Easy Rye Bread

This easy rye bread recipe is so tasty and meal prep friendly. It’s a great and easy bread for breakfast and lunch. And it has a wonderful and light texture that locks in the moisture.

I love using this bread for lunch sandwiches. It’s a healthy alternative to traditional sandwich bread, and it’s just as delicious.

I’m always on the lookout for new and bread recipes that I can use to make a healthy sandwich. Although regular sandwich bread has its place, I tend to prefer a healthy version – but I’m not willing to compromise on lightness and taste.

One of the problems I often find with regular sandwich bread is, that it tends to go stale very quickly. This bread has solved that issue – it’s just as great the next day.

What’s great about this bread:

  • Meal prep friendly – can be frozen
  • Easy to make and very healthy
  • The ideal healthy sandwich bread

Vegan twist:
If you want to make a vegan version of this rye bread, just substitude the buttermilk for soy yoghurt. It creates a wonderful texture and taste that closely resembles the buttermilk.
