The Perfect Paleo bread seems to be on everyone’s to do list these days. This is a delicious gluten and dairy free bread where pumpkin seeds form the bulk of the loaf. The green colour is enticing and it holds together well when sliced. I have tested the recipe several times and am very happy with the result. I hope you enjoy it!
I can imagine myself topping this with something delicious like avocado and tomato, or if you eat dairy some good quality grass fed butter. Following a Primal lifestyle l eat Wholefoods such as meat, vegetables, eggs, fruit, nuts, seeds and healthy oils. This bread is actually composed of some of those wholefoods or products made from wholefoods such as coconut flour. It is extremely easy to make with the most important part being to let the loaf cool in the pan.
A food processor is required for this recipe as the Pumpkin seeds need to be processed and this is difficult to do any other way. I have used activated seeds and l would advise you to use them to decrease the anti-nutrient content of the loaf.
2 1/2 cups of Pumpkin seeds (activated)
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
4 eggs (Free range, Organic or local pasture raised)
1/3 cup Coconut Flour
1/4 Cup Rice Malt Syrup
1/2 teaspoon Bicarb Soda (Bobs Red Mill)
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Pink Rock Salt (or Sea Salt)
1/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds (activated) plus extra for the top.
Remove the bread from the oven and let cool in the pan until almost cool. With a knife cut around the edge of the bread to loosen it.
I advise slicing the bread into single serves and storing them in the freezer to use as required, although it would keep several days out of the freezer. This bread could also be taken to work as a snack on its own or you could take the toppings with you. It could be placed under the grill and heated also.
