Healthy ‘Seed’ Bread

DSC_0559This weekend was great. A beautiful, extremely hot Saturday was followed by a cool, windy Sunday. As the Sunday afternoon storm rolled across the sky, grey clouds were upon us and there was no place like home. The wind turned cool and refreshing and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to bake.  This nut / seed bread creation is a combination of seeds, almond flour and eggs and reaps many health benefits.

Linseed (flaxseed) is the richest source of plant-based omega 3 essential fatty acids. Sesame seeds are a good source of manganese, cooper, calcium, magnesium, iron and more. Pumpkin seeds  are high in magnesium (heart healthy), zinc (immune support) and is another plant-based omega 3 fat. Sunflower seeds have significant amounts of Vitamin E (anti-inflammatory effects) and phytosterol compounds (which lowers cholesterol). And aside from all these great benefits, this bread is yummy.
