100 % Sprouted Spelt Bagels

These bagels are made with only sprouted grains and no flour, such as Essene Bread, without boiling:





500 g Spelt Grains ( about 3 cups)
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Vanilla (opt.)

  • Soak your grains for 8 hours or overnight
  • Rinse the saoked grains, return them to the container, cover and let sprout at room temperature for about 32-48 hours. Rinse 3 times between. As soon as a little tail shows itself they are ready. Don't rinse anymore.
  • Grind the sprouted grains in your Thermomix for about 30 sec. / speed 5, or run them through your juicer (my choice) or meat grinder
  • Mix vanilla and cinnamon in and divide dough with oiled hands in 12 pieces
  • Form dough into bagels
  • Place them on a baking stone and spray with some salt waterBake for 2 hours at 120°C  
I store them wrapped unrefrigerated for a couple of days,  in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer.
My seeds are soaked in OceanSolutionTM

Variation - Mix some carrot or juice pulp under the dough and form rolls:

Gekeimte Dinkel-Bagel

500 g Dinkel
1 TL Zimt
Vanille (optional)

  • Dinkelkoerner fuer 8 Std oder ueber Nacht einweichen
  • 3 x taeglich spuelen und abtropfen lassen, ca 32-48 Std, bis die Keimlinge sichtbar werden nicht mehr spuelen. Gut abgetropft in den TM geben und ca 30 Sek./Stufe 5 zerkleinern oder durch den Fleischwolf oder Green Power Entsafter geben
  • Die Gewuerze unterheben, in 12 gleich grosse Bagel formen , mit Salzwasser bespruehen und
  • 2 Std bei 120 °C backen
Die Bagel halten sich fuer ein paar Tage bei Zimmertemperatur, ca 1-2 Wochen im Kuehlschrank oder nach Bedarf  einfrieren 

Variante: Karottenpulp unter den Teig mischen und zu Broetchen formen

  5. Tebasile! Wow! What fantstic bagels - what a find - this site! I used to follow you on my rss feed - but I never get to them any more - or my readers... do you think you could install a subscribe by e-mail plug in so I don't miss a post? I would love that. Your work is amazing... and I would love to see a post about you visiting a red fife farm, too!

  6. Hi Valerie,

    Thank you, I have to find out how to install this.... . And yes, I can do a post about the farm. I think I have a link at the Carrot-Beet-Salad recipe and the Seitan recipes.
