- 4 free range eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
- 200g or 2 cups of ground almonds
- 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tbsp of Arrowroot powder (optional)
- 50g or 1/3 cup of milled chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp of honey or maple syrup (optional)
Whisk 4 eggs until they turn pale.
Add the salt and the vinegar. Keep on whisking.
Add the ground almonds, bicarbonate of soda, and arrowroot powder.
Mix really well and finally add the chia seeds and honey. If you don’t have milled chia seeds, you can use them whole.
Line a cake tray with coconut oil and baking paper. Pour the mixture in and decorate with chia seeds.
Bake at 300 F / 150 C for 50 minutes. The cooking time can vary depending on the ovens. To make sure it is cooked through, insert a toothpick and see if it comes out clean. If not, it needs cooking longer.
Once cooked, let the bread cool down before slicing it.
*if you are allergic to nuts or prefer not to use almond flour (ground almonds) for any other reason, you can replace it with quinoa flour. 200g or 2 cups of almond flour can be replaced with 120g or 2 cups of quinoa flour.
Keeps for up to 5 days in the fridge.
