Tasty health bread

our blog
we have already shared some recipes from the passionate baker Cilli Reisinger with you.
And so today we have again a great recipe for you: a health bread!

What makes this bread not only tasty but also rich is the variety of nutrients it contains: Fiber, protein, carbohydrates and fats – mainly from the cereals. Since each cereal also has a different content of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), a mixture of cereals, as we have in this health bread, brings a particularly large amount of nutrients. And the pumpkin and sunflower seeds, as well as spices contain not only vitamins and minerals, but also phytochemicals.*.

  • 500 g whole spelt flour

  • 3 tablespoons bread spice
  • 1 tablespoon caraway additionally
  • 100 g pumpkin or sunflower seeds
  • 500 ml buttermilk

Take 100 ml of lukewarm water from the ingredients and dissolve the yeast in it and let it rise for 5 minutes. Then prepare a dough with all the other ingredients and knead well with the dough hooks. Let the dough rise for 1 hour.

Form 3 rolls and place them on a greased or baking paper-lined baking tray. Let rise again, brush with water, sprinkle with grains (sunflower seeds, sesame seeds), place in preheated oven and bake.
