  • 1 cup blanched almond meal
  • 1 ¼ cup buckwheat flour
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp psyllium husk
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 zucchinis, grated
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds


  1. In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, buckwheat flour, chia seeds, psyllium husk, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a small bowl combine the maple syrup and vinegar with 375ml room temperature water.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry and stir with a wooden spoon.
  4. Place grated zucchini over a sieve and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  5. Add in the zucchini and seeds to the dough and continue to stir until a homogenous wet dough forms. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and allow it to sit on the counter for 1 hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180℃ and line a small loaf tin with baking paper.
  7. Scoop the dough into the tin and smooth out. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt, cumin seeds and some extra seeds if you wish. Bake in the oven for 70 minutes or until golden brown and a skewer inserted comes out clean. Check every 15 minutes to ensure it doesn’t brown too much, and if so, place a sheet of foil on top.
  8. Leave to cool in the tin for ten minutes before turning out onto a wire rack and allowing to cool completely.
