Rosemary Flax Bread

A study on women with Breast Cancer conducted at the University of Toronto revealed how beneficial ground flax seeds could be. After 30 days of muffins with 5 teaspoons of ground flax seeds, tumor markers were reduced from 30% to 71%.  That’s pretty impressive. Plant estrogens have a very protective effect on the estrogen receptor sites and also help to lower the levels of circulating estrogens. I try to get in my 5 teaspoons per day and this flax bread is a great way to enjoy it. The rosemary gives it a very earthy taste that goes well with salads and soups. Bon Appetit!

2 cups freshly ground flax seeds

1 cup almond flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 tbsp. dried rosemary (or 2 sprigs of fresh)

Mix these together.

Add the following to the dry mixture after beating for 1 minute:

½ cup water

4 organic eggs

1/3 cup coconut oil

Pour batter into a well-oiled glass bread pan and bake for 20-25 minutes

at 350 F.   Make sure the center is springy to the touch when done.

Serve warm or cold with pasture-raised butter. Enjoy!
