This recipe calls for spelt flour, which is in the triticum wheat family. While it does not contain as much of the protein ‘gluten’ as wheat, it does contain a reduced amount. For this reason, some people with gluten intolerance or sensitivity may be able to eat spelt without a problem (just as some people are able to tolerate oats); however, those who have celiac sprue should avoid the grain to prevent relapse. Spelt Bread with Blackberry Walnut Swirl Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 60 mins Total time: 1 hour 15 mins Serves: 14 Gluten free moist, spongy spelt bread spiked with a blackberry walnut swirl.

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a large bread pan with spray oil or butter.
