    Posted on June 20, 2022 by in Even Healthier Recipes

    Do you love bread, but are afraid to eat it because most bread is full of gluten, yeast, sugar and dead calories? This amazing ‘functional bread’ is full of goodness. It is more of a supplement than bread and it tastes like European bread too. Feel free to add your own superfood mix to it.

    Ingredients for a 30 slice (1.5kg) bread

    For the sourdough

      • sourdough starter
      • 350gr buckwheat flour
      • 350ml water
    • 2 tablespoons Probioform (liquid probiotic)

    For the bread

    • 700gr of Buckwheat sourdough
    • 80 gr Cassava flour (replace with another flour if you are not good with tapioca)
    • 30 gr Almond meal
    • 30gr Hemp flour
    • 60gr organic GF flour of your choice (e.g. rice, corn)
    • 2 tablespoons baking powder (aluminium free)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
    • 1 tablespoon coconut or olive oil
    • 2 Tablespoons Caraway and/or Fennel (optional)
    • 200 gr mixed seeds (e.g. Sunflower, Sesame, Pumpkin, Chia etc)
    • 8 tablespoons Fibre (K-Fibre, Herbal Fiberblend, Psyllium Husk – make it a mix of soluble and unsoluble fibres)
    • 4 large eggs (beaten) – if you are vegan you can use egg replacement or nutmilk to replace the liquid
    • 120 ml of water

    Superfood mix

    Time to prepare:

    preparation time 30 minutes (without sourdough prep)

    cooking/baking time 60 minutes

    Step 1

    Feed your buckwheat sourdough slowly till you used the buckwheat flour and water to achieve a healthy 700gr sourdough. Put it in a large bowel.

    Step 2

    Mix all dry ingredients.

    Step 3

    Mix all liquid ingredients (eggs, oil, water) together and add to the sourdough

    Step 4

    Now put the dry ingredients into the sourdough and mix well. Note: this will be a more liquid dough

    Step 5

    Put the mixture into a bread baking pan lined with baking paper.

    Step 6

    Bake at 200C for 60 minutes

    Step 7

    Take it out of the pan and remove the baking paper. Let it cool down before slicing.

    The bread can be still slightly moist inside. It depends a little on your sourdough. But that is the beauty about this bread – it is never boring 🙂
