– 4 cups whole wheat flour – 2 cups warm water – 1 Tbsp instant yeast – 1/2 Tbsp of sea salt – 1 Tbsp olive oil – 1 Tbsp of agave – 1 Tbsp grounded flaxseeds – 1 Tbsp of sunflower seeds – 1 Tbsp of pumpkin seeds ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can use your mixer by using the dough attachment or you can mix by hand
1. In a large bowl combine: whole wheat flour, instant yeast, salt, olive oil, agave, grounded flaxseeds, sunflower & pumpkin seeds. 2. Add a bit of the water at a time to get the right consistency. You can always add extra flour if you feel that the dough is too wet. It should not stick to the sides of the bowl. Shape into a ball. 3. Grease your Dutch oven pot with olive oil with a brush, making sure you put enough oil on the sides as well so it does not stick. and transfer the dough ball into it.
4. Cover and let rise for 60 minutes. 5. In the meantime, preheat the oven at 390° 6. When the oven is preheated, slash the bread with a knife, making a cut about 1 ½-inch deep or 3 diagonals are also pretty, as you wish ! 7. Bake in the oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes, or until deep golden brown and risen. You can use a toothpick or cake tester to double check if it is properly cooked in the inside. 8. Remove bread from the oven and let it rest in the Dutch oven pot for 10 minutes. 9. Remove from the pot and let it cool down before slicing.
Enjoy this healthy delicious bread, dip it in olive oil or as a sandwich ! 🙂
Combine the flour and baking powder. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Add in the water and whisk. Pour into a hot waffle iron. Should you want to add chocolate powder or chocolate chips or vanilla is also fun, just to change it up
I then also have fun in topping them with fruit, dust icing sugar, powder chocolate in this case, and let’s not forget maple syrup ! Yum !

What in the world is Aquafaba ? it is the viscous water in which chickpeas have been cooked in. Due to its ability to mimic functional properties of egg whites in cooking, aquafaba can be used as a direct replacement for them in muffins and other baked goods. You can freeze the excedent aquafa for other recipes.
2 and 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp poppy seeds
2 and 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup aquafaba
1/3 cup canola
3/4 cup granulated organic sugar
1 cup soya milk
1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp teaspoon pure lemon extract
1 tbsp lemon zest (approximately 2 lemons)
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 12-well regular-size muffin tin with paper cups or spray the wells with oil.
Combine the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Take a separate medium bowl, add the aquafaba and, using a large whisk, whisk it until it is frothy, about 3 minutes. Add the oil slowly while whisking to emulsify. Add the sugar in the same way. Add the milk, vanilla, lemon extract, and zest and whisk well.
Add the flour mixture to the milk mixture and, using a wooden spoon, mix the batter until almost no more flour is visible. Lumps are fine; do not overmix.
Fill the wells about three-quarters full with the batter. Bake the muffins until a toothpick inserted into the muffin in the middle well comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.
Cool the muffins on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before removing them from the tin. Cool the muffins completely before storing in airtight containers, where they will keep for a few days.
Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and mix with a wooden spoon.
In a separate bowl mix together the oil, milk, orange juice, orange zest and vanilla.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Pour into the loaf tin and place in the oven for 45 minutes. It should be starting to turn golden brown on the edges. Test and once it comes out clean, its ready. If it’s not, leave in for a few more minutes.
Make the icing by mixing the icing sugar and orange juice together until it forms a thick icing. Spoon onto the cake once cooled.
Top with some extra orange zest or oranges slices.
