German Health Loaf

I have to share this great recipe with you.

A couple of times I tried to bake my own bread but never with very satisfying results. Now I finally found a recipe that I really love! It’s originally from a German Children’s Cookbook (Die Maus:”Gesunde Snacks”) but I changed the recipe a bit and will share my own new version with you.

I love that it’s so easy to make (a children’s recipe!), contains lots of good healthy ingredients and tastes delicious. My children just ate it by the slice, sometimes with a bit of butter but most of the time just on its own. So here we go:

German Health Loaf

Ingredients (for one loaf):

  • 30 g millet
  • 150 g plain flour
  • 300 g whole wheat flour
  • 1 sachet of dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 30 g butter
  • 30 g sunflower seeds
  • 20 g linseed
  • 20 g sesame seeds
  • 150 g natural yogurt
Place millet in a bowl, cover with water and let it soak overnight.
Mix flours, yeast and salt in a bowl. Now add all the other ingredients and 180 ml of warm water. Mix and knead for 5 min.
Let the dough rest in a warm place.
Knead again and place in a loaf pan (or shape a loaf with your hands and place on baking tray covered with baking paper).
Let your dough rest for another 15 min.
Place a heatproof bowl with water in the oven. Bake your bread on the lowest rack for 45 min (gas mark 6/400° F/200° C).
Let cool a bit before taking out of the tin. Enjoy!
