Our Favourite Seaweed Bread Recipes
Healthy seaweed bread recipes
Adding seaweed to your homemade loaf couldn't be simpler. And whether it's Dulse or Kombu, the health properties in the form of minerals and nutrients found in seaweed make a strong case for adding some to your dough. So in celebration of Real Bread Week we've gathered our best seaweed bread recipes using a variety of Mara's hand-harvested flakes for you to enjoy.
Mara® Seaweed is the ultimate superfood. It's high in iodine, fibre, potassium and magnesium. Our seaweed is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans, with the presence of vitamin B12 being particularly appealing to those on a vegan diet who might otherwise lack it. Additionally, it is naturally gluten free, low in sugar, fat and calories.
A well-rounded loaf
If the numerous health benefits of using seaweed in your bread haven't swayed you, perhaps knowing it aids weight loss will. Scientists have discovered an encouraging link between seaweed and the reduction of fat absorption, so snacking on seaweed bread could be the answer to weight control.

You forgot the hundreds of Irish traditional seaweed breads that there are out there, nearly one for every locality. They are the best seaweed breads and I’ve even had. And they are all vegan and made with the best seaweed only collected a few metres away in the pure clean Irish Atlantic sea. Can’t wait to return to Ireland to try more.
