※ I used sobacha and was particular about other ingredients in order to create healthy bread this time.
※ Sobacha: Sobacha is caffeine-free so can be drank at night to relax before going to bed. It is known as kenko-cha 健康茶 (health tea) in Japanese, categorized as tisane in the west, that can be enjoyed by children and/or pregnant women. Other than drinking as is, you can add sobacha when cooking rice, soup, or baking cookies; it will add an extra toasty flavor to the dish.
※ Wheat bran: Hard outer layer of wheat grain and is often used as an alternative for flour. Just like brown (unpolished) rice, it is abundant in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibers. Compared to flour, wheat bran is rich in carbohydrate.
