I saw this on my google reader the other day, was mildly interested, but then dismissed it as having too many obscure sounding ingredients…until I found myself at the Berkeley Bowl, the great treasure trove of bulk bin goods. With psyillium husk at the reach of my fingertips, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try and make this bread, something claimed to be life-changing.
“Life-Changing Bread” can be a little wordy, although “LCB” sounds like a decent option. I’ve decided that this bread is to be called, now and forever from mine lips, “Crazy Bread.” Because it really is crazy. I felt like a crazy person stirring nuts and oats and many types of seeds in a cake pan (I don’t have a silicon loaf pan as the recipe calls for). How was it to turn into bread?? It looked like bird food + horse food AKA not human food. I didn’t even have coconut oil or ghee on hand so I used grapeseed oil–which is probably blasphemous. Crazy! So much crazy! Okay more crazy happened when I actually baked it, watched it come easily out of the pan as a big huge granola bar-y thing, ate it spread with grapefruit marmalade and almond butter, AND LIKED IT. Let’s not even talk about the crazy that happens because of all the high intensity fiber.
