Teff Coconut Buckwheat Bread with Chia & Sesame Seeds

A nutrient dense, clean bread which is  gluten free, yeast free, lactose free and phytic acid free. Perfect for people with food allergies and intolerances like coeliac patients and lactose intolerants.

Gluten sensitivity

Nowadays, due to genetic manipulation of grains, these grains contain more gluten. This may be a cause of an increased amount of people having difficulties tolerating grains, something often referred to as ‘gluten sensitivity‘. ‘Gluten sensitives’ often feel better when they limit or eliminate gluten containing grains or when they eliminate only certain gluten containing grains.

The fact is though that there has too little scientific evidence been done to conclude that the cause of these reactions are gluten. These reactions and complaints might as well be caused by something else in gluten containing grains.  My advice is that if you feel better eliminating gluten containing grains, you can keep doing so. 

Celiac disease

Celiac desease is something very different from gluten sensitivity. Celiac patients are very allergic to gluten and simply cannot tolerate them. Gluten destroy the inside of Celiac patients intestine, which can result in severe malnutrition. Celiac patients should eliminate all gluten from their diet.

Phytic acid and yeast free

Some people don’t react well to yeast, as it can cause bloating of intestines. Phytic acids binds minerals and may theoretically cause malnutrition. Both can be found in ‘regular’ bread. The recipe for the bread I am sharing here is phytic acid and yeast free. 

My favorite gluten-free flours

Limiting or eliminating gluten containing grains to your diet means giving up a very convenient, delicious food: bread. Wait, wait, wait … did you think you have to give up bread? You are wrong, girl! I have found a perfect combo of gluten-free flours to make a very healthful, gluten-free bread:

All three of them are of high nutritional value, each of them in a bit different way than the other. They furthermore complement each other in the baking process, increasing the quality and taste of the bread. I therefore prefer to combine these three flours when baking my own gluten-free bread.

Chia seeds for health & binding

I have also added chia seeds to the recipe. Chia seeds are omega 3-rich; a nutrient I see as a base nutrient that you should make sure to incorporate on a daily base. It makes your skin pretty, keeps away wrinkles, gives virility a push in the back and what not. Soaked chia seeds are furthermore one of my favorite natural substitutes for gluten in baked products, as they bind ingredients like gluten do.

  • 2 tbs tartaric acid
  • 20 drops of Stevia
  • 2 tbs chia seeds, 10 minutes soaked in 120 ml warm water
  • 3 tbs sesame seeds (slightly grinded) 
Directions
  • Pre-heat the oven at 85°C/185°F
  • Combine the flours and 4 whole eggs in a kithen machine preferably with kneading hooks and process until the ingredients blend.
  • Add stevia, coconut oil and tartaric and keep kneading for a minute.
  • Now slowly add water while mixing and continue kneading.
  • Put the dough in the greased loaf, coat egg white on top of the dough and top with sesame seeds.
  • Bake the bread at 85°C/185°F for 40 minutes.

Straight after baking the bread should be taken out of the oven to let it cool down. When cooled down, slice off its butt and top it with something healthy like organic nut butter or avocado.

The bread can be kept fresh for about 3 days, wrapped up in paper or a container. You can also store it in your freezer and slice off parts every morning.

  1. Thanks for the recipe will definitely be trying this. Can this be made in a bread maker? Can I use lemon or vinger instead of acid? And what are the correct measurement in table spoons or cups?

  2. I made the Teff Coconut Buckwheat Bread with Chia & Sesame Seeds loaf today! The only slight change I made was substituting the sesame seeds (that go on top of the dough) for sunflower seeds because I ran out of sesame seeds. It is gorgeously delicious… I am ashamed to say I ate it all already!!!! Thanks for such a great recipe.
