Instructions and steps:
Step 1Combine dry ingredients in a silicone or greased non-stick loaf tin. Stir well with a fork.
Step 2Add water and oil, and mix until the ingredients are well combined and dough is very thick. Let dough sit for at least 2 hours or overnight. Dough is ready to be baked when solid.
Step 3Preheat oven to 175ºC. Bake loaf for 20 minutes, then remove from the tin and bake directly on oven rack for 30–40 minutes, until loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
Step 4Allow the baked loaf to cool completely before slicing.
Walnut and almond bread: Replace half the almonds with walnut pieces.
Gluten-free seed and nut bread: Swap rolled oats for quinoa flakes.
Fruit and nut bread: Replace chia seeds with 1 tablespoon each sultanas, dried cranberries and finely chopped dates.
Thin, toasted slices make a great alternative to crackers.
