Sweet Potato Millet Bread for #BreadBakers

Thank you for sharing!

Sweet Potato Millet BreadIt’s been a few months, but I am back to participating in Bread Bakers – a group of bread baking food bloggers. Pavani of Cook’s Hideout is hosting this month with the theme of healthy breads. For this month, I made a 100% whole grain sweet bread. It’s just barely sweet so perfect for breakfast; not the cloying sweetness of some sweet breads where they taste more like cake than bread. This Sweet Potato Millet Bread is perfect to start the day with, along with your morning cup of coffee

I baked it in small pans which is why my slices are so small, trying to exercise portion control. We’ll see if it works – 🙂 However, you can bake it in a regular loaf pan.

Check out the Healthy Breads that our fellow #BreadBakers have baked this month:

#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely bread by following our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated after each event on the #BreadBakers home page.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. If you are a food blogger and would like to join us, just send Stacy an email with your blog URL to [email protected].
