Since I am pretty interested in eating and living in a healthier style and both I have fallen in love with baking for a long time, I try to find the way to balance both side…

This recipe was adapted from here, since I don’t have the ingredients as original recipe and I was just in the mood of I-want-a-bread-and-I-want-it-now, then here is what I did last night:

Dry ingredients

  • 2 cups black sesame + brown rice powder (I bought them which contains 1/3 black sesame and 2/3 brown rice. If you have sprouted brown rice powder or brown rice powder, then use 1,5 cups instead)
  • 3/8 cups tapioca powder (I was so lazy to go out to buy arrowroot powder last night, if you have arrowroot powder, I think it would be better to use it)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet ingredients

  • 1 cup plain yogurt no sugar (I used my homemade yogurt instead of kefir in the original recipe)
  • 2 small eggs or 1 1/2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or 2 tsp diet sugar (I used Equal) (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven in 350 degrees.
  • Mix well all dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • Mix well all wet ingredients in another bowl.
  • I used a whisk to mix 2 mixtures together until incorporated. Pour the batter into the loaf pans. I used to 2 small non-stick loaf pans 2,5*5 inches.
  • Bake in 40 minutes (or longer if you use bigger pan) until toothpick comes out dry. You may want to use aluminum foil to cover the top to avoid it burnt.
  • After baked, let it cool completely on the rack before sliced. (I think it’s better to serve warm)

Actually I sliced my bread when it was pretty hot and its smell was too good to resist at 10pm… So I waited few minutes then tried with honey, then maple syrup, then peanut butter. And I vote on honey! This morning I tried it with warm milk and a hugeee spoon of homemade reduced-sugar pineapple jam (can’t help!).

I definitely will try this again and again, and will try all brown rice powder and arrowroot powder next time. This bread keeps me stay full longer and I don’t feel like I want to snack.

I hope you like it, dear.

Cheers! 🙂
