How to prepare the chia seed bread recipe

  1. First dissolve the yeast in warm water. Then add the oil and then the flour little by little together with the chia seeds. Away from the yeast, add the salt and finish working the dough, first with a spoon and then by hand, on the pastry board.
  2. Form a loaf and leave it to rise in a bowl covered with cling film for 2-3 hours.
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts and form balls, working them briefly with your hands. As they are ready, place them to rise on a baking tray lined with baking paper and then again in the oven with the light on. It will take a couple of hours.
  4. Then brush the surface of the sandwiches with a little milk (even vegetable or water) and sprinkle them with the chia seeds.
  5. Cook at 200°C for 10 minutes then lower the temperature to 180°C and continue for another 15 minutes . Let them cool on a rack before serving.

Among the other recipes with chia seeds we recommend you try chia pudding : it is truly unique and excellent if you are looking for a light dessert.
