Whole Wheat Bread

With Added Grains!


As you may know, I love my bread machine. I use it almost weekly to make pizza dough. Lately, in an effort to obtain a healthier lifestyle, I started making my own bread.


The last time I calculated the total cost per loaf was roughly $0.49. I love that price!

Right now I've been making Whole Wheat Bread, using this recipe:



It makes a great base to work with, especially when adding grains and nuts.

I found that I have to add a splash more water than directed.

Otherwise the dough is too dry.


I'll regularly add in a sprinkle of the following items to add fiber and protein:

  • Chia Seeds

  • Flax Seeds

  • Sunflower Seeds

  • Pepitas

  • Almonds

  • Walnuts

Or pretty much any other grains/nuts I have on hand.

As long as you don't over do it on the sprinkling, the bread turns out dense, but delicious and full of good ingredients!!


I score my bread, with this recipe it isn't really necessary because it doesn't have the best rise (or at least that I can manage).

But I like the aesthetic :)

So I score my bread.

Before Rise


After Rise

Make sure before baking, you let your bread rise. It takes roughly 25-35 minutes.


After the bread rises, put it in the oven at around 335F for 25 minutes or so. When you take the bread out of the oven, you should be able to 'knock' on the crust. To make it softer like a sandwich bread, add some melted butter or oil on top.

This is what it looks like when it's done baking.


And this is the inside.

It's dense and highly nutritious! :)




I normally store one loaf in the refrigerator while in use and the other in the freezer to prevent it from going stale.


If you have any tips on how to improve the rise (I know many people recommend using both bleached and whole wheat flour) I'm all ears! Feel free to add your suggestions in the comment section.
