This bread is dense in protein and one piece will control your hunger attacks! There are 7 grams of protein in every serving of Farro.
I think that the best way to get the whole grain you need in your diet is to become a baker. I have found, or developed my own recipes for grain breads that I hope you will enjoy.
Before you begin to prepare this bread. Soak 1/2 cup farro and 1/2 cup raisins in 1 cup of boiling water. Let stand in the water for 15 minutes before draining and adding to mix. After draining, add 1/2 cup almond milk to the mixture, and then add to the rest of ingredients.
1/2 cup almond milk or skim milk
1/2 cup farro
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup boiling water
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp egg replacer or 1 egg
1/4 cup agave
1/4 cup canola oil
2 cups whole wheat flour
Mix dry ingredients first and then add agave and oil.
After soaking th farro and raisins in water for 15 min. add to the mix with 1/2 cup almond milk
Mixture should be still but not too dry ( if too dry add a little more milk.)
Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes.
Tips on Farro: Farro is a grain that does not take long to cook. When using other grains such as Amaranth, the bread may need to cook longer than 50 minutes.
As for all breads/cakes, I use the toothpick tip- if dry, it is cooked.
