Nordic Nut Bread Recipe – Paleo Bread Recipe ( Stone Age Bread Recipe or in Danish Stenalder Brød )

In Denmark, we eat a lot of Rye bread.  I had it everyday growing up in Stege for either breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  Just like Rye bread the Nordic Nut Bread (sometimes called Stone Age Bread or Paleo Bread ) is very filling compared to white bread. If you like rye bread then you will enjoy this Nordic Nut Bread for sure.  Plus it healthy!

Making Nordic Nut Bread is very easy to make. What is interesting about the Nordic Nut Bread is that it does not include any flour or yeast.   So you won’t have to wait for the dough to rise. If you have extra seeds to set aside for baking then you can prepare some of the ingredients in advance. The preparation time is about 15 minutes. 

 ♥ Ingredients ♥
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) walnuts, chopped
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) almonds, chopped
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) flax seeds
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) poppy seeds
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) sunflower seeds
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) sesame seeds
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 (1 dl) cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 eggs

Directions:
  1. Chop the bigger nuts (almonds and walnuts) before you mix them with the rest of the nuts.
  2. Mix the nuts and seeds with salt, oil and 5 eggs.
  3. Line baking form with baking paper. Spray the form with oil or butter it.
  4. Place the dough into the baking form.
  5. Bake it at 350F for approx. 1 hour.
  6. Let it cool before you slice it.

Serve plain or with butter, cheese or cream cheese.

The only thing is nuts can be expensive and there are a lot of nuts to gather to make this bread! Because this bread includes a variety of seeds, you can get creative and try various other seeds that are not listed below. This is great if you are allergic to certain seeds.  We were thinking peanuts or pine nuts might be fun to substitute in the future. Enjoy!

Parmesan Bacon Potato Stacks for Easter Brunch

We are getting ready for Easter Brunch. These individual potato stacks make an impressive presentation but are quite simple to prepare.  So these potato stacks are going to be front and center. This goes great with a roast, a ham or a steak.
So let’s put the mandolin to good use!

  • Makes about 9 potato stacks
  • Ingredients.
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan (or any cheese you like)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of melted butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 fresh garlic, smashed or 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • chopped chives (or any herbs you enjoy)
  • crumbled bacon
  1. Buy potatoes that are in equal size and dimension to the muffin pan.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190C).
  3. Butter muffin pan or muffin cups and set aside.
  4. Cut the 4 potatoes into thin slices with either a knife or madoline slicer.
  5. Place thinly sliced potatoes into a medium-large bowl. Add melted butter, parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. We enjoy fresh garlic but you can use garlic powder too. Toss potato slices in the bowl to coat evenly.
  6. Layer the potato slices into stacks and place into the prepared muffin pan.
  7. Bake until the edges and tops are golden brown and the centers are tender. It took us about 55 minutes to bake the potato stacks. 
  8. While the potato stacks are baking in the oven, prepare the crumbled bacon
  9. When ready, remove the muffin pan from the oven and let the potato stacks rest for 5 minutes
  10. Carefully remove the potato stacks with a small offset spatula and onto a plate
  11. Garnish with additional parmesan cheese, crumbled bacon, chives.  Add freshly ground pepper and salt to taste.
  12. Serve immediately
