Surprise, surprise. It is another spelt-based recipe! This time, I created a recipe for vegan spelt bread. Spelt adds such a lovely nutty natural taste to the bread, so I recommend using it even if you don’t have problems with high-gluten flours.

Servings: 1 Loaf




  • Toast the hemp seeds in a dry frying pan on a medium to high heat until they smell fragrant and they are golden brown
  • Scrape the hemp seeds out into a mortar and pestle and grind until smooth with a few chunks
  • Put the flours, yeast, crushed hemp seeds, salt and sugar into a large bowl and mix them together.
  • Pour in the water, mix until it well incorporated and then mix in the tbsp of oil
  • With your hands mix everything together into a doughy mass.
  • Knead the dough for about 10 minutes, in the bowl, on a work surface, or in a standalone mixer with dough hook. Dust lightly with flour if required.
  • Place the dough into a lightly oiled large mixing bowl and cover with a clean plastic bag and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about an hour.
  • Rub some oil around the inside of a 1kg/2lb loaf tin.
  • Knead the dough for about 5 minutes (by hand or by mixer)
  • Shape the dough and put it into your prepared tin.
  • Wrap the tin in your clean plastic bag and leave it to rise in a warm place for 35 minutes.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200° (fan)
  • Remove the plastic bag and bake the loaf for 40-45 minutes. Until golden brown on the top and it makes a hollow sound when you tap it on the bottom of the tin
  • Leave to cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes
  • Turn the loaf out of the tin and leave to cool completely on the wire rack
