What I ate Wednesday and a grain free walnut flax bread recipe

walnutbread (33)

For breakfast I ate a piece of my walnut flax bread with jam. I have been working on making a sandwich bread that I can use instead of buying it from the store. This bread is fairly dense and is good for a snack or with dinner but a little dense to use for a sandwich. It is a great source of fiber and loaded with anti inflammatory omega-3 fats.

Walnut flax bread (grain free/vegan)

2/3 cup ground walnuts (soaked or freshly shelled)

1/2 cup coconut flour (freshly ground)

1/4 cup ground flax seeds mixed with 1/4 cup warm water (let sit for a few minutes to thicken)

1/4 cup ground raw buckwheat (a gluten free seed-not a grain)

3 tablespoons tapioca flour

1/4 cup coconut milk

2 teaspoons vinegar

pinch of sea salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

Mix ingredients together and bake in a greased pan at 300 for about 45 minutes (or until the knife comes out clean after you test it)

For lunch I made some black bean garden chili. I love making chili because you can slip  in a ton of veggies and the kids don’t really notice. I threw in shredded carrots, shredded beets, butternut squash, cilantro, red bell peppers, onions and tomatoes (technically a fruit along with bell peppers).  I usually put a half of a chopped avocado on top but I was out so I just put a little coconut milk and fresh veggies. I had the lunch leftovers for dinner as well. For desert I made some really tasty raw carob raisin bars that I didn’t get a picture of because we ate them so fast and it was dark out so the lighting would have been no good. I will post those tomorrow.

  1. Im going to try this bread tomorrow. I have been making a coconut bread for weeks now. About 3 loaves a week but a nice change is in order. I was going to make a raw bread also . But will give this one a go. Can I use apple cider vinegar for the vinegar? Also what is the tapioca flour for? I do not have that, can I replace it with just more coconut or buckwheat flour or is it crucial to the bread?

    • I think any type of vinegar would work in this. I use the tapioca flour to help hold things together but you could try more buckwheat flour too. Buckwheat has a similar effect as long as it is raw.
