Brace yourselves, people. I'm throwing a healthy recipe your way. You know I wouldn't post something if it wasn't fabulous, so you're going to have to trust me on this one!
We have my MIL to thank for this recipe. My FIL is on a special diet so while we were visiting them in California last week I got her to share this with me. First of all, the best part about this bread is that it is extremely easy to make. Second, it doesn't involve kneading, yeast and fussy rising times, things that intimidate me with baking bread (more specifically, cinnamon buns... I really must get on that).
This is great toasted for breakfast, so filling and delicious. The ingredients listed below are your base, from there add whatever fillings you like. I added a couple handfuls of chopped pecans and almonds, raisins, dried cranberries and apricots. I also tossed in 1/4 cup of flax seed, even after my recent flax incident. Top your bread off with some almond butter and honey and you're in for a treat, a healthy treat! Nothing better than starting your day off right!
2 cups spelt flower (I used Bob's Red Mill from Costco)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
Your choice of fillings!
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease loaf pan and set aside. Beat eggs in a small bowl. Add the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and mix together. Add eggs, milk and your choice of fillings to the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Pour in loaf pan and cook for 40 - 45 minutes.
