One of the recipes I found recently is one for a protein bread - it's fairly similar to soda bread in that it contains yogurt (or quark) but its texture is much lighter and it is packed with healthy seeds - yum! It's yeastfree, so doesn't need any rising time - ideal if you ate in a rush but want homemade bread. I hope you like this one!
Protein bread (makes 1 medium loaf / approx. 20 slices)
Use a 25cm loaf tin - the loaf in the picture is a small one using half the recipe amounts & a small tin
100g ground almonds
100g ground flax seeds (also known as linseeds)
4 tbsps oat bran or porridge oats
2 tbsps wholemeal flour (or use spelt flour if you have any)
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsps salt
300g low fat Greek yogurt or quark
8 egg whites (medium size eggs)
2 tbsps pumpkin seeds
2 tbsps sunflower seeds
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C (150 in a fan oven).
Line a 25cm loaf tin with baking paper.
Simply mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, pour dough into the tin and bake for ca. 50 minutes.
Leave the loaf to rest for 10 - 15 minutes before removing from the tin, then leave to cool completely.
