Making homemade bread has never been easier. Try baking this delicious yeast free spelt bread!
I’ve been experimenting with spelt flour recently and I’ve discovered how easy it is to make homemade bread with it. I love that it doesn’t need yeast and you don’t have to wait until the dough rises. You just mix a few ingredients and stick it in the oven and you have warm, fresh bread in about 40 minutes! Jimmy and I still try to maintain a mostly paleo-ish diet but have incorporated some carbs like this spelt bread.
Compared to wheat flour, spelt flour is richer in many nutrients, such as protein, minerals and essential organic compounds. It also contains a high level of dietary fiber. It has a very dense, nutty flavor and I love that it keeps me feeling full for a long time. Most mornings, I’m out working and so I always make sure to eat a big, healthy breakfast. I’ll have one spelt bread toasted with peanut butter, jelly, a fried egg and couple of sausages. This usually holds me over for 4 hours which is huge because I’m always hungry!
Here’s a video I made showing just how simple it is!
Is there anything better than having warm bread straight out of the oven? The answer is no.
Here’s how to to make your own. You can buy spelt flour in most grocery stores. I recently bought a box from Amazon since it was cheaper than buying individual bags from the store.
(adapted from Pralines and Greens)
- 3 1/2 cups spelt flour
- 1/2 cups of rolled oats
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 cups of warm milk (I used either almond or pea protein milk)
- 3 tbsp agave syrup
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix together all the dry ingredients.
- Add the milk, agave and coconut oil and use a spatula to combine the wet into the dry ingredients.
- Don’t overmix. Just mix until everything is incorporated together.
- Spray your bread pan with oil and place ingredients into the pan.
- Stick in oven for about 40 minutes and you will see a hardened outer crust.
- Let it cool and then enjoy that bread with some butter or jelly! Oh good!
Ya’ll, it’s good! I hope you’ll try it out. It’s found to be easier to digest than wheat flour and I am finding that to be true. Sometimes, you just need a little carb and even better when it’s actually good for you!
