Nordic nut bread - without flour

Nordic nut bread - without flour 0

Although different from the breads you are used to, this Nordic bread is highly nutritious and tastes very rich!

A bread made entirely of nuts, grains, seeds, eggs (the real ones for omnis and veganegg for veggies) and oil.

Thanks to its flavor with many nuances and its dense texture, a single slice will be more than enough to fill you! As you can imagine, this type of bread will provide you with a lot of energy, nutrients, fiber and high satiating power given the wide variety of nuts and seeds it contains.

No flour, yeast or leaven, no kneading or leavening ...!

Its preparation will take no more than 10 minutes. The most "complex" job will be to fill the mold where you will cook it.

This recipe is the basic one, however, you can vary it to make for example: 

  • rosemary and olive bread 
  • pain au chocolat and dried cranberries
  • date bread 
  • raisin and cinnamon bread
  • and more!

Flax tortillas in 4 ingredients

Flax tortillas in 4 ingredients 0

Many wonder how to consume fine flaxseed to benefit from its many benefits ... here is an original and really delicious way to use them! With only 4 ingredients, this flaxseed tortilla recipe will surprise you with their soft and supple texture. You can garnish them as you wish or according to your fancy, the only limit is your imagination! For my part, I love them garnished with hazelnut butter and sliced ​​bananas for lunch !!

 

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EAT FLAX SEEDS?


Flax seeds contain many nutrients that are beneficial for your health (they must be crushed to reap their benefits !!), the most important of which are:

  • Omega 3 fatty acids, also known as "good fats": they protect your heart and have been shown to be beneficial nutrients for lowering triglycerides and lowering blood pressure.
  • Lignans, flax seed is the plant that contains the most lignans, an antioxidant found in the fibrous part of flax seeds. Lignans are also phytoestrogens, a plant nutrient that could act in some way as estrogen, a female hormone. This is a very controversial topic and scientists are not sure what impact lignans have on our hormones. While some studies seem to prove that it can help fight breast cancer, others have shown that phytoestrogens do not mimic estrogen at all and instead prevent the formation of blood tumors.
  • Fiber, flax seeds contain 27g of fiber per 100g. Note that it is recommended to consume around 25g of fiber per day for women and 38g for men.

 

 

Flax tortillas in 4 ingredients 

PREPARATION TIME: 10 MINUTES
COOKING TIME: 2 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 12 MINUTES

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of organic golden flax seeds  
1 cup of boiled water
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric (or: ginger, or garlic powder or onion powder)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a blender, add the flax seeds, mix at high speed until they form a flour. Be careful to grind well until you have flour otherwise they will not absorb the water in the recipe and the tortillas will not stick together.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  3. Remove from the heat, stir in all the spices and add the flax flour all at once.
  4. Stir quickly with a wooden spoon, until the flax flour absorbs all the water and forms a ball of dough. While stirring, the dough will form, it will gradually peel off the pan to finally form a ball of dough. It takes 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the dough ball from the pan and transfer it to a piece of parchment paper or a floured surface. The dough should not be too sticky, if necessary simply sprinkle a little extra flax flour on the ball.
  6. Divide the ball into 4 balls of dough of the same size. Place one of the dough balls on a piece of parchment paper or floured surface. Place another piece of parchment paper on top to prevent the dough from sticking to the roller. Lightly press the balls of dough with your hand to flatten and glue the top piece of parchment paper to the ball.
  7. Roll with a rolling pin until dough is flat but not too thin or will not become soft when cooked. Aim for a thickness of 2-3 mm. Remove the paper.
  8. Using a round shape like a plate, place it on top of the dough and cut the edges with a knife to form a circle.
  9. Remove the rest of the dough, form a ball and reuse later if desired.
  10. Place the circle of dough in a non-stick skillet previously reheated over medium heat.
  11. Bake for 1 to 2 minutes or until the edge is dry - the center should be soft - and you can easily slide a spatula under the dough to turn it over.
  12. Cook for about 1 additional minute on the other side. Do not overcook or the dough will get very crisp, like tortilla chips! It should be dry but easy to roll.
  13. Place the cooked wraps on a plate.
  14. Repeat these steps with the rest of the dough until you form 4 wraps.
  15. Serve them cold with the garnish of your choice or hot.

 

Note:

  • I suggest you golden flax seeds to have a milder taste, brown flax seeds can also be used but the taste will be more bitter. 
  • You can use different spices to vary the taste: smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, dried basil, thyme or rosemary. Simply replace the 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric with the spice of your choice!

Cashew and cocoa butter 0

Remember when you were little and your mom used to tell you that all she wanted for a gift was "a hug or something homemade"? Since it's Mother's Day this Sunday, I thought I'd suggest a cashew and cocoa butter recipe to show your mom how much you care!

Easy to prepare (and even easier to eat), our delicious Cashew Cocoa Butter is a deliciously healthy alternative to your traditional chocolate spreads ... and of course, it's also delicious for the rest of the family!

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.

  3. Pour the toasted cashews into a powerful blender or food processor and blend until their oils are released and they begin to form a paste (Takes about 10 minutes, depending on your blender. You may need to stop halfway, scrape the sides and let the blender cool).

  5. Transfer the nut butter to a jar (preferably with a tight-fitting lid)

Nourishing homemade bread (machine-made, gluten-free, vegan)

Nourishing homemade bread (machine-made, gluten-free, vegan) 4

Not being able to eat bread anymore, I believe that is the most difficult for all those who have a gluten-free and vegan diet ... Because is there a better smell than baking bread? In my eyes, there is none! So yes you can find gluten-free bread in supermarkets, but I almost fell in the apple when I saw its price the first time. Without talking about its size, with a family of 5, a loaf of bread disappears really quickly!

As I made my bread myself using the bread machine a few years ago, I therefore challenged myself to make this bread myself without gluten and above all, with real nutritious ingredients!

It is sometimes difficult to make a gluten-free bread recipe. With a more dense consistency, this type of bread also tastes a little more spicy.

You might think that making bread is difficult, and indeed, I had to test several ... yes, really several recipes !! Just recently, I definitely have THE recipe we adopted! It only contains simple, nutritious ingredients and the bread maker does all the work for us ...

This recipe gives us a tasty and very nutritious bread with all the seeds it contains. It is delicious to accompany a bowl of soup or simply for lunch with a small homemade jam!

So why buy a little tasty bread or go without when you can make our own for a fraction of the price and above all which is much better for your body?

Without further ado, here is THE recipe for homemade bread 

 

Nourishing homemade bread (machine-made, gluten-free, vegan)

Ingredients

2 tsp maple syrup
Cup 1 / 3 organic golden flax seeds
Cup 1 / 3 organic sunflower seeds
Cup 1 / 3 organic european pumpkin seeds 
2 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
3 tbsp of psyllium
2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp of chia seeds
2 cups of water
2 tsp baking soda

 

Preparation

  1. Put all the ingredients in the bread maker tank.
  2. Select the gluten-free mode.
  3. Let the machine do the work ....
  4. Enjoy!

 

 * for an even more nutritious bread or to vary the taste, do not hesitate to replace a portion of the seeds with nuts, such as organic natural almonds trenches, organic dried cranberries, or even why not, 70% organic chocolate chips

 

Good treat!
