This is a great idea. I thought “here’s a great recipe” when I first saw it on Milana’s blog. I called it bread because it is loaf shaped and because my original plan was to have it in lieu of the standard refined carbs stuffed bread. You might know I am constantly fighting carbohydrates, a battle I always lose when in front of a fragrant dish of pasta al pomodoro (pasta with marinara sauce).

So this was my escape plan for all those evenings when a claustrophobic and crowded ride back home in the London Underground tube sucks up my mental energy so much as to leave me incapable of copying even the most essential home cooking directions. Those quick-and-easy-toast nights, you know. A slice of no flour bread with on top something I find in the fridge (hopefully) and et voila’, les jeux sont fait (meaning the chips are down, meaning that when I can’t be bothered cooking I can eat a box of these cookies, ergo I need a strategic action plan to avoid a sugar overdose from sweets and also complex carbs in pasta and pizza).

The good news is that you don’t need a hacksaw to slice this bread, your common knife will do; the bad one is that you need to be physically and mentally prepared for a proving chewing session, with your jaw getting trained for the World Championship of Resistant Mastication.

If you survive this stage, you get to taste a slice of nutty goodness whose density of nutrients is as high as the density matter of a black hole (and yeah, you’ll probably win the above-mentioned championship). Spreading a moist and simple pate’ on this bread is a must. Pesto, hummus or a veggie spread, everything will contrast well with the crunchiness of this concentrate of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals.

At the end of the day, we get lots of good things from this not-for-mortal-souls bread. Firstly, after two or three bites we feel full already (either because of the above-mentioned density or because we’ve got enough jaw workout). Secondly, we exercise our jaw and increase oxygen to the joints and muscles (no joking). Not to mention the effects on the double chin! Benefits from all sides, you see?

  1. Please could you post carb count. I am on very low carb and hopefully can incorporate this recipe. Looks fantastic. Thank you. Meryl

  2. Johnny, I’ve had the pleasure of attending four different colleges (one was a commnty college). In my opinion, none of them comes near Baruch. I learned the most and worked the hardest and it was by far the cheapest.Now, Community College on the other hand was pretty bad but for 1/10 of the cost it still makes sense to send your snot nose there for two yrs and then transfer them out to a school they can actually list on a resume.

  6. I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles

  7. I tried this recipe but mis-interpreted linseed as linseed OIL. Couldn’t find that so I used olive oil. I thought the “bread” was pretty oily but still very good. Going to the store now for some linseed SEEDS and will try again!

  8. I recently made this for my mom and she loves it, she’s already asked for another loaf!I couldn’t find any linseed in the store but I did add about 85-100 grams of dried cranberries and I think that made it turn out really well! Thanks!
