Dark Rye Flourless Blender Bread

Another flourless blender bread - this is my favorite! If you enjoy Old-World breads, this has an authentic Eastern European flavor. Amazingly easy and so delicious! It tastes like old fashioned dark rye with a hint of sweetness. This is a true comfort-food, delicious with butter or with my Dairy-Free Coconut Cream Cheese. This bread has major health benefits including:
  1. It is high in protein, Omega-3, vitamin, and low carb nutrition from sprouted rye, chia seeds, and eggs. Yay!
  2. Easy to make! Just blend, pour in pan, and bake. There's no kneading or waiting for yeast to rise.
  3. It's easier to digest because the grain is soaked. So it's free of saponins and indigestible coatings found in all seeds, grains, flours and commercial breads.
  4. High-fiber and flourless, this bread cleans your digestive tract, promoting healthy elimination, while preventing mucoid plaque and belly flab associated with flours. DOUBLE YAY!
  5. The biggest advantage is, the flavor of soaked or sprouted grains is out of this world! Commercial breads made with conventional flours just can't compare in taste.
