Hmmm…can you smell the homemade bread already? Our first loaf of bread for this week is Chia Seed Bread!
Chia seeds contain the highest amount of Omega 3 than any other food. Besides omega, these little babies are full of awesome nutrients such as fiber, antioxidants and protein. In other words, they are terribly good for us! So this recipe is going to give you a super nutritious loaf of goodness!
CHIA SEED BREAD
Recipe makes 1 – 1 ½ pound loaf
Makes servings USMetricAdjust Recipe (Help)
- Warm water (110° F/45° C)
- 3 T organic agave
- 2 ¼ t or 1 (.25 ounce) package bread machine yeast
- 1/4 c oil
- 3 c bread flour
- 2 T. chia seeds
- 1 t sea salt
In a one cup measuring cup, add the 3 T. of agave then fill the rest with warm water until it reaches 1 cup of liquid.
*(I use a thermometer to make sure the temp is at 110°).
Pour this liquid into the bread machine pan, add the yeast and blend till smooth. Allow to dissolve and foam, (about 10 minutes). Once that’s dissolved, add the oil and stir slightly. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt and chia seeds, then add to the top of the liquids in the pan. Select Basic or White Bread setting, and press Start.
PRE-MADE bread ingredient bags
As soon as I buy a new bag of flour I mix up portions in freezer bags to use for later. You could do this while you’re waiting for the bread to bake. Then all I have to do on baking day is grab a bag from the freezer, allow to warm up to room temp, then I combine the liquids and start the bread machine!Steps:
- Measure out the dry ingredients (basically the flour & salt). But if you’re making wheat, chia seed, etc., you will combine that with the flour.
- Pour into quart freezer bag, label and freeze.
It will make great sandwiches and a heck of a piece of toast~
yum, i would love to try it.
I hope you do! It’s so easy but nutritionally delicious! Thanks for stopping by and hope you follow for more goodies! ♥ Belle

Love this bread..and so do my young grandsons. I have made it now at least 5 times..I double the chia seeds. It also makes great croutons. Thank you.
Hi Susan and thank you! We love chia seeds around here as well and this recipe is one of my favorites! Although my bread machine bit the dust and I haven’t had a chance to search for a new one. I will have to try the croutons next time I make it. I bet they are a lovely addition to salads and soups! Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I always enjoy connecting with readers. 🖤

Can this chia seed bread be made with bread machine instant yeast? If so do you still mix it with the water and let it set for 10 minutes? This bread sounds delicious and I’m very anxious to try it. Thanks!
Hi Linda! You can definitely use bread machine yeast! I would follow the same steps!

I tried this recipe & it turned out a crumbly mess in the bread machine. I don’t think there was enough liquid. Some of it baked & what did tasted great. I would like to make it again. Can you give me some suggestions as to what might have gone wrong. I used a measuring cup for the water. Next time I will use a measuring jug & may add a bit more water. The agar & chia seeds both soak up a lot of liquid. Thanks Liz
