Bake the Best Whole Wheat & Honey Bread


As I’m writing this post, I have two loaves of this yummy whole wheat & honey bread rising in my oven. I’ve gotten into the habit of making a couple loaves every week or more lately, and we use it for our morning toast or sandwiches throughout the week. It’s the best 100% whole wheat

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp rapid rise yeast
  • 4 cups warm water
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 9-10 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of quick oats or flaxseed (or a combination of the two)


Directions:

  1. Sprinkle the yeast in the bowl of your KitchenAid mixer.
  2. Slowly add 4 cups of warm water and 2/3 cups of honey, and mix gently until the yeast dissolves. Let the yeast mixture sit for about 5 minutes until you see that the yeast is starting to foam.
  3. With the regular paddle attachment on your mixer, slowly add in 4 cups of the flour, the salt, and the oats/flaxseed as you mix the dough on the lowest setting of your mixer. Mix until combined, scraping the edges of the bowl if needed.
