Lazy sunday + grain free baking

We had another lazy day today which was so nice, I love not being rushed, going with the flow and spending quality time with Warren & Sienna. Lately I have been having chia pudding for breakfast and it's so good! It satisfies my porridge craving whilst still being grain free (FYI video on why I've gone grain-free is here if you're wondering).


We spent most of the day reading, playing with her toys, playing hide and seek and dancing. We did also do a bit of mid morning baking. I found a really easy, quick grain free bread recipe and had all the ingredients in the cupboard so decided to give it a go! It turned out delicious and freezes well too, so I waited for it to cool, cut it into slices and put it in the freezer ready to whip out when I fancy some.


Quick & Easy grain free bread.
(adapted from this recipe)
Makes 1 small loaf.

Ingredients:
- 3 eggs, 1 egg white,
- 3 tbsp water,
- 1 cup linseed,
- 1/2 cup of ground almonds/almond flour,
- 1 tsp baking powder,
- 1/2 tsp salt.

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 200C,
2. Beat the eggs and water together in a small bowl,
3. Add all the dry ingredients to a larger bowl and mix together thoroughly,
4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients well,
5. Pour into a small loaf pan and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes,
6. Allow to cool, slice and enjoy!


We also whipped up some muesli bars.. Sienna was such a good helper pouring each ingredient in and she loved putting the processor on and off :) I used this recipe except I left out the flax. They still turned out amazing...


 ..and it's hard to believe they are grain/oat/sugar/sweetener free! They actually taste like delicious flapjacks to me, yum! I will be making these again for sure! Hope you all had a good weekend!
