This gluten-free buckwheat flax bread is made with only healthy ingredients – buckwheat, flaxseed, psyllium, almond flour, and heart-healthy olive oil. This bread is vegan, and is made without grains, yeast or dairy.

Three ingredients that make this a healthy buckwheat bread,

Buckwheat — a naturally gluten-free seed that is not related to wheat in any way. This seed contains manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, niacin, zinc, folate, vitamin B6 and dietary fiber.

Flaxseed — another ingredient in this bread recipe that is considered a superfood. This tiny seed is loaded with nutrients, dietary fiber and contains good quality protein.

Psyllium — comes from the husk of the seed of the Plantago plant and has an array of health benefits. Some studies have shown that adding psyllium to your diet will help with weight loss. When buying psyllium for baking, do not buy the metamucil brand. This brand does not work in this recipe. This is my favourite psyllium husk powder.

ways to enjoy buckwheat flax bread,

What I love about this bread are the flavour and texture. The bread tastes earthy and makes excellent sandwiches. The crust is firm and slightly crispy. And, the dark brown bread is hearty and satisfying.

Two of my favourite ways to enjoy this gluten-free bread are with salmon spread or avocado egg salad sandwiches. They compliment each other beautifully. 

This high fiber bread is guilt-free because it is packed with so much goodness. It makes delicious sandwiches, serves as a starter, makes a great addition to salads or dip into your favourite stew or hearty soup.

I recommend storing this bread in the fridge. The grain-free plant-based bread will keep up to five days when refrigerated. If you are searching for gluten-free bread that will keep you satisfied, help you with weight loss and is healthy, look no further. Enjoy!

Hello! Thank you very much for this absolutely delicious bread recipe! We love it very much! Only subs I did is(because I didn’t have enough almond flour), I have used a half almond and a half PB flour. Also added some pumpkin and white sesame seeds. Thank you very much! Blessings!
