6 Ingredient Gluten-Free Buckwheat Flax Bread Recipe

To make this buckwheat flax bread, you will need only six ingredients, buckwheat, flaxseed, almond flour, olive oil, psyllium husk powder, and baking powder. The only other basic pantry ingredients are salt and water. This is a grain-free, plant-based bread recipe, and takes just minutes to prepare for baking.

Three key ingredients that contribute to the nutritional value of this 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.

Serving suggestions

I love the flavor and texture of this bread. It is firm, and has a slightly crispy crust. It is rich, and hearty and makes satisfying sandwiches.

My favourite way to enjoy this gluten-free bread is with salmon spread, or avocado slices. And pairs well with a delicious stew or hearty soup.
