Chia Seed Bread Method
1

Preheat the oven to 170C and grease and line 1 or 2 loaf tins.

2

Sift all dry ingredients together into a bowl.

3

Add the water and eggs together into a bowl or measuring jug and whisk together with a fork.

4

Stir through the chia seeds and water mix to see if it has gelled and thickened.

5

Now add all the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk together with a fork.

6

If the mixture is too wet (this can happen if your eggs are large) just whisk though 1 Tbsp of almond meal and arrowroot or tapioca flour until you reach your desired consistency.

7

Once ready pour into a lined loaf tin and bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Big Breaky Method
8

When the bread has about 10- 15 minutes remaining (or you can make the bread the day before for ease), pop the sausages onto a baking tray and prick them a couple of times each with a sharp knife. Put them in the oven and allow them to cook until golden.

9

When the bread is ready remove from the oven and allow to cool, you can turn the sausages now if needed to.

10

When the sausages are done, remove them and place them onto a plate to rest, then pop the bacon rashers onto the same tray and allow to cook until crispy in the oven (or however you desire).

11

While the bacon is cooking, slice the bread up.

12

Heat a frying pan on medium heat and put some butter or coconut oil in the pan to heat.

13

Place your sliced bread onto the pan to crisp up and make golden on each side.

14

The bacon should be ready now, so just check it. If it is, remove from the oven.

15

Once the bread is golden on each side turn the heat off and allow it to soak up any leftover butter.

16

Now plate up, pop the greens onto the plate along with the sausages, bacon (any additional veggies if chosen) and the toasted chia seed bread. We topped our bread with the pesto and we used cultured butter, if you don’t have cultured butter just use normal butter. The amounts may vary depending on how hungry you are, so listen to your body.
