Home made bread is always the best. Happy CNY to you and family!

Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary 8/2/16 15:11

I just bought a brand new, ginormous bag of chia seeds and I was thinking it might take me a year to use them... obviously NOT, because I will be making loaves of this bread! This would be perfect for breakfast or sammies! LOVE it! Cheers, Angie!

Pam 8/2/16 17:23

MASTERCHEFMOM 8/2/16 17:45

Happy Chinese New Year to you Angie ! I am yet to try Chia seeds though I am reading a lot about it's health benefits. The bread looks wholesome and perfectly baked too !

Beautiful looking bread, Angie! I've love putting Chia seeds in my smoothies but haven't ventured much beyond that in using them. I love nuts and seeds in bread. So good!

Adina 9/2/16 08:54

This is on my list, I don't even have to buy anything. I bought some quark about a week ago, I was already thinking that I have to use it before it expires.

Lovely looking loaf

Happy new year to you!

Alida 9/2/16 14:10

Ooh! Love this bread. I always have some Chia seeds in my cupboard. Thanks for this recipe I would like to try it.

Monica 9/2/16 14:58

Love the height of this...and how nice and dense it is. Sometimes you eat a slice of bread and it feels like nothing and you're just not full. This looks really satisfying. And Happy Lunar New Year to you!

motherrimmy 9/2/16 15:47

I can't resist a loaf of fresh bread, especially hearty whole grain breads like this. They toast up so deliciously!

grace 9/2/16 16:17

your loaf looks like a brick, and i mean that in the nicest way possible! what a hearty and nutritious batch of bread. :)

Love that monkey and I love this bread! It would make anyone's new year great!

Regina 11/2/16 05:22

Ohh how I love homemade bread! I've been making so much of it lately. Mine also always turns out quite dense from all the goodies I put it, but anything is better than the white cotton fluff they sell as bread here (in Thailand).

Katerina 11/2/16 10:59

Happy Chinese New Year to you Angie! The bread is perfect especially for breakfast!

mjskit 12/2/16 04:17

Barbara 12/2/16 14:22

I bet that's divine toasted. Love those chia seeds!

Unknown 12/2/16 18:27

Looks wonderful. Is flaxseed flour just ground flax seeds or something else?

Melanie @ Melanie Cooks 12/2/16 20:57

This bread is so hearty and filling - it can be a meal in itself! Protein bread is such a great snack that actually makes you full! Looks delicious!

Christine Ho 13/2/16 14:35

Homemade bread is the best. Healthy and fresh! Happy CNY, Angie !

Debra Eliotseats 13/2/16 15:17

Bread looks amazing. I think I almost have everything to make it. Have to do some modifications for the German cheese. Happy weekend!

Rosita Vargas 13/2/16 17:08

Luce muy delicioso su pan casero y con esta semilla que adoro,abrazos

Vicki Bensinger 13/2/16 19:30

My family prefers I don't make bread but with your recipe I'm sure they'd see the health benefits and gobble it up.

Reeni 14/2/16 01:38

I love all the wonderful things you put in this bread Angie! What a delicious texture - bet it's great toasted! Happy Lunar New Year and a prosperous Year of the Monkey to you too! !!

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies 14/2/16 02:38

I bet this would be fantastic toasted! Yum :)

Roz | La Bella Vita Cucina 14/2/16 04:19

After returning from Germany, I remember hearty breads like this. I could have eaten each loaf alone, Angie. Now in the States, though, where do I find German 'quark' cheese? Happy Chinese New Year too!!!!!

Tania | My Kitchen Stories 14/2/16 09:44

Hi Angie. This bread looks really unusual and so healthy. You really come up with some amazing recipes

Unknown 14/2/16 15:03

Love this healthy and yummy bread. Love addition of healthy chia in it. It looks amazing :)

Geri Saucier 14/2/16 20:15

Happy Chinese New Year:). Great bread recipe. Looks delicious and has a great looking texture. Chia seeds are one of my favorite ingredients to use in cooking.

Cailee 15/2/16 00:08

Oh yum! This loaf looks so good! I love that you added protein to it... but it fells like bread! Such a great balanced way to start the day! Thanks for sharing!

Susan 15/2/16 02:09

Chia is so healthy. I just gave my daughter a vegan recipe for chocolate pudding where chia is used to thicken it. This bread looks delightful, XOXO

Ana Regalado 19/2/16 10:17

Lovely combo of flavours in this bread , Angie !

GiGi Eats Celebrities 20/2/16 00:41

I need to incorporate the CHIA SEEDS in my life!

sweetschoice 20/2/16 11:14

Great receipe that you shared...Thanks for sharing...will try soon...but i love bread with jam.

Marcelle 24/2/16 05:53

Angie, I can't wait to try this bread. It looks so hearty and rich! Wonderful stuff!

Choclette 24/2/16 15:35

This looks wonderful Angie. It looks quite substantial, I thought it was a yeasted bread, but no!

Gaurav Sharma 26/2/16 07:48

This bread seams to fulfill all expectation of any person's nutrition and healthy bread. Thus I like the home bread most because we have the free hand to mold it in either way which we want.

FLAVZCORNER 2/3/16 03:38

Wow, this bread is packed with lots of protein!! Perfect for sandwich after work outs!

The Reader's Tales 30/3/16 17:21
