I have been low carb and gluten free for quite some time now. I rarely (unless I have no choice) eat things that come out of packages. Bread is certainly out of the question, that shit is just garbage no matter how many ways companies try to disguise their products with healthy catch phrases. Traditional bread of any shape or form just doesn’t work for me. However, that being said, I LOVE to eat bread. It just isn’t good for me. But I love sandwiches and I love toast. So giving it up has been hard. Until I discovered this treat!
This is my alternative to the everyday bread that kills my digestive system. Its made with superfoods Flax and Chia rich in the much needed Omega-3 fatty acids and complete protein and it packs a great taste. I can’t speak enough about how amazing chia and flax is for one’s health. Having this bread everyday will certainly bring many advantages to one’s life, to name a few: reduced inflammation (unlike regular breads), stronger hair, nails, and an increase in energy.
Best part is, its so easy to make and very cost effective!!
Give it a try and let me know how you like it!
Flax and Chia Foccacia Bread
- 1.5 cups flax seed freshly ground (do not use preground flax as it will be rancid)
- .5 cups ground chia seeds
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1 Tbsp olive oil to add to parchment paper
Preheat over to 350 Degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

It will look like this.
Line parchment paper with olive oil.
Add bread batter and spread out to make about half an inch thickness.
Bake for approx 20 minutes. It should look like this.
Allow to cool and slice into whatever slices you want. I slice horizontally too using the top and bottom pieces as my bread slices.
Make a sandwich!
