Spelt Baguette

Spelt bread is delicious and easy to make -- although it contains gluten, it's much better for your gut in comparison to regular wheat breads.


1 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp coconut sugar sugar (or any other sugar)
1 cup warm water
1 ½ whole wheat spelt flour
¼ cup potato starch
¼ cup flaxseed meal
1 tsp salt


1. Add water, yeast and sugar to a bowl, stirring to mix. Let sit for 10 minutes for the yeast to make a foam.

2. In another bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix them well.

3. Add the flour mixture slowly to the yeast mixture and mix until it forms a dough.

4. Knead the dough with floured hands for a few minutes.

5. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and set the dough aside to rise for an hour or two.

6. Preheat oven to 220°C.

7. Roll the dough out with your hands on top of your table or countertop, you can line your work surface with parchment paper sprinkled with flour. Form a long thin baguette shape, and score it a sharp knife or bread scorer (I use a razor blade on a stick!)

8. Bake for 20-30 minutes. To help create a crust, after fully baked, turn off the oven and leave it in there to cool with the oven door open.
