Mill almonds 25 sec / speed 6 and set aside.
Place 250g of luke warm water and yeast into mixing bowl and heat for 1 min / 37C / speed 1. (use luke warm water as it will remain consistant in winter or summer, room temp. and water from taps vary in temp. depending on the weather.)
Add maple syrup (to help create carbon dioxide which makes a lighter and airy texture) and oil. Mix for another 2 mins / 37C / speed 1.
Add chia seeds with soaking liquid, and the rest of the ingredients mix for 20secs / speed 5.
Pour mixture into prepared loaf tin and top it off with some sesame or poppy seeds. Bake for 15mins. Decrease temperature to 190C, bake for a further 30 mins. Remove from loaf tin, decrease temperature to 150C and bake for a further 20 mins or golden brown.

1. Do not mistake Tapioca flour for Arrowroot as they are from different plants. Quantities used will affect results with differences in taste, texture, and crumb.
2. Soaking chia seeds, you can change the quantity of water to 60g, there will be enough moisture in the bread to bake, with less water you can form a Batard with generous spinkling of extra brown rice flour on your work place.
3. the longer you bake, the crusts get thicker as it dries out, inside will still be moist, use a cake tester to test the drieness inside.
