It’s ironic; before I went paleo, I actually hated bread. The reason being mostly that my family would always buy the “all-natural, 100% whole grain, no-high-fructose corn syrup” bread from the grocery store. Man that stuff was terrible. It might have been free of high fructose corn syrup, but I’m pretty sure there was dirt in there. A lot of it.
Then when I went paleo, I realized I actually missed bread. Not the yucky kind, but the homemade kind. Bread fresh from the oven slathered with butter and plenty of local honey.
The other reason I tried so hard to create paleo multi grain bread was that is was a challenge. It seemed so impossible – Paleo bread?! That’s an oxymoron if there ever was one! So naturally I had to conquer this impossible task.
Those recipes were for a white-style bread. This recipe is their multi-“grain” counterpart. It’s kind of the bread that I wish I remembered from childhood. Dense yet soft, filling and full of nutritious seeds. Break out the butter and honey for this paleo multi grain bread!
