Sunflower Seeds and Oats bread – Glutenfree and low carb

Sunflower-oats-bread

Yesterday I tried a new recipe for a gluten free and low carb bread. It contains oats, which are low in carbohydrates (12% carb) and can be eaten by most people with gluten intolerance.
This bread does not have any yeast or sourdough and is quick and easy made.

Just mixing all ingredients in a large bowl and then fill it in a well greased baking tin or in a silicon bread mold.

I baked it for 30 min at 175C (347F) and then removed it from the pan. First I thought it will break apart, but it did not.
Then bake further 50 to 60 min till golden brown outside. It should sound hollow when you tap on it.
It tastes great fresh, but also toasted.

The dough is quite soft but no worrySunflower-oats-bread, it will come all together. The water is all absorbed by the oats and Chia seeds.

This is an easy recipe that always works. Classic baked in a bread loaf tin. You can glaze this with a simple sugar-lemon mix or with chocolate or simply covered with a little bit of icing sugar.
