Easy Bread Recipe

You guys, I’m the worst. The literal worst. I told you all that I would post my bread recipe…That I have gotten quite a few questions about now ……on Saturday but as the weekend went on I got so busy busy and my sweet hubby planned a family date for us and we went to a concert and had a fun dinner out with the kiddos, so my little bread recipe took a back seat. But y’all, the wait is over!

As you know if you’ve been following for a while that we “eat clean” for the most part. I don’t eat a whole lot of bread or pasta and high carby grain things, when I do buy bread products I tend to buy sprouted grains, major multi-grains but I also still feel really weird about buying processed bread, of which the ingredients have touched unknown surfaces ( I’m super weird about how food I’m going to eat is prepared..)

 But I could never convince the hubs that cutting back on bread is a good idea, apparently I won’t be able to convince Sloane either lol! And tbh with Fall coming on and being pregnant I’m starting to crave soup and crusty bread. So, it makes since that I should find a solution for all of my food neurocies and my weird pregnancy cravings and just learn to make my own bread. I came across a great recipe online and I’ve been able to refine my method for this bread and tweek it just a little to make bread bowls.

You guys should totally try this bread yourself, it’s way easy to make and tastes delicious!
