Sprouted Grain Bread

  1. Soak 4 cups/225 g of wheat berries and 1 cup/450 g of Kamut or similar whole grain for 3 days. 
  2. Change the water each day. 
  3. Then drain, cover, and let it sprout for 4 hours.

Gather the following dry ingredients together and mix well:

  • 2 T/28 g yeast
  • 1/4 c/112 g flax, ground
  • 2 t/10 g sea salt
  • 1/4 c/112 g raw sugar

If you happen to be GLUTEN-FREE or have CELIAC DISEASE  you may have heard that it is OKAY for you to eat sprouted grain bread.  I would suggest that you NOT EAT any sprouted breads that have the 'usual suspects' in them (wheat, rye, barley, corn).  There is conflicting information on the Internet with some assumptions that baking healthy bread means that a sprouted wheat, barley or rye grain will somehow have dispensed of its proteins through the process of sprouting.  The sprouting process might make the proteins easier to digest for people who are only moderately gluten-sensitive, but for the gluten-allergic, gluten-intolerant, and especially, the Celiac (Sprue) person, it is best to err on the side of caution and avoid eating or baking this and other sprouted grain breads.
