Adapted from the healthy chef.

A hearty loaf that is naturally vegan and gluten-free. Perfect to top with avocado, hummus, or nut butters!




  1. Whisk the chia seeds and water together in a bowl. Set aside and let “gel” for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 320 F and line an 8×4  loaf pan with parchment paper.
  3. Place the chia seeds, buckwheat groats, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, olive oil, maple syrup, baking powder and salt together in a food processor.
  4. Blend for 1-2 minutes until everything is well combined.
  5. Spoon the batter evenly into your loaf pan.
  6. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the bread is firm to the touch.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes, before removing the bread from the pan and allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.


Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week.

This bread is great when sliced and then toasted until golden brown!

Make sure to use fresh baking powder, otherwise, the bread won’t rise as much.
