  • 500 grams of chestnut flour
  • 70 g sunflower seeds
  • 150 grams of walnuts
  • 140 grams of raisins
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp ghee or pasture butter
  • fresh rosemary


Allow a little more time for this recipe.

  • Soak the nuts and sunflower seeds in water for 4-5 hours. Then strain the water. Also, soak the raisins – for 1.5 hours in 700-800 ml of water. Important: keep the raisin water after straining.
  • Preheat the oven to approx. 175 degrees. Grease a loaf tin with ghee or pasture butter.
  • Put the chestnut flour in a mixing bowl and gradually add the raisin water and mix to form a smooth batter.
    Then add honey and salt as needed.
  • Remove the leaves from 1-2 rosemary and chop them finely. Mix into the batter to taste.
  • Also, chop walnuts and sunflower seeds and mix them with the raisins. Stir 2/3 of the mixture into the batter. Reserve about 1/3 of the mixture. Then pour the batter into the baking pan.
  • Bake bread at 175 degrees for 20 minutes. Then spread the rest of the raisin-nut mixture on the bread.
  • Drizzle ghee or melted butter on top. Then put it in the oven for another 30 minutes.
