Dry ingredients

  • 100g (3.5oz) Brown rice flour
  • 100g (3.5oz) Ground linseed (flax)
  • 100g (3.5oz) Teff flour
  • 95g (3.4oz) Corn starch, or 120g (4.2oz) Potato Starch or 160g (5.6oz) Tapioca Flour
  • 50g (1.8oz) Ground chia (chia flour)
  • 40g (1.4oz) Gluten free oat flour OR Coconut flour
  • 25g (0.9oz) Sunflower seeds
  • 25g (0.9oz) Linseed (Flax seed)
  • 1 teaspoon Instant yeast (or 1tsp bicarbonate of soda + 1.5tsp Cream of tartar)
  • 1 pinch Salt

Wet ingredients

  • 50ml (1.8fl.oz) Oil of choice (e.g., Grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, canola oil)
  • 1 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Pear or apple, pureed (or 1/2 cup apple sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup/ rice bran syrup/ honey or 1 tsp stevia (optional)
  • 350ml Carbonated water (or still water)


Step 1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (fan forced).
Step 2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Step 3. In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients.
Step 4. If using yeast, heat the wet mixture over stove top or in the microwave until warm. The liquid should not be too hot to touch. There is no need to heat the mixture if using soda and tartar.
Step 5. Gradually add the dry flour blend to the wet mixture, stirring until well mixed. A hand mixer can also be used. The mixture will gradually thicken and become sticky due to the action of the chia and flax.
Step 6. Pour the mixture into a lined loaf tin. If using yeast, place the tin in a warm covered spot for 45 minutes to rise. I like to heat the empty microwave for 20 seconds before placing the loaf inside. (Alternatively if you are using soda and tartar, you can place the loaf directly into the preheated oven without the rising stage). After the loaf has risen, place in the pre-heated oven for approximately one hour or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Step 7. Remove from the oven and let sit covered with a tea towel for 15 minutes before turning out of tin. Slice when cool.


For conversion to another food processor, Speed 1 is low speed and Speed 10 is the highest.

This bread is great served as an open sandwich with your favourite cold meat and salad on top.
