Nut flour basil and thyme bread

No grains are used in paleo eating, therefore no bread, not of the traditional kind anyway, but here's some made with nut flour. Small portions are all you'll need as it's very energy dense!
You can get adventurous here and use all sorts of different nut flours - just mill the nuts in a food processor and away you go. Also you can use whatever type of herbs you like...different flavours to complement different dishes!
1 cup olive oil
4 eggs
3 cups nut flour (of your choice...I used 1 cup ground almonds, 1 cup ground linseed - for the omage 3 boost - and 1 cup ground hazelnuts)
1 onion (I recommend red, but I didn't have any at the time!)
couple of spoonfuls of seeds - i used pumpkin and sunflower
LOADS of fresh basil and thyme...i used a lot more than is pictured here.

Roughly chop the onion
crack the eggs and throw everything into the food processor
whizz it all up and then stir in the seeds
transfer the mixture to a greased baking tin/tray
sprinkle a few seeds on top
cook in a preheated oven 180-200C for about 45-50 minutes

leave to cool a little before slicing...if you can resist!
