Directions:

In the small bowl combine chia seeds and boiling water. Set aside.

In another bowl, combine warm water, sugar and sprinkle with the yeast. Let stand until foamy, 5 to 10 minutes, then stir to combine.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together the flours, potato starch, salt, and seeds. Slowly add the yeast mixture, eggs, chia seeds mixture and honey. Increase the speed to medium-low and knead for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the dough to a loaf pan. Dust the top with a bit of brown rice flour and seeds. Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Bake the bread for 10 minutes and then reduce the heat to 350°F (180°C) and bake until the loaf is golden brown, 30 minutes more.

Let cool completely on wire racks before slicing and serving.
