I am a little obsessed with this Completely Seeded Pumpkin Toast. Based on Sarah Britton’s life-changing recipe, this nut-free version also contains a little sneaky pumpkin because, well, I’m a Mum with a fussy kid. Sneaky is my middle name.

I wish I could lay claim to this genius bread but it was introduced by Holistic Nutritionist and all-around awesome blogger Sarah from My New Roots. A few years ago Sarah posted the Life Changing Loaf of Bread and it turns out it is a little life-changing. I am an openly content non-breakfast eater, coffee is my morning master, but this bread in all its wonderful simplicity has me reaching for the toaster before I’ve finished my first jar of brew.

My seeded pumpkin toast is a twist on the original recipe being nut-free and I’ve toasted the seeds and buckwheat to really bring out the flavours of those delicious elements. I’ve also added pumpkin and a touch of onion powder for texture and flavour. I am a firm believer in sneaking in vegetables wherever they can be snuck. The Elf is yet to outgrow her fussy stage – I totally thought she’d be over this by now – and is currently exploring a diet where she only eats white food and occasionally tan.

So, while I have snuck in a vegetable here, it didn’t hit its intended target. She took one look at the seeds and walked away. However, every adult that’s tried this has loved it. So, while my daughter works on her scurvy, us adults are feeling great.

I devour this toast, and I do mean devour, twice toasted (I love to really toast the seeds) with a good smear of chutney and a slice of vegan cheese. I love it with avocado too. If I’m not careful, this bread will make a morning person out of me.

If it being delicious wasn’t reason enough to make this seeded loaf, the no-kneading, no temperamental flours or techniques clinches it for me. This bread doesn’t rise, it doesn’t grow, it has no leavening agents; its size is purely from the bulk of the ingredients. Mix, sit, bake, cool. Done.

Enjoy, x.

NB: For a gluten-free version, simply use gluten-free oats.

I am allergic to psyllium husk. Have you tried this bread with chickpea flour? It looks amazing and I would really like to try it.

IYour site is delightful…iin the past I have steered clear of psyllium husk recipes because they have been gummy. What brand are you using? Whole or milled? I so want to make this bread. Also, I am glad I found your site.
