Flour-Free Toast

Talk about an easy, delicious, no-fuss breakfast. If you didn’t know already, let me inform you that Ezekiel products are in-fact compliant with BLE. They do not contain flour, but are made of sprouted grains. Some don’t like it, some are triggered by it and don’t eat it, I have neither problem. You can find Ezekiel bread in most natural food stores and normal grocery stores, often in the freezer section or gluten-free section. (Remember – flour free and gluten free are NOT the same thing, we don’t eat any flour here, not even gluten-free flour, because of how it hits our brains).

If you aren’t into Ezekiel bread, you can also roast rounds of sweet potato to make sweet potato “toast” I made both of these kinds of toast and I can honestly say I prefer the sweet potato rounds to the Ezekiel toast, it is just so warm and sweet potato-y and soft and decadent and delicious. Try both and see what you think! (If you are on maintenance, you could even do one of each!)

Flour Free Toast

  • Servings: Makes 1 Serving
  • Print

Each Serving Contains:

  • 1 Grain Serving
  • 1 Protein Serving
  • 1 Fruit Serving

Ingredients

Grain Serving

Choose ONE of the following options for the “toast”

  • 1 slice Ezekiel Bread (flourless) (1 grain serving)
  • 4 oz roasted sweet potato “toast” – 2 rounds about the size of a rice cake (1 grain serving)

Protein Serving

  • 2 oz nut butter (try almond, peanut, cashew, or sunflower butter)

Fruit Serving

  • 6 oz sliced banana, apple, or berries

Condiments & Spices

  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

Maintenance Modifications

  • Grain Additions: Use 2 slices of Ezekiel toast or 6 oz of sweet potato toast.
  • Protein Additions: Increase nut butter, add nuts or seeds, or supplement with a serving of plant-based milk as an unsweetened latte. 🙂 (this is my new habit right now for getting my other maintenance protein)
  • Fat Additions: Increase nuts or nut butter, add coconut flakes, or brush sweet potato generously with coconut oil before baking.

Directions

  1. If using Ezekiel bread as your grain, I think you can probably figure out what to do. Toast, top, and enjoy.
  2. If using sweet potato “toast”, bake sweet potato rounds at 400 degrees on parchment paper for 25-30 minutes. Brush with a small amount of coconut oil (optional) and sprinkle with cinnamon before baking. Top and enjoy.

  2. Hi Katie,
    Would a bread made only out of soaked and fermented buckwheat groats be BLE compliant?
    The groats need to be blended with water, but the batter does not need to be completely smooth, I usually left some groats almost intact.

    I used to bake it quite regularly, using a similar recipe to this one http://www.nutriplanet.org/2016/03/fermented-buckwheat-bread-2/

     
  3. Had this for breakfast. I love the bread!! I felt like I was cheating!! Lol Yummy

     
  4. Hi, Katie. I have trouble printing your recipes. There is always a little bit of text spilling onto the next page…it’s a waste of paper! Would you consider reformatting them for printing???
    Thank you.

    • Hmmm, unfortunately Christine I know nothing about the tech side of things, I just use a WordPress template. Sorry. Can you just tell your printer to not print the second page? I know that’s annoying but without paying somebody money to handle the tech side of my website (which I am not going to do because this site is just a labour of love and not a business venture) I don’t know how to fix it.

       
  5. Hi! Are nut butters measured by weight? 2 ounces was about 4 tablespoons for me, and that seems like a ridiculous amount of fat? When nut butters are used as a fat it’s .5 ounces, is using 2 ounces for breakfast recommended?
    Thanks!

     
    • Yes, 2 oz by weight. 4 tablespoons sounds right. It is counted as a protein (2 oz) or a fat (0.5 oz) but you’re right, it is a calorically dense choice so some people try not to do it every day on weight loss. I personally eat 3 oz nuts every single morning on maintenance with no issues.

       
  6. Hi Can you use the ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread?

     
  7. I am a Celiac and I use Sprouted For Life GF sprouted bread, it is also flour free using sprouted grains, but it only use grains that are gluten free, which Ezekiel does not. Sprouted for Life also makes a Sprouted corn Tortilla which is also gluten free, and none of their products contain any flour or sugar only sprouted grains I’m surprised I don’t see them on more BLE lists.

    What sprout is in the Ezekiel bread? And what is groups? Ty

     
  9. Hi Katie
    If you are having Ezekiel bread for lunch or dinner on maintainence would that be one slice or two?

     
    • With maintenance you kind of have to navigate that yourself. You can look at the food plan or faq to find the official quantities. I personally eat two.

       
  10. hi. started the ble 3 weeks ago and would love to try the Ezekiel but im allowed 1 oz of grain.. isn’t a slice of the bread more?
