Paleo Hobbit Bread
Is this irrevocably nerdy? I’ve noticed the wave of Paleo “breads” made from nuts and seeds (like Roost’s Savory Pecan Biscuits and Green Kitchen Stories’ Paleo Bread) and they all remind me of hobbit bread. As in, bread that hobbits would make, using nuts and seeds foraged from the forests and eggs laid by treasured hens. My version doesn’t have anything fussy like psyllium husks for binding… because if it’s not at Whole Foods then it’s officially too hard to find (and I’m trying to stay as close to what, um, hobbits might have used as ingredients.
This paleo hobbit bread is made from nut and seeds and a bit of fruit... and would be at home on any table in the Shire.

- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup flax seeds
