Gluten-Free Vollkornbrot (German Bread)
Hearty, chewy, and nutritious, groats are minimally processed whole grains; here, they're used to add heft and crunch to Ava Celik's gluten-free, whole-grain German bread. Gently sweetened with molasses, this dense German bread gets a boost of flavor from a mix of toasted sunflower, flax, pumpkin, and sesame seeds. It's so flavorful you don't really need to top it with anything. (But if you want to, it's great with marmalade.) "I love to toast it, though all seeds are already toasted to maximize flavors," Celik says. "It provides you with lots of energy to get you through the day. One slice is super packed with proteins, and it's a great snack if you're doing lots of sports, like me!"
