Ezekial bread is one of the healthiest types of bread you can make on your own. It’s tasty, and it always impresses guests.
So, what is it about this bread that makes it such a great choice? Well, this bread is not only a whole wheat bread (which we all know is a very positive thing), but is also a sprouted whole wheat bread. What this means, is that the bread uses sprouted whole grains – including the likes of wheat, barley and spelt – in order to make a loaf that is super-low in gluten and that is easy to digest.
Sprouting grains basically involves exposing the seeds to water, and thereby letting them germinate and sprout.
And of course we all know where the name comes from – the Bible quote that pretty much provides us with the recipe and method: take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself.
The process is fairly simple then, but there are definitely some tricks and tips that will help you to make the bread all the more effective. Here are some of the best tips to keep in mind to create the perfect Ezekial bread.
1 Use a Mixture of Grains
The first tip is to use a variety of different grains. The very fact that this bread is so complex and varied is what makes it interesting to eat and helps to provide the wide range of different health benefits.
Most sprouted breads will contain three common grains, those being wheat, spelt, and barley. You should aim to use at least these three grains, but likewise try out different options and combinations to see what works and to provide your bake with even more interesting flavours.
One of the best things about baking in general in fact is to experiment and try different things. After all, why make it yourself at all if you’re just going to follow one set recipe and then never try branching out at all?
