note is that when you toast the loaf again (in a toaster or sandwhich press), it will cook it a little further too!

Storage:

  • Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. Optimally it will last 5-7 days, however possibly longer.

  • Pre-slice the loaf and freeze- either in a container, or wrapped individually, or in a zip lock bag. Remove single slices at a time to savour the loaf!

 

Serving Suggestions!

  • Definately a winner!: Head to my breakfast page to get the ultimate, delicious herbed-tomato, runny egg combo.

  • Make it sweet- who said banana & avo doesn't go together? Toast in a toaster or sandwhich press, slather with 1tbsp nut butter (almond would be delish)! and 1/4-1/2 sliced banana.

  • Or toast, add the nut butter, then sprinkle with frozen or fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or passionfruit!

  • Take it plain as a snack- there are enough nutrients, healthy-fat, carbs and some protein from the buckwheat flour in this loaf to serve as a delicious mid morning or afternoon snack! Have it plain or sprinkle some more sesame seeds on top or drizzle a little bit of white or black tahini and wallah you're full of goodness!
