Yeast-free Bread

image

This ayurvedic bread is dense, yeast-free and takes no time to make. It’s the perfect bread for soups and stews. Adapted from Plantwell, I took their advice and made a cinnamon raisin version as well. Sliced with some butter, it’s a sweet nourishing afternoon snack.


Preheat your oven to 400 F


measure out:

  • 1 cup
    rolled oats or grounded steel cut oats
  • 1 cup
    whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp
    baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp
    sea salt
  • 2 tbsp
    maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup
    applesauce or 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp
    butter or ghee
  • 1 cup
    whole organic milk
  • 1 tsp
    cinnamon (optional)
  • 3/4 cup
    raisins (optional)

process:

  1. Food process oats.
  2. Combine the oatmeal, flour, baking powder and salt (and cinnamon if desired).
  3. In another bowl, mix maple syrup, applesauce, ghee/butter and milk.
  4. Combine the dry and wet mixtures and stir until a soft dough is formed (and raisins if desired).
  5. Knead the dough into a ball or loaf shape and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or when it sounds hollow when tapped.
