A High Protein Hemp Seed Bread

I love to use this mug-in-a-muffin, hearty seed bread for almond butter and jelly sandwiches. It also works well slathered in homemade mayo, with pasture raised turkey & avocado, or use it as a breakfast biscuit and fill this sucker with a sausage patty and egg.

This simple Hemp Seed Paleo Bread is packed with protein from Hemp Seeds (7 grams protein!), Chia Seeds (2 grams protein!), and 1 Egg (6 grams protein!) That means there are 15 grams of protein per serving of this bread, then add a high protein meat to it, and you are off to the races! I hope you enjoy this Hearty Grain-free Sandwich Bread too!

This recipe makes 2 slices of bread at a time, quick and easy.

Recipe Notes

I like to use this bread for almond butter and jelly sandwiches.

It also works well for turkey sandwiches, or used as a breakfast biscuit with sausage and egg.

I have not tested this recipe with flax seed yet, but assume you can use 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seed in place of chia seed.
