Life changing loaf of bread

This is one of my go-to breakfast foods. It is a gluten-free, no knead loaf of bread, packed with omega 3 fatty acids, fibre, zinc, and magnesium. The recipe below is an adaption of the original, created by the talented Sarah Britton from the blog, My New Roots.

This bread is equally good toasted or un-toasted, try it topped with: scrambled eggs, sliced tomatoes, nut butter, avocado, or with organic butter.
