When I was a classroom teacher I had a wonderful student teacher who was also a great cook! She introduced me to this delicious and nourishing bread that’s perfect in the Fall with a yummy soup!
2 cups spelt/kamut/flour of your choice
2 cups rolled oats
¼ cup wheat germ/bran/I use ground flax
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
½ cup molasses
2 TBSP melted butter or coconut oil
1 cup dried fruit
1 2/3 cup buttermilk (I use yogurt or kefir)
Mix dry ingredients. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Let stand in a greased bread pan for 20 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes. Remove from pan immediately. Makes a hearty meal or snack with nut butter, hummus, smoked salmon, pesto…the possibilities are endless.
