Delicious Honey Whole Wheat Bread...mmmmm

So, for a nice slice of warm Honey Whole Wheat Bread, there are only 100 calories. There are 21 carbohydrates, 1 gram of fat and 3 grams of protein. I love warm, whole wheat bread...and now I know it is a healthy snack as well. This recipe is found on page 52 of the cookbook. So, just jot it down in the margin and now you know what to calculate each time you eat a slice of bread.

Delicious Honey Whole Wheat Bread

This recipe came from Kitchen Kneads in Ogden Utah and it is THE BEST whole wheat bread recipe!

6 C lukewarm water

1 C honey (I sometimes use 11⁄4 C)

1⁄4 C vegetable oil


2 T dough enhancer

3 T gluten

15-18 C whole wheat flour

2 T yeast

Pour water and honey into mixer and add vegetable oil and salt. Add dough enhancer, gluten, ground flax and 14 C whole wheat flour. Add yeast on top of the flour and then add one more cup of whole wheat flour to cover the yeast. Mix and add flour until dough is not sticky and no longer sticking to the bowl. Knead for 12 minutes. Turn dough onto counter and roll into 5-6 loaves of bread. Let rise for about 30 min. to an hour. Don't let it get over 1 inch over your bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. This bread is great for the whole family and my kids LOVE it!

You can easily half this recipe to make just 2-3 loaves of bread, if your mixer is smaller.

This bread also freezes EXTREMELY well. I freeze it in a freezer bag every time I make it and get it out the night before I need more bread and slice it up and it tastes freshly baked!
