I came across this recipe in the Bob’s Redmill cookbook and was interested in the texture and high nut protein of this bread. What’s great about it is it’s easy to make without bothering with yeast and resembles black russian rye in density. If you don’t have all the nuts on hand, you can just use sunflower and pumpkin seeds. The chia, eggs, flax and psyllium are what hold this together so nicely .This is a great after school snack with a little cheese and will fill your kids up quick. If you want to go another step, you could also slice this up thinly and double bake it to make crackers. This is a delicious winner.
I love this socca bread traditionally from Southern France. It’s savory and flavourful and best of all gluten free. Chick pea flour or Channa bean flour can easily be found in the South Asian section of any grocery store. If you can come by at least 2 caste iron frying pans..you can play with the thickness of this lovely bread. Always remember to preheat your frying pan so you get a nice crisp crust.
I’ve tried quite a few gluten free bread recipes online and often find the gluten free breads to be either too heavy, dry or crumbly. This recipe was a nice surprise. I did modify it a bit making it easier and healthier. I hope you you enjoy it! I like to add coco and instant coffee for added flavor.
It should resemble cake batter once fully mixed.
Pour into greased 8″ pans and leave to rise.
You can sprinkle on seeds before baking. The texture is surprisingly good..especially toasted. Enjoy!
