Ingredients

Method

1.1 Grease a 1.5-litre (6-cup), 14cm x 24cm loaf pan; line the base and two long sides with baking paper, extending the paper 5cm (2in) over the edge.
2.Place dry ingredients in a large bowl. Place the water, honey and coconut oil in a large jug; stir until dissolved. Pour over dry ingredients; stir to combine. (The mixture will be firm; if it is too stiff, add extra tablespoons of water, one at a time.)
3.Spoon mixture into pan; shape with your hands into a loaf shape (the mixture will mound slightly above the pan rim). Cover surface with plastic wrap; stand at room temperature for 2 hours to allow ingredients to absorb the liquid and set the bread into shape.
4.Preheat oven 200°C.
5.Bake bread for 30 minutes. Invert bread onto a wire rack on an oven tray; peel away lining paper. Return to oven on tray; bake a further 1 hour 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean (cover loosely with foil if bread starts to overbrown during baking). Leave in pan for 3 hours or until completely cool, before slicing.

Psyllium husks are available from vitamin and health food stores. Position the shelf in the oven so the top of the bread sits in the middle of the oven. Like nuts, seeds are packed with healthy unsaturated oils, however these fats when exposed to air, heat and light, will turn rancid over time, resulting in a bitter taste. To retard spoiling, buy from stores with a high turnover and store them in airtight containers in either the fridge or freezer. Ground seeds and nuts will degrade even faster, since the grinding process exposes

the natural oils.

Serve drizzled with honey.

Keep bread refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Slices can be frozen for up to 1 month.
