Ingredients for almond bread or hazelnut bread
- 400 g almond flour or hazelnut flour
- 4 eggs
- 1½ tsp baking soda or bicarbonate of soda (only add just before putting in oven)
- 1 tsp unrefined sea salt
- large dash of olive oil (Verde Salud) or extra virgin coconut oil (Amanprana)
- approx. 150 ml yoghurt/buttermilk/oat milk/rice milk
- 4 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 30 g coconut fibres (Amanprana)
Preparation of almond bread or hazelnut breadMix all of the ingredients in a food processor. Put mixture into a well greased baking tin with parchment paper on the bottom. Bake in the oven for about fifty minutes at 150 degrees. Remove the parchment paper immediately and allow the bread to cool off on the oven tray. Store this bread in the fridge. Do not wrap in plastic as it will quickly go soft. Only cut the bread just as you have taken it out of the fridge.
Tip from Rineke:
Bread gets its structure from gluten. Gluten-free bread such as this hazelnut bread must have a binding agent to give it a bread-like structure. Eggs are a very effective binding agent and Amanprana coconut fibre is a great way of adding extra fibre. Add about 30 g coconut fibre per loaf. Recipe from the cookbook “Weten van (h)eerlijk eten” (Knowing how to eat well) by R.Dijkinga, orthomolecular therapist and naturopath.
Rineke Dijkinga is specialist in orthomolecular medicine and naturotherapy and also knows an extraordinary amount about nutrition. She is firmly convinced of the beneficial effects of (organic) foods and believes that herbs and spices play a major role in our energy levels, our mood and our weight. To her, delicious food are one and the same thing. Here at Amanprana we have had the opportunity to create and collect various recipes together with Rineke Dijkinga, author of "Alles draait om je hormone" (It's All About Your Hormones), "Weten van (h)eerlijk eten 1 & 2" (What You Need to Know About Fair Food) and Weetjes over (h)eerlijk eten (Fair Food, the Facts). Her main aims are to highlight how important herbs and spices are, that we should opt for organic food and that we should focus on the preventative in prevention.
