    What’s the carbs in this per slice ..?

    That depends on how thin or thick your slices are. The default recipe makes 20 servings. Therefore, if you get 20 slices out of your loaf then 1 is a serving.

    I love this bread, but I'm curious if the nuts' nutritional profile is changed by being baked. Are they still as healthy? I look forward to eating a thin slice every day, and since David Perlmutter also has a recipe for it in his book, Brain Wash, I want to think it's a good thing. Any thoughts? Also, I did cut the amount of salt and sometimes add 1 Tbs. each anise and fennel seeds.

    They have virtually the same nutritional content. Roasting improves the flavor!

    Is it okay to substitute Chia seeds for flax seeds and if so would it be the same quantity?

    Hi Earle, we have not tested this substitute, unfortunately. It should work to swap out the flax seeds for chia with a 1:1 ratio, however, as we've never tried it, we cannot be certain. Let us know how it goes if you try it out!

    My first time so I cannot compare but it was delicious.

    Good recipe. Just made this the second time. It's expensive but it's easy to cut thin so lasts a long time. The only issue is that 2 teaspoons of salt is far too much and spoils it a bit. I gave some to my partner who piles too much salt on everything and even he said it was too salty.
