This is so healthy and tasty too! For the sprouted grains you may use wheat berries,quinoa, rye, spelt, etc., even lentils! Mix and match grain sprouts to your heart's content. Adapted from the SproutPeople. When using whole wheat and/or rye flours you might add wheat gluten - at a rate of 1/8 cup per cup of flour - as it often produces a nicer loaf. Enjoy!

I had a tough time with this one, unfortunately. It took me several tries to get sprouts. I'm in a very humid climate, which may have affected them. I went to the sproutpeople website and got some tips that finally helped me get decent sprouts at least. Once I had sprouts, I tried twice to make the bread, but it just didn't rise at all. I've made many breads before, but somewhere from making the sprouts to making the bread, it didn't work. I'm disappointed, because it sounds like a fabulous recipe in all the other reviews!
