This is a delicious and simple bread that my son and husband give two thumbs up!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a grinder, place 3 tsps of chia seeds and grind into a powder
Mix the chia meal with 16 tsps of water to form a gel. Allow to set while assembling other ingredients.
In a large bowl, mix together:
2 cups of almond flour
2/3 cup of garbanzo bean flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
Then, add the chia gel and mix together.
Add 1/2 cup of water and mix together to make a dough consistency.
Place into a loaf pan lined with unbleached parchment paper.
Pour olive oil over the top.
Bake for 45 mins.
Allow to cool and enjoy plain or with butter or jelly.

If you can, find a World Food Day event near you and see if you can sign petitions for labelling GMOs. There is a huge march in D.C. tomorrow, too. Everyone has the right to know what they are consuming. Those of us dealing with food allergies, sensitivities, and special needs really must avoid eating these products. Look for soy and corn and dairy ingredients in every product you buy and if it isn't organic, then you will not know if you are consuming genetically altered food, which means that the insecticide is actually within the grain itself. GMOs need to be labelled on products so that consumers will be informed.
