    mmmm_gin's Note:

    This basic recipe is from Arrowhead Mills. The taste by itself is wonderful and works well when paired with salty or sweet foods/spreads. I've started to add different combinations or herbs, cheeses, and ground chia seeds into the mix as well. It's a great recipe to experiment with. I've found that the nutrient-rich bread itself is rather filling, so the loaf lasts somewhat longer than expected.

      I baked this in a bread machine & the result was very satisfactory. The bread has that traditional "nutty" flavor & slices well for either sandwiches or toast. My photo says it all!

      This bread was very delicious and the texture was perfect. I used whole grain spelt and the crust was light and flaky while the bread itself was chewy and nutty without being too heavy. Since I have not had a lot of luck making spelt bread with the bread machine I chose to make it in the oven. I will definitely make this again.
