mini and mini-mini rye snacks

Hi TFL'ers :)

I haven't been posting in my blog for some time. Currently I have startet writing my MA thesis and my spare time for blogging is not much.


I want to share theese min rye on the go/lunch pack snack breads. They are a fave of my daughter and boyfriend.They have a handfull of raisins and cranberrys and some sunflower seeds in. I also found out, that bakers in Denmark use food colour in their rye bread, so i tried it too.

rye logs ready for a sprinkle of wather and a roll in sesam seeds.

Looks almost like chocolate, huh? ;)

the other variant - mini rye breads and mini-mini ones for nursery packed lunch.

the finished mini breads. They taste great and freeze as well. Tomorrow they will be doubble as delicious!
