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.
