I love the richness of the pecans and flax seeds. They impart a beautiful nutty flavour to the bread.


  • 1 cup pecans or almonds
  • 1/4 cup golden flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot (sifted)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda (baking soda)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Medium eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 180C
2. Soak flax seeds in 1/3 cup of boiling water for 10 minutes
3. Combine nuts, arrowroot, salt, bicarb soda (baking soda) in a food processor and blend until everything is well combined and nuts are like bread crumbs
4. Put dry mix in a bowl and add soaked flax seeds, apple cider vinegar, eggs and olive oil
5. Combine everything well until there are no lumps
6. Pour mix into a baking tin lined with non stick baking paper or a wonderful silicon bread mould lightly oiled with olive oil
7. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the bread is firm to the touch and bounces back when lightly pressed
8. Remove bread from the oven and turn out onto a cooling rack


This bread can be stored in the fridge wrapped in cling wrap for 4-5 days.

You can make this mix into little savoury cakes or scones by using cupcake papers (supported by a cupcake/muffin baking tray) and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until they spring back when lightly pressed in the middle.

You can also make this recipe into little hamburger rolls - I use large muffin papers and muffin moulds. Put the mix into the papers, spread the mix evenly, and without any fuss you have freshly baked hamburger buns is good.
