Sprouted Rye and Spelt Bread

Sprouted Rye and Spelt Bread

I was in an experimental mood this past weekend so I sprouted some rye berries to make sprouted rye bread.

It’s been a while since I’ve made sprouted bread. It is one of my favorite types of bread so every once in a while I just have to make it.

This Sprouted Rye and Spelt Bread is made with sprouted rye berries, rye flour and all-purpose Spelt flour.

In most of my other sprouted breads, I’ve used white bread flour so I decided to try a different combination.  I’m trying to incorporate more ancient grains in my bread baking so this was a good experiment.
