5 cups organic whole grain spelt flour
1 tablespoon Xantham Gum
2/3 tablespoon Salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Mix all those dry ingredients together then add:
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
1-2 handful of oats
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)
4 tablespoons sunflower kernels (optional)
Mix well and then add:
2.5 cups of tap water
Mix dough thoroughly with the back of a wooden spatula (works best)
Fill in a baking pan lined with baking paper
Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 50 minutes
Let cool on cooling rack
-Any flour will do, nutritionally whole grain is best.
-Spelt is an ancient grain and not hybridized, it is better tolerated than wheat flour, BUT NOT GLUTEN FREE
-Xantham Gum is only necessary if ‘non-wheat’ flour is used to prevent the bread from falling apart while cutting.
-Switch out ingredients: You may add raisins, chopped apricots and other dried fruits. Chopped nuts of any kind make for a fun delicious bread as well.
-To make breadsticks or any other creations by kid’s hands, use less water to have dough that you can manipulate with your hands without sticking. Start with about 13⁄4 cups of water and add more if needed.
