Healthy Cooked Comfort Food

There's nothing like a little bit of cooked comfort food every so often.  


Super Brainy Spelt Bread

I LOVE this bread!! I also think everyone does too and I'm always making it for people!!  Its bursting with Omegas for brain development.

240g Brown Spelt Flour
100g White Spelt Flour
40g Chia seeds/sunflower seed/pumpin seeds or any seeds that tickle your fancy.  (I tend to throw a bunch of different ones in every time)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
2 desert spoons sunflower oil
300ml of rice milk/almond milk or any milk that you like

Heat oven to 200°C.

Line a loaf tin with baking paper

Stir all ingredients together, ensuring you get a wet but not runny texture.  

Pour into loaf tin.

I like to place pumpkin seeds on top as they get all toasty but make sure they are stuck into the mixture as they will otherwise fall out when you turn take the bread out of tin.

Bake for around 40 minutes, turning half way through.

Stick a skewer into bread and if it comes out clean they are done.

Place over a rack to cool and to prevent base getting soggy.
