This Whole Grain Sandwich Bread was made for the upcoming lunchboxes we all will be making whether it is going back to school or work… I added hummus to this recipe to add some depth. In lieu of making sandwiches, you could also toast it up and add your favorite toppings like avocado, more hummus, tomato, black beans, and goat cheese. Dang, that sounds pretty good!

There isn’t much else better than a loaf of freshly baked bread straight out of the oven. This particular bread was made specifically for healthier sandwich bread for the upcoming school year.

It’s August which means that kids are heading back to school.

Not only are kids heading back to school, but teachers are heading back and so are adult students like me.

If you are anything like me, you see September as a new start. If you’ve fallen back into bad habits this summer because of endless adventures or summer vacations then you are looking to get back into a routine. And why not make whole grain sandwich bread a part of it?

This bread is loaded with whole grains and a flavorful ingredient that consists of chickpeas and tahini: Hummus. Sabra Hummus has many flavors to choose from. This bread was made with their Jalapeno flavor which made it really spicy but you can use whichever flavor rocks your world.

Soooo I had no idea you could make bread from hummus....so cool! I feel like this bread would be awesome in a savory French toast dish. My husband loves Sabra so I'm sue he would go crazy over this. {Totally unrelated to this bread: I miss you!}
