Bread is bad right? 

Or at least that is what we have been told time and time again! 

Well, here’s a recipe that is not only packed full of nutrients, but AMAZING for your hormones!! 

Last week we discussed the key nutrients to support a healthy ovulation! Check it out here if you missed it! The great news is, this bread contains 5 out of 6 of those nutrients!! 

The best thing is, when you make your own bread, you know exactly what is going into it! And you can literally taste the nutrients in this one. Super satiating, I have this for breakfast or lunch most days, I just swap the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds around depending on where I am at in my cycle. 

You can add in some collagen protein powder if you like, or extra nuts and seeds, but I love to keep it simple, then get creative with the toppings! 



–  ½ cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds
– ½ cup flaxseeds/linseeds
– 1 cup soaked buckwheat groats
– 4 tbsp chia seeds
– 6 tbsp psyllium husks
– Sprinkle sea salt flakes
– 1/3 cup of protein powder
OPTIONAL: ⅓ cup brazil nuts (chopped) or 2 tbsp. unflavoured collagen protein powder. 


  • 1 ¼ cups room temperature water
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup/1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp cold pressed coconut oil (melted)


1. Soak the buckwheat in a bowl covered with filtered water. Leave at room temperature for 2-4 hours. Then drain and rinse well.

2. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl

3. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl with fork or whisk

4. Add wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Mix until well combined and doughy (if too dry – add 1-2 tbsps water)

5. Transfer dough to a lined loaf tin. Leave to sit for minimum of 2 hours

6. When ready, bake at 175C fan bake for 30mins

7. Once the top is brown, remove loaf from the tin. Flip upside down and bake directly on rack for another 20 mins

8. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

If you do make this, be sure to tag me on social media @strengthen.heal.nourish and let me know what topping creations you come up with, I am always looking for more inspo!
