So I jumped right in and ordered a 5 pound bag of sprouted whole wheat flour from To Your Health Sprouted Flour. It is a great source of organic sprouted grains. I ordered through Amazon as that is how I stumbled on to their product. Next time I will order from them directly.
The flour arrived on Friday and came with a nice leaflet of recipes. I decided to make their cinnamon-raisin quick bread. It was a simple batter of sprouted flour mixed with buttermilk, then eggs, melted butter, agave nectar (they called for honey), salt, baking soda, cinnamon, raisins and vanilla extract. It bakes for an hour to an hour and a half. It says it makes one large or two small loaves. I should have used two pans as mine ran over (thank goodness I put a baking sheet underneath the pan). I also should have covered the loaf toward the end as it got a little bit dark. Even with that, it is delicious. I immediately ate the part that cooked over the edge with some butter!
I ate it this morning toasted with some peanut butter. It is very filling. I am surprisingly still not hungry and I ate 4 hours ago!
Does anyone else cook with sprouted grains? What do you think?
