Easy fiber flatbreads

These small fiber flatbreads are filled with fiber and healthy fatty acids. They are quick and easy to make, just stir the ingredients together and bake for 10 minutes. Vary with other nuts and seeds; just remember to avoid sunflower seeds, wheat and rye.

Easy fiber flatbread

Recipe:

4 organic, free range eggs from linseed fed hens*
1 dl sesame seeds
1 dl freshly crushed flaxseed
1 dl pumpkin seeds
1 dl oat bran
1 dl ground Brazil nuts
1 teaspoon husk fiber
1 teaspoon baking powder

Mix all the ingredients well together. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. For each bread, scoop a big tablespoon of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them 5 cm apart. This recipe should give about 12 small breads. Bake for 10 minutes, until the breads are firm to the touch. Immediately transfer the breads to a rack to cool.

Serve the breads for example with some scrambled eggs and smoked salmon.

*These eggs have a healthy balance between omega-3 and omega-6. If you are concerned with estrogens in eggs, you can choose to use only the egg white which contain only 6μg total phytoestrogen/100g. If you choose to use the whole egg, this contains 11μg total phytoestrogens/100g egg. In my opinion this is ok. And remember that not all phytoestrogen is bad. Some of them actually have an anti-estrogen effect.

For comparison:

-Salmon has 4μg total phytoestrogens/100g
-Greek yoghurt has 8μg total phytoestrogens/100g
-Roast beef has 7μg total phytoestrogens/100g
-Chicken has 4-6μg total phytoestrogens/100g
-Lamb has 5-10μg total phytoestrogens/100g
-Pork has 4-8 μg total phytoestrogens/100g
-Gouda has 27μg total phytoestrogens/100g
Soy products is in the rage 6028 – 28758 μg total phytoestrogens/100g

These numbers are from the article “Phytoestrogen Content of Foods of animal Origin: Dairy products, eggs, meat, fish, and seafood”. Gunter G. C. Kuhnle et.al. Journal of Agricultural and food chemistry. 2008, 57.
