Gluten-free Bread that also tastes good? Yes there is, but once again with a small limitation. It is just a little different in taste than a “normal” wheat or Spelt bread . Honestly, I think it’s totally awesome because it’s easier than ever to make. The #veganuary is in full swing and I’m just experimenting. Madness, how my kitchen always looks. No sooner am I done with one Recipe I’m already starting on the next one. In between there is cleaning and sometimes I can’t believe it when I have cooked for 8 hours at a stretch. Why am I actually doing this? Of course, because I enjoy it, but mostly because I get such great feedback from you guys and then I know it was worth it. So, who’s ready for today’s “treat”?
Gluten free bread for the win!
We had in the last Blog Post we already talked about the sense and nonsense of Gluten talked. My conclusion? Gluten is not bad per se (my personal opinion) and unless you suffer from an intolerance or allergy, there is no reason to avoid gluten per se.
It’s just fun for me to try something new every now and then. With this Bread I did not find it difficult, because it is an absolute nutrient bomb. Oatmeal, mixed seeds, vegetable yogurt and salt. What, that’s it? Yes, and it’s not getting any more. This goes really snappy from the hand and after an hour, the bread is then also baked. Ok, the smell is now not as exciting as a sourdough bread. No matter, but it is really nice and juicy, thanks to our yogurt.
How healthy are actually oatmeal?
Oatmeal is always such a fun topic. For many of us, it evokes the most hilarious grimaces when we think of oatmeal. Others go into raptures when they think of delicious Porridge to Breakfast think. There is nothing cheaper and healthier than oatmeal. I can promise you that you will really grow big and strong with these flakes, because they are full of healthy ingredients:
- Contain long-chain carbohydrates, which are broken down slowly compared to simple sugars and cause blood sugar to rise only slowly
- Beta-glucans also help prevent a sharp rise in blood sugar
- Contain extra fiber
- Minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, iron and zinc
- Have the highest B1 and B6 content of all cereals
- Contain a lot of vegetable protein and little fat
TIP: Oatmeal is low in gluten, but not gluten-free. If you want to buy gluten-free oatmeal, just pay special attention to it and check the packaging carefully.
