There’s nothing quite like homemade bread. But in all honesty it can sometimes feel like too much effort when you can nip to the shops…but no more! This healthy and clean spelt and seed loaf couldn’t be easier to make; 15 minutes of work, a bit of a wait while it bakes and voila! Healthy delicious bread.
Spelt is a great wheat to eat if you’re eating clean, it’s got more vitamin K in it that whole wheat, a good range of vitamin Bs and contains less calories than wheat. Spelt also contains high protein and fiber content so helps with digestion, and is a much more nutty taste than whole wheat.
Makes one loaf of bread
- 400 g spelt flour
- 12 g yeast powder
- 50 g pumpkin seeds
- 50 g linseeds
- 50 g sunflower seeds
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 50 g warm water
Pre heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Line a bread tin with grease-proof paper, or coat lightly in oil to make sure the mix doesn’t stick.
In a large bowl, add the flour, yeast, salt and seeds. Pour in the water gradually, mixing everything together.
As spelt doesn’t rise like what flour, you don’t need to knead the mixture or leave it to rise – so easy!
Once the ingredients are all mixed together, transfer to the bread tin.
Put in the oven and cook for 60 – 70 minutes.
I like to serve this as a starter at dinner parties with healthy homemade hummus – it’s always a winner!
