Chia seed bread….you will need

1/4 cup of chia seeds

1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup of oats

1/2 teaspoon sea salt 2 tbsp flaxseeds 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup of wholegrain unrefined spelt flour

1 cup filtered water


To make

Combine all of the ingredients together and mix with a spoon.

Leave to sit for 30 minutes to allow to chia seeds to absorb some of the water making it a dough consistency.

Spread the dough out on a piece of non stick parchment paper.

Place another piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and roll out the dough as thin as you can get it

*Rolling the dough can be tricky because the chia seeds are quite sticky so you need the second piece of parchment paper

After rolling, remove the top layer of parchment paper and cut into squares using a pizza cutter.

Place into a pre heated oven for 30-40 mins until golden brown Leave to cool and break up into formed squares

They are ready to eat!!!!

This is an example of low G.I and a great snack for those on the one simple change programme as a substitute for bread!

Mum searched for this recipe as a participant in the One Simple Change programme,  adding this as a substitute to make 1 change for 30 days!

hope you find it helpful
