This nut and seed loaf is not your typical loaf of bakery bread. It is moist, chewy and has the occasional crunch of hazelnuts. Packed with seeds like flax, chia and sunflower, it is incredibly rich in Omega fatty-acids, anti-oxidants and minerals like magnesium and selenium. The oats, psyllium, chia and flax seeds hold this beautifully-speckled loaf together in the absence of flour and provides your body with both soluble and insoluble fibre. This loaf is vegan and gluten free. Try it toasted and topped with your favourite sweet or savoury spread.
