A deliciously moist, grain-free quick bread with poppy, chia seeds, vanilla yogurt and sweet potato. It works great for breakfast or snacks and a great way to use up leftover sweet potato puree.

  • 160 g Ground poppy seeds
  • 30 g Ground chia seeds
  • 20 g Vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 4 Eggs, medium
  • 100 g Sweet potato puree
  • 250 g Vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Almond slices for topping
  1. Line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 175C/350F.
  2. Whisk together the ground poppy seeds, chia seeds, vanilla protein powder, sea salt, baking powder and baking soda in a mixing bowl.
  3. In large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Stir in the sweet potato puree, and vanilla yogurt until well combined. Add the dry ingredients into the wet one and stir until well combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the almond slices on the top of the batter. Bake in the center of hot oven for about 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave it in the pan to cool for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

You are getting more and more inventive Angie. When I stayed in Austria I used to love buying poppy seed breads. They are kind of addictive. Chia bread sounds very exotic to me. Brava!

It looks delicious! Great flavors, I'd love the sweet potato puree in there.

Gina Stanley 25/4/13 23:04

Chia seeds seem to be all the rage, I have to find some. I thought maybe you used purple sweet potato because of the intense color. Looks great with the almonds on top.

I have used chia seeds instead of poppy seeds, but never both together. I will have to try that! I love that you used sweet potato puree in this too.

Gwen 26/4/13 04:48

Fabulous idea! So healthy and sounds delicious. I've not baked with whey protein, I will have to look into it.

Von 28/4/13 09:02

Love the colour of this bread!!! At first I thought this was sesame or charcoal cake....haha. Can you taste much of the sweet potato in the bread?? The addition of sweet potato puree to a bread recipe like this sounds really interesting!!

Anonymous 28/4/13 09:06

I though it was black glutinous bread from the very beginning...
i've been searching the chia seed all around, but unfortunately did't see any of them....
lucky you my friend...
