This is not your momma’s stuffing recipe because it is a sprouted whole wheat stuffing…not traditional!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and this year, when my mother asked me what dish I would like to bring for Thanksgiving dinner, I offered to make the stuffing.

So I made the choice to make stuffing from scratch….and that includes using a loaf of homemade sprouted bread….yum! I wanted to test this recipe first so that I could make any adjustments necessary, but it was SO much better than any bagged or boxed stuffing, that my taste buds were in heaven! It is moist and rich and wonderful.

Using sprouted wheat bread is much easier on the digestive system because it lowers the amount of gluten in the bread. Sprouting also reduces the phytonutrients that bind to minerals and don’t allow the body to absorb them. I will say that this recipe is a bit labor-intensive. I’m not gonna lie! Because I worked with homemade bread, it took quite a bit of time. You could use store-bought sprouted bread for this if you are looking for an easier recipe!

Everyone loved how this sprouted whole wheat stuffing turned out! It was nice and moist and very tasty too! It was definitely worth the extra time it took to make it!
