Best wholemeal bread recipe with spelt flour

There is nothing better than having freshly baked bread in front of you. The smell and the anticipation of the soft and slightly crispy bread is tempting. Even though it’s easier to buy bread in a bakery, it’s different when you bake it all by yourself. You enjoy it even more when you know which ingredients are included in your wholemeal bread recipe.

You can also adapt the recipe a little to your own wishes and vary it slightly. You can always add the grains and seeds that you like and vary the sweetness a little, as in today’s recipe, the wholemeal bread recipe with spelt flour, a light spelt bread.

Delicious spelt bread made from wholemeal spelt flour

Bread made with wholemeal flour always tastes very healthy and keeps you full for longer. The advantages of wholemeal flour compared to white flour are easy to explain. While for white flour, such as easy wheat flour, only the endosperm is used for grinding, wholemeal flour contains a mixture of the endosperm, the bran and the germ of the grain.

Since the important fiber, minerals and vitamins are found in the husk and the germ, white flour is not as healthy as whole grain flour. The dietary fiber in wholemeal flour compared to wheat flour is very different.

Wholemeal spelt is ideal if you want a higher protein content, iron content and potassium content than is found in wholemeal wheat flour. Spelt also has more calories than wheat, but wholemeal spelt has less vitamin B3 and less fiber than wholemeal wheat.

Healthy nutrition with wholemeal flour

Healthy eating means much more to us today than it did a few years ago. Choosing the right foods is therefore crucial for our health and well-being. One area where many people can improve their diet is by switching from white flour products to whole grains.

Wholemeal flour offers numerous health benefits compared to refined flour and the difference in processing has a significant impact on the nutritional content of the flour.

Higher fiber content

An outstanding advantage of wholemeal flour, as in our wholemeal bread recipe, is its high fiber content compared to light flour. Fiber is good for healthy digestion and helps to keep blood sugar levels stable, thus reducing the risk of heart disease. Since whole grain flour contains the bran portion, which is rich in fiber, eating whole grain products such as whole grain bread is an effective way to increase fiber intake.

Rich in nutrients

Wholemeal flour contains a large number of nutrients compared to light flour. These include vitamins such as B vitamins (e.g. folic acid, niacin) and minerals such as iron, magnesium and zinc. These nutrients are important for metabolism, energy production and the function of various organ systems. By consuming whole grain products, you can ensure that your body is supplied with these vital nutrients.

Low glycemic index

Whole grain products generally have a lower glycemic index than refined carbohydrates. This means that they raise blood sugar levels more slowly and keep you feeling full for longer. This is particularly important for people with diabetes or those who want to reduce their risk of diabetes. It is also helpful for people who want to pay a little more attention to their figure to look out for products with a low glycemic index.

Better for heart health

Regular consumption of whole grain products such as whole grain bread is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. This is partly due to the fiber in whole grains, which can lower cholesterol levels. Wholemeal products also provide important phytonutrients such as antioxidants, which protect against inflammation and thus support the cardiovascular system.

If you prefer to eat white bread and don’t value wholegrain products, you will feel hungry again more quickly and want to eat more overall. Even though the easy and sweet products often have their appeal, in this day and age, knowing what you have now, you often have to ask yourself whether it is really worth the risk to your body in the long run. Of course, there’s never anything wrong with indulging and enjoying yourself from time to time, but it should be done consciously and not as an everyday meal.

Another variation is our wholemeal bread recipe with walnuts as a dinner bread. It looks super elegant and tastes just as good, but the crust makes it even more crispy. The only way to make it even healthier is with our seed bread without flour and without oat flakes. Do you like baking your own bread as much as we do?

  • 200 g white spelt flour
  • 7 g instant yeast
