What’s Good About It?

This gluten free bread is high in fibre and rich in monounsaturated fats thanks to the addition of olive oil.

  2. Place the eggs, olive oil, coconut milk with the sweetener in a food processor and blend until combined.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blend to form a thick batter.
  4. Spoon the batter into the loaf tin and smooth the top. Sprinkle with seeds.
  5. Place the bread in the oven and bake for 40 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then remove and cool on a rack.
