  • 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 7 tbsp water
  • cup all purpose flour or 1:1 gluten free baking flour
  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • tsp instant yeast
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cup light olive oil
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • cups unsweetened almond milk, warm
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds


  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl mix the flaxseed and water, set aside for 5 minutes to allow it to become a gel like substance.
  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer whisk together the flours, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, yeast, sugar and salt.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and beat until smooth. (Mixture will be sticky.)
  • Place the batter into the prepared tin, spread the batter with a wet spatula. Sprinkle with seeds, cover and allow it to sit in a warm place for 45-60 minutes to double in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 176 C.
  • When the dough has risen remove the cover and place in the oven to cook for 45-50 minutes. The bread should be ready when it sounds hollow when tapped and the outside is crusty.
  • Allow the dough to cool completely on a cooling rack before slicing into 16-18 slices.
  • Bread will remain fresh for up to 3 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.




  • Sliced bread can be frozen for up to 2 months.
  • Using a wet spatula to smooth the dough helps to stop the dough from sticking to the spatula while spreading.
  • To stop the seeds from falling off the top of the loaf after cooking, gently press the seeds into the top of the loaf.
  • To make this bread gluten free, substitute the all purpose flour with your favorite gluten free flour blend.
