Recipe: Apple, seed and nut bread {video}

If you didn’t already know, this week (23rd-29th March 2015) is Meat Free Week in the UK and Australia. Cutting down on meat and eating responsibly sourced meat, fish and dairy is something I feel is really important. So, I thought I’d make this week’s recipe a simple vegetarian treat (you can find more meat-free dishes on the blog here) to support the campaign.

Most bread making involves kneading until you break into a sweat, but not this lovely sweet apple and nut bread. It would make a lovely weekend treat – perfect for breakfast, toasted with a pot of tea (or coffee).

Watch the video to see how it’s done!

No knead apple and nut bread

Makes 1 loaf
Preparation time – 10 minutes
Baking time – 50-60 minutes

Ingredients

100g sunflower seeds
100g pumpkin seeds
200g almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts
100g linseed
100g dried apple, chopped into bits
150g milled flaxseeds
4 eggs
80ml oil
1.5 tbsp caraway seeds
1 tsp salt

Equipment

1 loaf tin, lined with baking paper

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180c (fan).
2. Mix all the ingredients together.
3. Pour into baking tin and level out.
4. Bake for 50 minutes/an hour or until it is firmed and sound hollow when hit.
5. Leave to cool completely until you slice it (while warm it’s still very fragile).

Get ahead

This bread keeps very well for several days and is very good toasted.

  1. Lovely healthy bread! But can I use something else to substitute the dried apples which I don’t have right now? will fresh apples do?

    1. Hi Jacqueline, You could use other dried fruits (figs, apricots, raisins…). Fresh apple will be too juicy and will make the bread fall apart. Enjoy!

  2. Hi Rachel! You were linked over at Daring Bakers this month for the gluten-free seed and nut bread challenge. I chose your bread and am glad I did. It was wonderful. Couldn’t find linseed and I think I converted the ingredients correctly for the US because it turned out great! Thanks for posting this!

  3. hello

    gonna try this recipe tomorrow, is there something a substitute for linseeds or can i just leave them out, does that change consistency of the bread?
    Thank you
