). In most bakeries you can find mainly croissants, croissants, dumplings, etc. made of white flour.
So if you still do not want to give up sweet pastries for breakfast, we have a suitable recipe for you. It comes from the bread baker with passion Cilli Reisinger.
Besides, with homemade, you don’t just know what’s in it. It also tastes better!

ingredientsSpelt croissants for breakfast

  • 400 g wholemeal spelt flour (best with a
    Salzburg grain mill
    freshly ground)
  • 400 g spelt flour
  • 300 ml water (lukewarm)
  • 30 g yeast
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Preparation of the spelt croissants

Dissolve the yeast and honey in 100 ml of the lukewarm water and let rest for 10 minutes. Then add the remaining ingredients and knead into a dough. The yeast dough should now rise for another 45 minutes.

Now knead the dough briefly and form croissants. Place the spelt croissants on a baking tray (with baking paper) and let them rise for another half hour.

The oven can then be preheated to 210°C. Brush the croissants with a little water and bake for about 20-25 minutes.

Let your spelt croissants cool for breakfast and enjoy.

We wish you a great start to the day!
