I seriously love bread, nearly as much as I love dark chocolate. This gluten free, yeast free, dairy free, vegan, paleo bread has quickly become one of my favorites. Crunchy on the outside, and chewy on the inside—this one hits all the high notes and more!

Ingredients : 

1 cup Buckwheat Flour
1/3 Cup Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Flax and Chia Seed blend (Carrington Farms) (to sprinkle on top)
1 1/2 tsp Xanthin Gum (Bob’s Red Mill)
1/4 tsp salt ( to taste)
1-2 Tbsp of Cinnamon (to taste)
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 Cup Coconut or Almond Milk
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
3 Tbsp Melted Coconut Oil (may have a little extra to brush the top of the bread before baking)

Directions : 

  • Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, add all dry ingredients and whisk together to evenly distribute.
  • Add wet ingredients. Mix just to the point of well combined but do not overtax as the bread will become too dense. 
  • Scoop dough out of bowl and shape into a loaf.
  • Place on a non-greased baking sheet. If desired brush the top with remaining coconut oil and sprinkle with chia/flax seed. 
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes, then rotate the pan and cook for another 10-15 minutes. (Bread is done when tester is clean ) Bread will form a brown crust and be firm. Allow cooling for approximately 15 minutes before slicing. Once completely cool, bread may be frozen.

Kris says:
After having children, I found it harder and harder to make time for myself and I found that without something holding me accountable, I wouldn’t take the time I needed to do something for myself. Then I found bike racing. I did my first 31 mile bike race after baby #1, my second half mararthon after baby #2, and my first triathlon after baby #3.
