Pumpkin Seed Protein Bread (Low-Carb & Gluten-Free)
Nutritionally speaking (and in terms of flavor too), pumpkin seeds have a lot going for them.
They are rich in zinc, vitamin E (a powerful anti-oxidant), iron, magnesium, fiber, phytosterols, and they pack a good old fashioned punch of protein POW! They’re also delicious and very versatile in the kitchen.
You can use pumpkin seeds as a protein cereal topping, you can blend them into a protein shake, you can encase them in dark chocolate for a healthy chocolate bar (evidence here), and you can also use them as ‘flour’ to make things like this rustic loaf of protein bread.
Protein bread, unlike regular bread, is ridiculously easy to master. You just blend your ingredients together and bake the batter in a nonstick (ideally silicone) pan. You don’t need to knead anything. You don’t need to led anything rise. You just blend and bake. Simple, right? Check this out:
