Our gut-friendly recipe also uses sourdough as it’s easy on the gut. Although made using a fermented starter, much of the beneficial bacteria is lost during the baking process. However, because fermentation starts to break down the flour proteins it’s a much easier bread to digest.

  • stale sourdough 1 slice, torn into chunks
  • mixed seeds 50g
  • cumin seeds 1 tsp
  • coriander seeds 1 tsp
