Bread! Such a delicious edible “plate” for all the delicious treats such as prosciutto, cream cheese, cheese and pickles, and of course Nutella! A homemase, sugar free one, of course! Drooling already? What if I tell you that this delicious, amazingly smelling bread is, to top it all off, even gluten and yeast free and does not contain any unhealthy ingredients.
I won’t lie to you, this bread is not even close to the freshly baked white, corn, buckwheat, [insert your favorite kind of bread here] bread, but it is (at least for me) a very delicious alternative for the times when you want to avoid gluten and at the same time provide your body with delicious and nutritious ingredients. A healthy balance between both is what I aim for.
So, this paleo version of bread is made as follows:
100 ml milk (any kind)
100 ml hazelnut/almond flour
200 ml different kinds of seeds (linen, sunflower, pumpkin…)
1,5 tbsp psyllium husk
4 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 package baking powder
pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line a small bread baking pan with baking paper. Mix all ingredients well, while slowly adding the milk. The stated amount might be a bit too much so just stop adding it once you reach the desired thickness. Spread the mixture in the pan evenly and bake for 35 minutes. Enjoy!
I also mentioned healthy Nutella, right? Well, this is so simple to make, that you won’t ever reach for the store bought one ever again. I posted a similar recipe before, but this one has even fewer calories. Just toast whole hazelnuts in a pan until the peel comes of. At his point, your kitchen will smell a-mazaing! Remove the peel and grind the hazelnuts in a food processor until you get hazelnut butter (be patient, it might take 15 minutes). Then add cocoa powder (no more than 2 tbsp per 200g of hazelnuts) and Sukrin (I added 3 tbsp per 200g of hazelnuts, but feel free to add more or less, depending on your sweettoothness). Mix well and store in an air-tight glass in a fridge.
