Press the dough into the cookie sheet, or use a rolling pin until it is all fairly even. It should only take up a half of a cookie sheet! Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Make sure you don’t over do them! They burn very easily!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Protein Bread Recipe

March 10 2014

That's right - this recipe is made with absolutely no grains whatsoever, and is filled with essential fatty acids and protein. You can eat this bread as a "breakfast treat" just as one would eat a pastry, croissant, or pound cake in Europe at a cafe. This can of course be a snack or light lunch too, as well a dessert (maybe with a chocolate hazelnut spread) or even almond butter as shown in the picture above. This bread is just so versatile, and a really excellent option for those avoiding grains that miss bread/cake. It is also incredibly nutritious. The basis of the "flour" in this recipe is ground flaxseed. Flaxseed is packed with fiber - I'm talking two grams per TABLESPOON, and there's an entire cup in here. This fiber is responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effects of flax. Fiber in general helps stabilize blood sugar, and of course helps your intestines and regularity. Flax is also rich in alpha linolenic acid (ALA). This is an Omega-3 fatty acid, which plays a huge role in fighting inflammation in our bodies. Evidence shows that inflammation is one of the causes of many chronic diseases including heart disease, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, and even some cancers. Inflammation can get worse if you don't have enough Omega-3 intake!

Source Organic Whey Chocolate Protein Bread

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 cup ground flax
  • 3/4 cup Source Organic protein powder
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (low glycemic!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (for rising)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (I used cow's milk, you can use almond, rice, hemp, coconut, etc.)

Mix everything together either by hand or in a blender/food processor. The mixture will be very liquid like - not at all like dough! Don't worry. That's how ours came out too, because you need that much milk and liquid consistency for the moist factor. Flax meal can be very grainy; you need the moisture so your throat doesn't get dry. Grease a bread/loaf pan with coconut oil. Pour your mixture into the pan, and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. At 25 minutes, take it out and stick a fork down the very center to test if it's cooked all the way through. If there's no residue on the fork, you should be good to go, but if it still seems too "soft" bake for about 10 minutes longer.

Thanks to our friend Organic Olivia for the recipe!
