Black Bean Bread with Seeds (Gluten, Egg & Oil Free) On A Cutting Board From Front with Few slices in front

I love baking my own bread! It’s easy, you can add in whatever you feel like and it’s more wallet friendly than buying bread at the store. Especially for me since I don’t eat gluten. I find most gluten free options at the store really boring, expensive and quite dry. So I definitely prefer to bake my own! Using beans has really become a favorite of my, both when baking sweet and savory goods. It makes the baked goods so moist, tender and juicy. It’s such a great alternative to use when you want to bake something healthy, using less fat, but also to make it more nutritious. And trust me, you won’t feel the bean taste at all! This black bean bread is made with oat and sorghum flour and filmjölk (a Swedish kind of butter milk). The filmjölk can be replaced by butter milk or a plain yogurt, just make sure not to use a too thick one. I also added sunflower and flax seeds to make it more filling and to add some more texture to the bread. This bread is really great to eat for breakfast, lunch or afternoon snack. It is both gluten, egg and oil free.

A few tips:

  • Make sure to mix the beans well. There should almost be no lumps or pieces left. This might take a few minutes.
  • I used apple sauce to add some sweetness and also to make it more moist. You can replace the apple sauce with some olive oil if preferred.
  • I used flax and sunflower seeds when making this bread, but you can choose any seeds or nuts you like and prefer.
  • The baking time may way depending on your oven and the thickness of your filmjölk/yoghurt. To check if it’s ready use a tooth pick if it comes out clean.
  • Let the bread cool completely before cutting it, otherwise it might bread or crumble.
  • This bread is good to store in a air tight bag or container for 5-6 days.
  • You can also cut the bread and put it in the freezer.
