Recipe Directions

1. Grind up the spelt and seeds in a grinder until they become a course flour. Transfer to a bowl and add salt and spices.

2. Use your fingertips to rub in the oil. Add a little water at a time until you have dough.

3. Transfer to your worktop and use ground buckwheat flour or flax to prevent the board getting sticky.

4. Divide the bread mixture into about 8 even pieces. Take one piece and roll into a long ‘snake.’ Cut into 3 and make a plait, or you can simply slice your bread bun into thin slices.

5. Press bread into sesame seeds or poppy seeds. Dry in the dehydrator at 145 Fahrenheit for 1-2 hours.

6. Spread the coconut oil like butter on the bread and enjoy!

Good question about the bloat- what are others experiences with sprouted spelt?

Hello, thank you for your comments. Eden, asofetida is a spice that is used in India to replace onion and garlic. It has a slightly cheesy oniony flavour. You could try adding some onion powder instead or grated garlic.

omgoodness!!!! I made a modified version of this bread and wow, it was delicious! I've tried at least 10 different raw bread recipes and hated all of them! I realized that I can't eat a lot of flax seed. So I used ground up chia seed instead of the flax, and since my daughter is allergic to sesame seeds I used hemp seeds. It turned out great. I made a challah with some of the dough, and it was perfect for us to celebrate Shabbat on Friday... and will now be a staple in my diet. Oh, and I ate it with some of my seed cheese and it was just like bagal and cream cheese! thank you for such a wonderful recipe. :)

Hi, I'm sorry but this is a debatable point and I'm not into debates. Dry at the temperature you want to, it will still work out.

does it have to be dehydrated at 145 degrees? doesn't that technically make it not raw when its over 118?

Hi Queenfluff, those shapes were really fun to make. Just roll out thin snakes, cut into 3 and then plait! I thought it was quite novel. I love the slices too for spreading coconut butter onto them.

I think I'll try it with buckwheat instead of spelt, I have a huuuge bag of buckwheat waiting to be used. I might alternate with millet too. Looks lovely, very creative!

Wow, this looks great! I will be trying these. I like that the recipe has similar ingredients to the bagels I make so I know they will turn out yummy. Just an FYI - for those you worried about the grains. I have made raw bagels with millet and quniona and they turned out great. I also use rye. So you can use other grains - I haven't made them with buckwheat before but a few people told me they tried and they didn't like the taste of them. But add herbs and spices to compensate for that. I use sunflower seeds instead of sesame and no flax. How did you get those cute shape without driving yourself nuts? :)

I used to get alot of bloating with wheat too but spelt has less gluten and the fact that it has been sprouted makes it more a living food rather than a dead starchy grain. Experiment and see what works. I have also used 1 cup buckwheaties, 1 cup sesame seeds and 1 cup flaxseed as a basic bread mix and the results are also very good! Enjoy.

I'm a bit scared of trying spelt from having bad experiences when eating cooked spelt bread. Do you think the raw sprouted spelt will bloat like the cooked version? I am also craving bread and this looks amazing. What could you substitute the spelt with?

Wow, I think this might be a reason for me to finally get a dehydrator (or in the fall when I crave foods like this again). Looks amazing!

Oh yum! I love sprouted bread! That sounds really delish. What is asofetida? What is a more similar spice?
