Whole meal Bread Rolls
Today’s baking bread adventure was fun. While the plan was to make usual bread rolls, I ended up making it with a very healthy twist.
I do get asked for eggless version for certain recipes that I share, specially when it comes to bread. There are plenty of ‘substitutes' for egg but completely not using eggs or it’s substitutes can yield a good result in bread making. Of course I say this based on a last experience making a loaf and today making these rolls.
Today’s bread rolls are made using 100% whole meal flour without any use of butter/oil or sugar. Whole meal flour is wheat flour with good amount of wheat bran. Usually it is said (and I believe), brown bread that are commercially available aren’t wholesome but it has added white flour to get the perfect white bread like texture. But the rolls I made did get very close to how it is available commercially and are very healthy with no preservatives.
So if you are one of the bread lovers who not only like home made bread but are enthusiastic to give it a healthy twist, then please read on. Happy to share my version of ‘healthy whole meal, no sugar, no oil/butter, no egg rolls'. Also don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube by clicking here and pressing the SUBSCRIBE button
