Picture of Nut and Seed Bread (Grain & Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

An easy nutrient dense bread alternative made from almonds, seeds and dates. Delicious on its own with the crunch of nuts, seeds and natural sweetness of medjool dates, even better smothered with tahini and honey. This nut and seed bread can be sliced and frozen for a quick healthy breakfast each morning during your busy week. The almonds can be replaced with any preferred seed to keep this nut bread free.

Could you make it vegan by using Chia seeds soaked in water instead of the eggs?

loveurbelly (author)creaky2016-06-03

I haven't tried chia before but I think a flax egg would work. Let me know would love to know how it goes :)

I feel like a step is left out.. you put the dates in whole??

loveurbelly (author)stukawife2016-06-01

Thanks for letting me know, apologies, I have updated the recipe. The dates, should be de-seeded and quartered lengthways.

I really like this idea and the simplicity of it. I have one critique of your photos to help you sell the idea to readers and get more votes: the scattered seeds should not be in every photo. Although the seeds give it an artistic flair, there are no shots where seeds are not left lying around which makes it look like really crumbly seed bread that falls apart way too easily. I would suggest at least one photo without the scattered seeds to show that it is not a crumbly type of bread and slices nicely.

I would really like to try this recipe. it looks simple, delicious and super healthy. Adding to my favorites. Thanks for uploading!
