Salubrious Saturday – The Life Changing Loaf of Bread

Hola and Happy Salubrious/Health Saturday!!!! This recipe comes from Yahoo Food, a new site that features great information and awesome photos. Now I have not tried this particular recipe but I have tried some that were similar and they always came out great. The life changing loaf is a wonderful combination of oats, nuts, seeds, and sweetener. It looks so good. If you decide to or have made this or a similar recipe, let me know. I always like good food news.

Enjoy Your Saturday!!!

The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread
Makes 1 loaf

1 ½ cups rolled oats
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
4 Tbsp. psyllium seed husks (3 Tbsp. if using psyllium husk powder)

In a loaf pan, combine all dry ingredients. Whisk maple syrup, oil and water together in a separate bowl. Add mixture to the dry ingredients and combine until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick, adding 1-2 teaspoons water if dough is too thick to stir. Smooth top and let sit at room temperature for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Bake bread for 20 minutes, then remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down, directly on a rack, and bake for another 30-40 minutes (it should sound hollow when tapped). Let cool completely before slicing.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
