  • 1 Tbsp dry instant yeast (quick rising works, too)
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 Tbsp honey OR any sweetener
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil OR applesauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cup whole wheat flour (White wheat works best, but red wheat works too.)


  1. MIX yeast, water, sweetener, oil, and salt into bowl.
  2. ADD two cups flour and mix gently.
  3. ADD one – two cups flour OR as needed to make a sticky dough consistency. (Use less, if not using oil or applesauce.)

  4. SET aside for 15 minutes to allow flour to absorb and for the dough to start rising.
  5. DIVIDE into two loaves with well-floured hands.

  6. PUT both balls of dough onto an oiled cookie sheet, one on each side.

  7. RISE until double, while cookie sheet is sitting on the stove.

  8. PREHEAT oven to 425F while bread is rising. The heat will speed up the process and then your oven will be hot when the bread is ready.

  9. BAKE at 400F for 10 minutes.
  10. REDUCE heat to 375F and BAKE for 15-20 more minutes, or until golden.

  11. REMOVE from oven and cool on a rack.
