Healthier Chia bread

This bread is full of healthy ingredients and is so nutritionally well-balanced that it truly can be called a super bread. The bread is rich in fibre and easily digested proteins. Additionally it contains Omega-3 and calcium from Chia seeds. The bread is free from egg, milk, gluten, yeast, sugar and soy. A slice of bread contains only 1.5 g carbohydrates, and tastes so similar to ordinary bread that it is almost too good to be true.
