Nordic Stone Age Bread ~ #BreadBakers

Nordic Stone Age Bread is a grain-free, Paleo bread made from nuts and seeds.


The Bread Bakers are baking Bread with Seeds this month. I decided to try something a little different and bake a bread that does not contain any flour or leavening agent. Instead it is made with six different kinds of healthy nuts, grains, and seeds, some olive oil, eggs and a little salt - that's it.




Stenalderbrød, which translates to  stone age bread, is packed with healthy seeds and nuts and is super easy to make.  You can pretty much mix it together and have it in the oven in 10 minutes or less. It is also really versatile so you can experiment with a variety of seeds and nuts, and also switch out the olive oil for coconut oil.  In researching this bread I found out that the magic number for the ingredients is 600g, so you can create so many different varieties of the bread by mixing and matching the nuts, seeds, and even dried fruit (each choice needs to weigh 50g until you get to 600g). Next time I am going to try a combination of dried dates, figs, cranberries, pecans, macadamia nuts, and hazelnuts.







This bread is great with some butter spread on it or a little fig jam. As I was nibbling on it I remembered that I had some aged Swiss cheese, so I added that too and it was the perfect combination of sweet and salty. I imagine it would a great addition to a charcuterie board and also delicious toasted.  It can be stored for a week in the fridge, but it also freezes well so making two loaves at once would be a great idea, especially with the holiday season fast approaching.
