Ancient 4 Grain Breakfast Bread #BreadBakers

Ancient 4 Grain Breakfast Bread and Loaf 3

This month our lovely #BreadBakers share an ancient secret with you. No, it has nothing to do with laundry detergent (if you are old enough to remember that commercial).
We’re here to help you savor the mouth-watering taste and texture Ancient Grain goodness creates in baked goods. Ancient grains are generally accepted to mean grains that have remained largely unchanged/un-hybridized over the last several hundred years, which means NO MODERN WHEAT.

This month’s BreadBakers’ theme of Ancient Grains, is hosted by Robin at A Shaggy Dough Story.


One of the challenges of baking bread without processed wheat is getting that chewy texture and airy mouth-feel that gluten gives to bread. Fortunately there are natural additives like eggs, and psyllium husk can hep bind the bread and make it less crumbly.

Ancient 4 Grain Breakfast Bread serves up a hearty, healthy way to start your day. The goodness of ancient grains ground without extensive processing. Teff flour brings added protein to the party. Kamut, spelt and psyllium husk add fiber to the mix. Sorghum and honey add a touch of sweetness.
