Re: is spelt bread better for you?

i use it alot in my baking etc. I find it has a nuttier flavor

this is how i made my bread machine bread, if i used a whole grain flour i would add more gluten to make it rise more, otherwise it was way to heavy and dense for the kids to eat (but we do not have gluten issues)

One egg (at room temp) mixed with enough water (at room temp also) to equal one cup plus 6 teaspoons of fluid total.
3 Tablespoons soft butter.
3 Tablespoons brown sugar.
1 1/2 teaspoons salt.
2 cups whole wheat flour.
1 cup spelt flour.
1 1/2 Tablespns wheat gluten (makes the heavy flours rise better and taste less solid)
1 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast.

Cook on the whole wheat bread cycle and choose the light crust option.
