A Slightly Healthier Beer Bread

In an attempt to make a healthier beer bread (i.e., a lower proportion of white flour), I spent the morning browsing recipes and came up with this one. The crust is lovely–super crunchy!

I gave it to J for lunch with some vegetarian chili and he pronounced it delicious:

And as I was stumbling about online looking for methods to sprout chia seeds (the sprouter doesn’t work for mucilaginous seeds…as I found out), I stumbled across this blog–The Happy Raw Kitchen–and couldn’t help but try these little cucumber cups. Mine are filled with a dot of sriracha, a scoop of hummus, a dot of salsa, and a little bunch of sprouts.
