  1. Prep the Oats: Begin by soaking the oat flakes in 170 milliliters of water. Let them sit for about 10 minutes until the oats have absorbed most of the water and softened.
  2. Blend the Beans: In a food processor, blend the white beans with half of the olive oil (30 milliliters) until you achieve a smooth paste. This bean paste will act as a binding agent for the bread.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the sunflower seeds, chopped peanuts, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, chopped walnuts, chopped hazelnuts, psyllium husk powder, and salt. Stir well to distribute the ingredients evenly.
  4. Combine: Add the soaked oat flakes and bean paste to the bowl of dry ingredients. Pour in the remaining 30 milliliters of olive oil. Mix thoroughly until all components are well incorporated. The dough should be sticky and dense.
  5. Shape the Bread: Transfer the dough to a lined or greased loaf pan. Press down firmly to ensure the dough is compact and evenly distributed in the pan.
  6. Let It Rest: Allow the dough to rest in the pan for at least 30 minutes. This resting period helps the psyllium husk powder to absorb moisture and bind the ingredients together.
  7. Bake: Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the loaf pan in the oven and bake for approximately 60 minutes, or until the bread is firm and has a golden crust.
  8. Cool: After baking, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. This step is crucial for the bread to set properly.
  9. Serve: Slice the bread once it has cooled down. Enjoy it as is, or toast it lightly for a warm, nutty flavor.
