Buckwheat Almond Bread
- 2 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds- optional
- 3/4 T unrefined sea salt
- 2 tsp active yeast
- 1 3/4 cup warm water
- Stir yeast into the warm water and let sit for 5 minutes
- Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and stir in the water and yeast. Add more water if necessary for a dough to form. Gluten free breads have a looser dough than gluten flour breads so do not worry if your dough seems wet. Stir well and let sit for ~1 hour. Bake at 375 for ~40 minutes in a loaf pan. Serve with plenty of grass fed butter.
