Wholegrain Spelt Bread Rolls

These bread rolls are made with a mix of ground whole grain spelt and refined spelt flour. Spelt's nutty flavour doesn't just taste good, it has so many other nutritional benefits that are amazingly good for you.
Like wheat flour, it is sold as both refined / white or whole grain flour. Because it has an extremely fragile glutten content, so don’t expect bread that use spelt to rise high.
Spelt has the right combination of nutrients and can help you with Migraine Headaches, lower your risk of Type II Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, and help women avoid Gallstones and Breast Cancer. For an in-depth nutritional profile, please visit whfoods.

Wholegrain Spelt Bread Rolls

I notice that you used spelt flour a lot, I should try it too since it is so healthy instead of just baking with the usual bread flour or AP flour. These rolls really look so crusty! Great with soup I am sure!

lena 16/5/12 10:09

i'm now also leaning how to incorporate spelt little by little into my bread making. Yeah,i find that they do not rise up as high as compared to using just bread and ordinary flour. Your pictures are always so enticing!

I do hope you will participate and add to the fun!

I don't think I've ever tried spelt - I need to give it a shot. Those rolls look crusty and gorgeous - love that you slashed them to make almost mini loaf look-alikes.

Your rolls came out great! I've tried a few times to cook with spelt and it never turns out right. I'll give it another try and make this recipe. They look too good to pass up! Traci, BurntApple.com

kitcheninspirations 16/5/12 21:08

Your breads are always absolutely gorgeous, Angie. So professional looking. And when you said that spelt doesn't have a lot of gluten so don't expect a lot of rise, I was surprised how light and airy the dough looked. I'm sure the texture is quite delicious too.

Heidi @ Food Doodles 17/5/12 00:38

Beautiful! I can't get over the beautiful things you make with whole grains. I'm curious about the refined spelt flour you use though, I can't get that here so I'm wondering if just an all purpose flour would be a good substitute. I love the flavor of spelt though!

I love how many healthy recipes you have! These look fantastic and your rolls came out looking perfect. Dinkel geschliffen?! You're in Germany? Don't you just love how cheap whole spelt is here? I get it for .89/kg and can't believe the prices in the US. I'm going to go browse around some more. :)

Gerry/Gewoon Lekker Gewoon 18/5/12 18:47

I would like to have these breads for breakfast but I don't want to get up 2,5 hours before because of the proofing. At what stage can you put the dough in the fridge so you can bake the bread just before breakfast?
Dutch greetings, Gerry

Gerry/Gewoon Lekker Gewoon 18/5/12 18:55

Forgot to ask: what is the roastingpan for? water? You do bake the breadrolls on the baking tray with parchment paper?

In the UK we get it from health food shops, or sometimes a bakery will sell it or give it to you. Some of the large supermarkets with in store bakeries may have it too.
