Sprouted Wheat Sandwich Loaf with Sprouted Spelt Berries

My latest bake continues my recent obsession with sprouted grains in bread. I've been experimenting with them a lot lately and have found the flavor truly excellent. There is a nice sweetness to the sprouted grain and none of the bitterness that you find in whole wheat flour. Combine this with the great healthy benefits that come from sprouting grain and you have a great addition to many breads.

At first I tried playing around with sprouted wheat in country breads and had great results but it was time to step it up. My latest bake is an extremely tasty sprouted wheat sandwich bread. This loaf's flavor is unlike anything I've tasted when using pure whole wheat flour. The sprouted spelt berries really add a nice texture to complement the flavor. I think it is a near perfect sandwich bread. So far it's made several delicious peanut butter banana sandwiches(my favorite snack).  It's likely going to be my go to sandwich bread as long as I've got some sprouted wheat available.

you are hooked on sprouts can seeds and sprouts be far behind?

Your bread is always very well crafted and this was no exception.

Elvis would be proud! :)   Sprouted grain is high on my to-bake list, I'm looking forward to trying it.

It really is delicious and not nearly as difficult to work with as I originally thought it would be. I'm hooked!
