Linseed also known as flaxseed, is one of the most potent sources of omega 3 essential fatty acids found in nature. It has a huge amount of health benefits and because it is derived from a plant source, it is ideal for those on a vegetarian and/or vegan diet.

This loaf recipe is not only good for you but also delicious. My 8 and 11 year old boys love this bread so much that half the loaf is consumed before it has the chance to cool down!
