It is JUST perfect! Rises well, great taste and normal texture (like wheat bread thanks to the millet flour!). This can work for O & B blood types and celiac people.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (2 beneficials)
  • Type AB (4 beneficials)
  • Type B (4 beneficials)
  • Type O (1 beneficials)
  • Baked Good
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons Rapid Rise yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 Tablespoons organic brown sugar
  • 2-1/4 cup whole spelt flour
  • 1 cup whole rice flour
  • 1 cup whole millet flour
How to make it:
  1. Dissolve yeast into warm water rather than making it the last ingredient placed on top of the flour.
  2. Put that into the bread machine's bowl.
  3. Add oil, salt, sugar, flour into bread machine, all in that order.
  4. Bake on the 'shortest' baking cycle (between 1 and 2 hours cycle).
  5. As there is no gluten in these flours, there are certain procedures that need to be changed using a bread machine. The 'mix' and 'knead' settings tend to overmix the less glutinous spelt flour.
  6. When the beep sounds during the cycle, you can also add nuts, raisins or whatever you like.
  7. The bread can be stored in the fridge for one week or in the freezer.
  8. It is JUST Perfect!!!
