Whole Wheat Bread Recipe…..


….and one other Fave!

This is a great basic whole wheat bread recipe. I make 4 loaves at a time in my bosch mixer. It turns out great…every time!

whole wheat bread

Yields 5-6 loaves


2/3 C honey
2/3 C oil
6 C warm water
3 TB Saf Instant Yeast
1 1/2 – 2 TB Real Salt
16-20 C fresh whole wheat flour
3 TB Dough Enhancer

1/3-1/2 Cup Vital Wheat Gluten

I often do not use the gluten and sometimes even leave out the dough enhancer.

After kneading, bake@ 350 degrees for 45 minutes

Here is the website that has some great recipes and info on bread making (and if you need more technical help on the recipe):

We use this recipe a lot. In the brackets are the measurements I use for a large and hungry family! Even then it doesn’t last long enough! 🙂

3 cups oats     (12 cups)

1/2 cup flour, barley or whole wheat    (2 cups)

1/3 cup sunflower seeds    (1 1/2 cups)

1/3 cup sesames seeds, hulled   (1 1/2 cups)

1/3 cup almonds, slivered    (1 1/2 cups)

1/4 cup pecans    (1 cup)

1/4 tsp. sea salt    (1 tsp.)


1/4 cup maple syrup – or other liquid sweetener    (2 cups)

1/4 cup canola oil    (1 cup…I use a mixture of melted butter and light tasting oil from the health store)

1. Mix dry ingredients.

2. Mix liquid ingredients and stir into the dry ingredients.

3. Spread on lightly oiled cookie sheet. Bake at 275 degrees until done. Stir every 10 minutes. Watch so it doesn’t burn.

I add my dried fruit after the granola cools off (raisins, dried blueberries, etc.)
