When I eat bread, it’s 99 percent of the time rye bread. In Denmark, we are known for our rye bread and we normally eat it for lunch, when making open sandwiches. Rye is high in fibre and therefore keeps you full for a very long time.
Rye bread keeps you going for a looong time
When I eat these rye bread muffin in the morning, I am not hungry until late in the afternoon, which makes it perfect for those days, where you are constantly on the go and don’t have time to eat a proper meal sitting down.
For this recipe I used a high quality dark chocolate with a very high percentage of cocoa (80 percent), and I enjoyed them with a layer of almond butter, which is highly recommendable!
