Petit Pain (Raw Bread)

We're moving into the Autumn here in Scotland now and I have been making bread over the last few days experimenting with different recipes. Here is one for you to try.

1 cup sprouted and dehydrated spelt
1/2 cup flax seed
1/2 cup sesame seed
1 tsp asofetida or other spice
1 tsp carraway seeds
dash sea salt
1 tablespoon olive or sesame oil
coconut oil as butter on warm bread

Grind up the spelt and seeds in a grinder until a course flour. Transfer to a bowl and add salt and spices. Use your fingertips to rub in the oil. Add a little water at a time until you have dough.

Transfer to your worktop and use ground buckwheat flour or flax to prevent the board getting sticky. Divide the bread mixture into about 8 even pieces. Take one piece and roll into a long 'snake'. Cut into 3 and make a plait. Or, you can simply slice your bread bun into thin slices.
Dry in the dehydrator @145 for 1-2 hours.

Delicious warm out of the dryer with coconut oil!


  1. This sounds great. Could spelt be substituted with buckwheat?

  3. Sure, you can use buckwheat instead.
