Easy Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

I love how easy it is to make this whole wheat bread recipe! I always have trouble with bread when it’s difficult to mix it or there’s a lot that you have to do with it before baking it.

But this bread is super simple from beginning to end. Also, it doesn’t use any sugar, just honey which can be substituted by other sweeteners.

Whole grains have been linked to numerous health benefits, including a decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

How to Make Whole Wheat Bread

For this recipe we add the warm water, yeast and honey to a small bowl. Add the bread flour, mix, and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes until it becomes bubbly.

Add the melted butter, honey, and salt in a large bowl. Pour the yeast mixture into the bowl and mix. Add the wheat flour and knead with your hands or use a bread hook in the bread machine. Keep adding 1 cup flour in at a time and mix. This is usually enough flour but if you need more, add in 1/2 cup increments up to 2 cups.

Coat a large bowl with oil and put dough in bowl to rise. Cover with a towel and let rise for about 1 to 1.5 hours. When it has risen over the bowl, punch it down and transfer to a floured surface.
