So, I found a pretty good recipe for bread with coconut flour and flax seed. Seems to be GAPS legal, too, unless I'm missing something obvious. Which wouldn't be unusual these days.

If I could get more than 3 hours of sleep at a time, that would help. Sigh...

Remember though, folks, no bread stuffs have passed these lips in probably over a year. So take my recommendation with a grain of salt if you're expecting "real" bread.

Now, of course, I couldn't just follow the recipe. I had some chia seed I wanted to try (thanks to for sending a sample), so I subbed that for flax. Flax doesn't seem to like me much anyway...

I poured some boiling water on the chia to activate its gel-ocity, and other than that, followed the recipe. It was kind of hard to incorporate everything because the chia was gloppy, but I just used a fork and stirred like I meant it. I'm too lazy to clean my food processor or mixer, so I just did it by hand.

It actually turned out pretty good!! It stuck to the pan a little, but that is about my only complaint. (That and I'm wondering if the overload of chia is what is causing an overload of air bubbles in the plumbing, if you know what I mean... but totally worth it. Plus, I can always blame it on the baby, right?)

I ate it plain with tons of butter. After so long without anything bread-like, it made me wonder what took me so long?

I see possibilities with a burger, maybe some jam or something (no not at the same time. ick.).

Just had to share my good fortune :)
