Oh, so good ! Only it's not made w/any flour. I lived in Denmark in the 70"s . Dad was stationed there while in the Army . There was a Hazelnut bush in the back yard, you could just sit and eat them right off the bush. Found this recipe under "The Life- changing Loaf Bread" and modified it a bit

How To Make danish fruit, seed & nut bread

  • 1
    Put salt, psyllium husk powder, dried fruit & rolled oats in bowl . Chop hazelnuts or almonds, add to bowl. Grind rest of seeds and nuts to a flour like consistency & add to bowl. ** You can leave out these two steps and add seeds & nuts whole but I like the texture better when grinned all down , it's more like bread or cake that way
  • 2
    In a separate bowl Whisk together syrup , oil & water. Add to dry ingredients. Mix well till dough becomes thick . You can add water if dough becomes too thick, 1-2 teaspoons at a time.
  • 3
    Spray loaf pan w/ oil. Spread dough out evenly , spray top w/ oil . Let sit out for at least 2 hours before baking or over night.
