Nuts & Seeds Galore Bread

My mom sent me a recipe of a bread made purely from nuts, seeds and eggs attached with a picture of the one she made. It looked amazing! And so easy to make! I didn't have all the ingredients that the recipe called for so I figured I'd wing it and throw together whatever I had in the pantry, in hopes of creating my own version of this crazy good idea of an incredibly nutrient dense bread!

...It worked! It's definitely not a light and fluffy sandwhich bread, so we cut it thinly and enjoy just one or two slices a day because of how nutrient & calorie dense it is. It's an excellent snack, full of healthy fats and protein!

My husband and I may be biased to my alternatives to otherwise not so nutritious staples like bread. So, we LOVED it. But, full-disclaimer: one client wasn't so keen (...she doesn't like nuts and seeds...) but another client wanted the recipe ASAP. 

Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think! Slap some REAL butter on it, almond butter, honey, or just eat it as is!
