Simply Nature Organic Flourless Sprouted Grain Bread

When I was growing up, pre-sliced bread from the grocery store came in two varieties: white and wheat. There weren’t a lot of other options. Now we can choose from a variety of breads tailored to specific diets, such as gluten-free, organic, keto, low-calorie, sprouted grains, and yes, flourless sprouted grain bread. I like to buy bread that has more fiber and protein than the breads I grew up eating, so I’ve tried a number of healthier varieties.

Simply Nature Organic Flourless Sprouted Grain Bread

Recently, I spotted the Simply Nature Organic Flourless Sprouted Grain Bread in the freezer section at one of my local Aldi stores, although I’ve also found it in the room-temperature bakery aisle at another local Aldi. I’ve often bought the Simply Nature Sprouted 7 Grain Bread in the store’s bakery section, and I’ve had flourless breads from other retailers, but this was the first time I’d seen this type of bread at Aldi.

The orange packaging strongly resembles a popular name brand, Ezekiel 4:9 flourless sprouted grain bread, which is also sold frozen. However, the Ezekiel 4:9 bread is $6.49 for a 24-ounce loaf at my local Whole Foods, while the Aldi version is $2.79 for a 24-ounce loaf. That means that the Aldi Simply Nature Organic Flourless Sprouted Grain Bread is about 14 cents per slice compared to 32 cents per slice for the name-brand bread.

Flourless sprouted grain breads are made by soaking whole grains until they develop sprouts. Then they’re mashed or ground into a puree, usually leavened with yeast, and baked. Sprouted grains are easier to digest and more nutritious than traditional flours.

I didn’t see this bread advertised, but it doesn’t appear among the year-round Regular Buys on the Aldi website, so it may be an Aldi Find and only available for a limited time. If any readers have any insight on whether this is a Regular Buy or a limited-time Aldi Find, feel free to leave a comment below. If this is an Aldi Find, it means you can’t order it online if it’s not in stock at your local Aldi.

I should note that although this bread is made without flour, it is not gluten-free. It contains wheat, and the package also warns that it may contain sesame seeds. There are no preservatives or added sugar, and the ingredients are organic sprouted wheat, organic sprouted grains and legumes (whole grain barley, whole grain millet, whole lentils, whole grain spelt, whole garbanzo beans), organic wheat gluten, organic malted barley, yeast, cultured wheat, and salt.

Nutrition information and ingredients. (Click to enlarge.)

Nutritionally, one slice of this bread offers 80 calories, 0.5 grams of fat, 14 grams of carbohydrates (with 4 grams of fiber), and an impressive 5 grams of protein per slice, as well as many vitamins and minerals. It only has 80 mg of sodium, so it qualifies as a low-sodium food, for those watching their salt intake. Overall, it’s probably the healthiest bread I’ve bought at Aldi.

The bread is dense and chewy like a good-quality whole grain bread, and it toasts well. However, my husband commented that it wasn’t as flavorful or as chewy as the Ezekiel 4:9 bread. I agree that it’s a little bland, which isn’t surprising given the low amount of sodium it contains. I tried topping it with Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning to give it a little more kick, and that helped. My husband enjoyed it with peanut butter. Given its fiber and protein content, two slices plus some Greek yogurt with berries made a very filling breakfast.

The Verdict:

This bread is healthier than most grocery-store pre-sliced breads. It contains no preservatives, which is why you might find it in the frozen section, but some stores may stock it in the bakery aisle. Because of that, I recommend keeping it in the fridge or freezer. It’s a little plain-tasting, but it’s good with butter, peanut butter, or other flavorful toppings. I recommend it if you’re looking for affordable, healthy bread for you and your family.

  1. I just tasted this bread and agree with your review. Do you know if this replaces Aldi’s protein bread? The protein bread hasn’t been in my store for a few weeks. Thanks.

  2. I asked and was told it was a limited time product. The employee said it wasn’t selling and they donated the loaves. I think it’s great and am sorry it won’t be on the shelves on a regular basis.

  3. I’m so glad Aldi carries sprouted bread. I have nutrition education and sprouted bread is by far the healthiest bread. Though not suitable for those with celiac disease or a wheat allergy, many who are intolerant to wheat can tolerate it sprouted. I always refrigerate or freeze the bread and sometimes will wrap slices in a damp paper towel and warm it to soften it.

  4. I’d like to know the Glyphosate levels in this one. Ezekiel bread is Biochecked to zero or close, but Simply Nature bread is half the price. We all know what that means, you get what you pay for.

    • Ohh I see the biocheck label on that one. My local Aldi stores have multiple different styles of sprouted bread including Simply Nature but none of them are labelled Glyphosate Free unfortunately. They must have removed the designation :(.

  5. Where can I find Knock your sprouts off bread in an Aldi near me?

  6. I loved this Flourless bread and sad it won’t be there all the time.
