One thing I really miss is yeasty bread. Make it crusty, seedy, yeasty bread and you really got me! Alas, this isn’t your typical yeast bread, but you know what- it does taste delicious! I got the idea after seeing some recipes over on Foodie Fiasco– Kelly has some awesome stuff. But I’ve changed it up to make it single serving, and more suited to my macros.
I wasn’t sure if I should just use yeast, or also add baking powder, so I made two batches. I found that the addition of baking powder made the bread rise more. It doesn’t raise alot- its more like a flat bread, as you can see in the pictures, but that’s okay with me. And I also tried waiting 30 mins before baking it- to see if it would rise. Nope. It was the same. So you can just go ahead and bake it right away. That makes it a pretty quick recipe. AND you don’t need anything fancy- I just used a fork for mashing and mixing. So simple!!
Also, I didn’t have any applesauce at home, so I just made my own. I have a recipe for applesauce here, or you can just do a mini version, which is what I did for this recipe. Also, you can certainly double or triple the recipe if you want to make a bigger batch. But I know that sometimes its nice just to have single serving things- that way its not a huge investment if you don’t like the recipe right? Not that you wouldn’t 😉

This would be so delicious with some butter melted on it.. but alas I don’t have butter. I might be buying some… Or you can eat it as is, or make yummy flatbread sandwiches- almond butter and apple slices would be incredible!!Let me know what you think!
