Here’s Why You Should Make Your Own Bread At Home

You get to control what goes in. Here’s the thing about commercial bread. When you look at the label, you’ll notice a long list of ingredients. And sometimes, not all those ingredients are healthy. Making your own bread ensures you add the healthy ingredients you like, and leave out the not-so-good stuff.

It’s tastier. Have you ever had bread that was just pulled out of the oven? Seriously, nothing beats fresh bread. And if you make your own at home, you’ll always have fresh bread.

It will make your home smell better than a bakery. Just ask my husband. Coming home to bread being baked is one of his favorite things because the house smells absolutely divine!

Tips And Tricks To Make This Healthy Seed Bread

  • Use whole, raw seeds. You’ll want to use whole pumpkin, sunflower, and hemp seeds. Make sure they’re raw too. That means no added salt or oil!
  • Adding chia and flax seeds. These have a gel-like consistency when combined with water. Both chia and ground flax will help hold the bread together.
  • Don’t skip the psyllium husks. This is a non-negotiable ingredient. This fibrous ingredient is what binds everything together.

If you’re looking for an easy bread to make at home that’s also full of nutritional value, this seed bread is it! There’s no kneading involved. Combine your ingredients, add to your loaf pan, and bake!
