"Le Croix" Yeast Free Wheat Bread

From Kristi's Kitchen


3 c. fresh milled whole wheat flour (spouted is best)
4 tsp. aluminum free baking powder
2 tsp. sea salt
1 can Le Croix sparkling water (1 1/2 c. liquid) -any of the flavors
1/4 c. oil (grapeseed or olive)


-Preheat oven to 400 degrees
-Combine all ingredients (will be a sticky dough)
-Pour dough into 9x5 loaf pan, spread and cut an x across the top of the dough
-Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes
-Let cool in pan for 10 minutes and transfer to cooling rack
-Cool completely before slicing

This is a country style bread- very rustic (1 slice is the size of half of a traditional slice)

I've tried several of the different flavors of Le Croix and all of them make a unique bread:

*Lemon goes well with olive oil -add some dried rosemary and fresh garlic for a mediteranian flare.
*Lime combined with grapeseed oil and a bit of cilantro and jalapeno for a spicy twist...
*Orange is delicious with a touch of honey and cinnamon for a sweet treat!

You can make this bread with any liquid really -experiment away... I've tried other liquids but, to me,the "Le Croix" sparkling water adds a softness to the texture and bit more moisture than any other...

Be Creative ~ Happy Eating!
