Bread (á la Terry Pratchett's Discworld series)
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 15
  • 1½ cup (200g) dried nut pulp (or almond meal)
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp (115g) chia seeds
1 ½ cups (145g) rolled oats
  • 4 tbsp. (28g) psyllium seed husks (3 tbsp if using psyllium husk powder)
  • 1 tsp fine grain sea salt (1½ tsp if using coarse salt)
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup (or a pinch of stevia)
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil or ghee
  • 1¾ cups water
  1. Combine all dry ingredients, stirring well.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick (if the dough is too thick to stir, add one or two teaspoons of water until the dough is manageable).
  3. Press into a loaf pan. Smooth out the top as it will not settle on its own. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours up to overnight. It should retain its shape even when you pull the sides of the loaf pan away from it.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  5. Place loaf pan in the oven on the middle rack, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down on a baking sheet and bake for another 30-40 minutes. Bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped and it's golden brown on all sides. Let cool completely before slicing.
  6. Store bread in an airtight container for up to five days. Slice before freezing for quick and easy toast!
If you add more water to the dough when mixing, be sure to extend the baking time to compensate. The recipe is very forgiving in this way since the bread won't really rise so much as dry out.

Makes excellent toast!
