Druid Bread

This is a recipe adapted from the book, Natural Magic by John Michael Greer. I love this recipe. It is easy and super yummy and can be adjusted to your liking. I am always playing around with the whole wheat to all-purpose ratio.

Druid Bread

Ingredients

  • ¾ Cup lukewarm water
  • 1 Tbsp Yeast (I leave it rounded)
  • 1 ½ Cup All Purpose Flour
  • ½ Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ Cup Steel-Cut Oats
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 Cup honey

(makes one loaf)

Slowly pour yeast into water. Stir. Let sit for about 10 minutes.

While yeast is sitting, mix dry ingredients together. Pour in honey and yeast Mix together, then knead for 5 – 10 minutes.

Oil a bowl. Place dough in bowl and turn over to coat in oil. Let rise until double in size, about 30 minutes.

Punch down dough. Let rise again.

Oil cookie sheet/bread pans. Punch down dough. Shape dough and place on cookie sheet or in pan.

Heat oven to 450°. Let dough rise and rest for about 15 minutes before placing in oven. As soon as you put bread in oven, lower heat to 375°.

Let bread bake until it sounds hollow when tapped on bottom. 18 – 23 minutes.

stop

That is what I need to start saying to myself: “stop.” I have been crazy eating lately. I don’t even realize it until it is already too late. What the frak is going on??? I think it is stress eating, but it is still so unlike myself. I mean, I have eaten poorly in the past, but not like this where I don’t even know that I am doing it. I am going to need to start making a menu again. This is ridiculous. I need to run tomorrow/today… on Friday. I really need to get to sleep. G’night.
