I love clean eating recipes and my crock pot which spurred me to make Clean Eating Crock Pot Bread. This week I blogged Whole Wheat Bread recipe for the Breadmaker. It’s 6 ingredients and as long as you use a real wheat flour or grind your own, it’s clean eating baby! So you don’t have a breadmaker or it’s super hot where you live? Then ditch the oven and crock pot it! Here’s how:

Clean Eating Crock Pot Bread Ingredients

* This makes a 1.5 pound loaf – I wouldn’t make any less!

1 1/4 cups of milk
1 tsp yeast
1 TBS butter
3 cups of whole wheat flour
2 TBS honey
3/4 tsp salt


  1. Add the above ingredients to your mixer and make dough with the dough handle. I have started to make an extra loaf of dough and wrap it well in saran wrap and store in the freezer for another day.
  2. Take the dough and set aside while you prep your pot.
  3. Add a piece of parchment paper to the bottom of your crock pot and grease with coconut oil.
  4. Place the dough in the bottom of the pot.
  5. Cook on low for about 1.5 hours, checking periodically without removing the lid.
  6. At about 1 hour mine still looked doughy.
  7. Remove and enjoy!

As well as clean eating I’ve started using Essential Oils a TON in our family. They’ve cleared my Husband’s sinuses and  If you’ve got allergies these oils are amazing for those and you can see how to use here.  They’re also helping my kids sleep more at night!  Check out all these amazing uses:

I bought the Premier Starter Kit which includes 11 oils, 1 sweet diffuser and some samples plus a product guide. After that your oils are 24% off retail and not expensive! For example Lavender which is a natural anti-histamine us just $23.50 for a 15ml bottle which has about 200 drops in and helps HUGE with allergies and with sleep! When you’re only using 1-2 drops per time this little bottle is going to last you a long time.

purchase the Premier Starter Kit here and I’ll send you a FREE Copy of this Essential Oils reference guide that I think is an indispensable source of information!

  1. Gotta try this!! 🙂

  2. Oh my, I wish I had some of that bread right now, with a big slathering of butter!!!

  3. So if we don’t have a breadmaker, how do we make the dough? Does the dough need to be kneaded?

  4. If I double the recipe and freeze half, do I have to thaw it before cooking?

  5. I made the dough without the bread maker. I let it sit for about 45 minutes before I messed with it but it was really super sticky. I managed to get it into the crock pot, but not in the nice roll you crafted. Mine just kind of went everywhere. It’s baking now, but I’m not sure how it will turn out. I’ll let you know!

  6. I made the bread without the bread maker as well and it turned out just fine consistency wise … I think next time I will try warming up the milk first to proof the yeast … It did take a lot longer to cook in the slow cooker for me (could be my slow cooker or maybe because the dough was cold and didn’t warm up much … definitely going to warm the milk next time 😉 ) … Really good though! I will be making again 🙂

  7. So, if you make the dough in the bread maker why not just bake it in there too?

    • You totally can Tami but I wanted to try the crock pot too! Quite often I’ll keep dough in my freezer and then instead of using the breadmaker use the crockpot. This is great if you don’t have a breadmaker 🙂

    I will be attempting this recipe sans a breadmaker. From reading the above comments, doesn’t seem too difficult, although I do have one question. In addition to warming the milk before adding, will I need to let the dough rest for approximately 45 mins. after kneading and before putting it in the crockpot?


  9. Just made this recipe last night!

    Modifications to basic recipe:
    -Used 2 cups whole wheat and 1 cup all-purpose flour
    -Didn’t use a bread maker at all; let dough sit for about 40 minutes prior to turning on the crock
    -Heated milk and butter in pan together prior to mixing

    Also… We made this dough and split it in half; one regular and one cinnamon sugar. For the cinnamon sugar bread, we rolled out the dough and sprinkled a healthy amount of sugar & cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg. We sat them side by side in the crock pot and it became a two-sided loaf.

    Hubby and I are very happy with it! Thanks!

  10. I thought this recipe was for someone who did not have a breadmaker, and then the recipe says put ingredients in a bread maker?

  11. Do I have to mix it in a bread machine?! I don’t have one and wondering if I could just mix the ingredients in my mixer and then put the dough in the crockpot

  12. When you cook bread doesnt the top come out moist or sticky?

  13. I’ve tried making this bread twice and mine doesn’t turn out nice and smooth on the top. It’s all rough and twisted looking. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Do I have to blend the flour first?

  14. Reena jain says:

    This bread looks very yummy and making it in a crock pot is very clever idea. I have one question – how much total time it took in crock pot to make this bread ? Please let me know. Thanks

    • Hey Reena, it took mine 1.5 hours but yours may be different as all crock pots are. You could just test after 1.5 hrs and see but note that when you remove the lid you do lose the heat so if you need to put back in do it for at least 30 minutes. 🙂 Thanks for the comment!

  15. Genevieve says:

    Excited to try this! My cheap oven doesn’t seem very good with bread (or maybe it’s just me…).
    Can I use spelt or buckwheat flour? I have both bleached and unbleached spelt, buckwheat, or plain white, atm.

    • I would try but the ratios are going to be different and sadly i haven’t tried them to know, sorry!

      • This bread is AMAZING! I love it and do not have bread machine so the crock pot worked great! I have one question. Using the exact ingredients in your recipe do you know the nutritional value of the recipe by any chance? Thank you! ***I don’t think I will ever be able to eat a loaf of bread from the store again!!!! 🙂

  16. Can this be made with other flours for a gluten free version? And if so, does the amount of flour change?

  17. i have never made bread before and do not have a bread machine. I am anxious to make this in the crockpot. What kind of yeast do I need to use? Dry Active or RapidRise?

    Thank you

  18. Would like to know… do you activate the yeast in warm water/milk prior to adding it to the other ingredients, or just put it in there dry?

  19. I love this recipe! I make it all the time. Thank you so much for sharing! I have made a few tweaks recently that I felt make it a bit lighter. For one, I warm the milk and proof the yeast to help it rise a bit, and I add a bit of dough enhancer. I also started using 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup white, again to make it lighter and not so dense. But all in all it’s a great recipe! I shared my version of it on my blog with a link back to this original one 🙂
