Rice bread is one of the healthiest and tastiest types of bread that many dieters swear by. It’s nutrient-dense, low in calories and sugars, and it keeps you full and energetic longer than other types of bread. It goes well with fresh and steamed veggies, fruit, butter, cheese, and guacamole.
You can opt for just any kind of rice in these chewy bread recipes, albeit it’s considered that brown and black kinds are the healthiest ones. 100 grams of rice bread provides your body with about 20% of your daily recommended intake of magnesium, 15% of vitamin B6, 19% of iron, 6% of calcium, 9 grams of protein, 5 grams of dietary fiber, and about 215 mg of potassium.
To reap all these nutrients, try out the following rice bread recipes for a bread maker.
