Tahini Bread

Tahini Bread is a totally AMAZING fluffy bread that is gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, sugar-free, yeast-free AND nut-free! You’ll love this nutritious, delicious, easily-digestible baked good—and it’ll make your home smell amazing.


 2 tablespoons whole chia seeds

1 teaspoon baking powder                                                       

1/2 teaspoon baking soda                                              

1 cup orange lentil flour

2 teaspoons vinegar

6 tablespoons raw tahini

2 tablespoons of silan (Date syrup)

Salt to taste

Various seeds and nuts to garnish the top


  1. Preheat the oven to 375-degree. In a bowl, mix chia seeds with 1/4 cup water and set aside 3-4 minutes. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl mix baking powder, baking soda, lentil flour and salt. 

  3. Add vinegar, tahini, silan, and ⅓ cup of water, chia mixture, and mix well. The batter will be thick and not completely smooth. The vinegar and baking soda create a bubbly reaction, which is key to fluffy bread, so it’s important not to let the batter sit too long.

  4. Pour the batter into a prepared loaf pan and sprinkle the top with whatever you want. I used flax, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds.

  5. Immediately insert the pan into the hot oven. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted into the middle of the loaf, comes out clean. Remove bread from the pan and allow to cool on a wire rack. Do not be tempted to snack. Enjoy this bread with an appetite. After two hours, the bread should be cool and be firm enough to slice.
