Today we have a treat for you!

I’m sure you’re familiar with Dave’s Killer Bread?!

Well, our friend Mayi created this recipe and it knocks Dave’s bread out of the park! Not only that but this bread is gluten-free and full of fiber, minerals and protein. And it holds together very well!

Mayi just released her Life is Messy Kitchen…Cook Book Extraordinaire (it’s similar to a cookbook but again knocks most I’ve seen out of the park).

Now, not all the recipes in Mayi’s book are plant-based, and normally I wouldn’t buy a cookbook unless they were, but the majority of these recipe are vegan and gluten-free with A LOT of raw.  I don’t buy a lot of cookbooks these days because I create a lot of recipes and I like my recipes super clean (no weird-o or unhealthy ingredients for us) and not too complicated… AND MAYI IS THE SAME WAY!

I stumbled upon Mayi and her blog: Heart Made Blog about six months ago and instantly fell in love with her (sorry Peter!). Mayi is an artist but also an Entrepreneur who gives advice and supports women business owners via her online courses. You gotta check out some of her Friday Videos… they also leave me feeling inspired:)

And she shares my love for Anthropologie!

But I had no idea she cooked, or was so into it (but most really healthy & successful people do, so no surprise there).

Now, Life is Messy Kitchen

  • Beautiful and fun come to mind.
  • Combines Mayi’s art with gorgeous food photography.
  • Has illustrations of charters you will recognize…Vanilla Ice anyone? :)
  • Contains: Juice, smoothie, bread, waffle, muffin, burger, sauce, salad, tonic, brownie recipe and more.

You can get it now, via digital, pre-order the book out in March or get the bundle which includes both <-Recommended!

*Comes with a coloring book for kids for me.

      Definitely going to try this baby!! :-) however what are buckwheat groats and pumpkin pie spice? I’m in Australia so if anyone can assist with an option that would be fab. Did you leave out nuts as they be too heavy?

      Tiffany :-)

        Yay Tiffany!
        Buckwheat is a super seed, a lot of times refereed to as a grain but it’s gluten free and very easy to digest. You could totally use almonds or hazelnuts like the original recipe calls for but I left them out because I thought it would be heavy for us. Pumpkin pie spice is just a blend of cinnamon,ginger,cloves and nutmeg, but you could easily leave that out or add a little cinnamon. OK so getting buckwheat in Australia…I would check your local health food store. Or you could order them online via vita cost, I know they ship to Australia but not sure the cost.

        Hi Sara!

        So happy you found us. I hope you give this bread a try, we are GF as well and it can be tricky to find bread that tastes good and holds together. This recipe is a good one. If you make it, toast it with almond butter, it’s the best!

      I just made this last night with a few modifications and it is fantastic! I didn’t have pysllium so I just gelled up a four tablespoons of freshly ground flax and used a bit less water. I don’t have a loaf pan so I made hearty muffins and they were the perfect breakfast this morning warmed in the oven with peanut butter and honey. Thank you for the recipe! Even with the changes they are tasty and held together just perfectly!
