A seed bread unlike any other

This is not your usual bread. This is neither a yeast bread nor a quick bread. In fact, this bread has no leavener at all.
This is a heavy, dense bread. And that is part of what makes this hearty, rich loaf so wonderful. The other part is what's in it. It's made from all manner of delicious seeds, nuts and grains.
While this bread may not be the best choice for a roast beef sandwich, consider toasting it and smearing it with butter and marmalade, or making crostini to top with smoked salmon and creme fraiche.
Or let it sit on your cheese board alongside a runny brie. And don't even get us started on how well it pairs with peanut butter.
Feel free to play around with the blend of seeds and nuts. But the psyllium seed husks are what hold the loaf together, so don't omit those. They can be found at most natural foods stores. If you can only find ground or powdered, use 3 tablespoons.
By the way, all those nuts and seeds do add up to a hefty helping of fat in this bread. The good news is that these are the good fats, the ones we're told to eat more of. Here's your chance.
