Recipe by Pickles McGee

The original recipe came from a whole grains cookbook and used whole wheat flour instead of spelt, but I'm starting to experiment with spelt flour in my breads and made a few adjustments. It turned out fantastic! A light whole grain bread with great flavor, perfect for sandwiches! You could also use any other whole grain flour instead of spelt.
