Multi-grain nut bread (quick & easy)
Servings: 1 loaf Time: 60 minutes (Prep time: 5 minutes!) Difficulty: easy
In Germany we eat a lot of bread. That’s the thing, bread was always a big deal in our houses when we were kids. As long as we can remember, we ate bread for dinner, which was firmly established in Germany in the old days. Dark multi-grain bread is a childhood memory and still our favorite bead, even if we don’t eat it that often anymore. It is very healthy and filling compared to white wheat bread. And as the colder days come closer now, we’ll start swapping salads for soups and white baguettes for darker bread. So it’s time for cozier foods and all the things we love about autumn.
This bread recipe is very quick and easy to make. Just mix all the ingredients and let the oven do the work. It is this kind of recipe where you get what you see.
Full of seeds and nuts this bread is packed with nutrients, proteins and essential fatty acids. It is filling and stabilizes your blood sugar, which means you will likely nibble less throughout the day because you just don’t feel the urge for something sweet.
