Flaxseed bread

Flaxseed bread recipe - gluten free delicious and nutty bread. Super quick to make, full of flavour and good for you ingredients. And it tastes amazing.

Flaxseed bread is a great, nutty, totally delicious and gluten free alternative to a standard bread. It’s really easy to put together and fantastic, well, with everything really. The below sandwich with radishes was really good 🙂

To get all the benefits from flaxseeds it’s best to use them in ground form and this bread is all abound ground flaxseeds. You can buy ground flaxseeds or make your own by just blending them until they reach a flour-like consistency.

Flaxseeds have a pretty neutral taste which makes them great as a smoothie ingredient for example (try the pineapple and orange smoothie) but in this bread, they become nutty and full of flavour. It’s a really good loaf of bread.

  1. Hi Justyna. I have been making this Flaxseed bread recipe for the last months and I love it, although my bread doesn’t really grow… do you have any suggestions ?

  2. I’ve made this recipe many times now, and it usually sticks to the baking tin, even after greasing it, when do you remove your loaf from the baking tin after you take it out of the oven?

    1. Have you tried to line pan with parchment paper with a bit of cornmeal sprinkled on bottom?

  3. Hi. This looks wonderful. What is the calories in total per slice .. and carb percentage etc.
    can’t wait to make this …

    1. Hi Liz, Sorry I don’t track the nutritional values in my recipes. Hope you still like the recipe. Justyna

    2. It’s easy enough- just add all the carbs together minus the fiber and divide by the slices and you will get really close to the count

    3. Just add the recipe via the recipe tab in ‘My Fitness Pal’ (directly from this website) and you get the whole breakdown and when you add how many serves, it gives you the ‘per serve’ breakdown too. It’s great.

  4. Hi – the only way I could get it looking like the photo was to make a double batch- love this bread

    1. Hi Ross. So glad you like the bread. Maybe we are using different size baking tins? Great that you found a way to make the recipe work for you 🙂

    2. That’s the case for me too, length and width of loaf is the same, the height of my loafs is about half of that in the picture.

    1. Hi Ross. I don’t add nutritional analysis to my recipes. Maybe something I should consider.

  5. hi Justyna u saved me , from a long time i’m searching for an easy recipe deserve to try it , and sure will let u know by Monday thx a bunch 🙂

    1. Hi Lucy. I’m so glad the recipe suit your needs. Let me know how the baking went and your thoughts about the recipe. Justyna

      1. Hey Justyna, I try it but without chia seeds cos where I live they have a shortage, but was a perfect bread taste so yummy and tasty with an easy recipe to prepare it, especially cos I’m Hashimoto’s, it’s sate my appetite and satisfy my hunger.
        Thank you, God bless

    1. Hi Anna, I think it’s worth a try. From my tests with gluten-free yeast baking adding yeast will give a boost to the baked product but it won’t be as substantial as it would with gluten baking. But it should be an interesting experiment 🙂 Let me know how it worked out.

  6. This bread came out excellent! My husband told me that I’d “overdone” myself. I’m not a big fan of chunks in my bread, so I put the oats and sunflower seeds in the blender before adding them to the mix. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!

    1. Such a great idea to grind the sunflower seeds and oats. I’m so glad you like the recipe 🙂 Justyna
