Whole Wheat Bread Recipe For Breadmaker

Breadmaker Bread

Years ago I was given my Husband’s Grandma’s breadmaker and a recipe book which included this whole wheat bread recipe for breadmaker. It collected dust for a while then I’d pull it out and use it. Back to the closet. Rinse and repeat until about 3 months ago when I decided to take a huge step and cleaned our house out of anything with 5 ingredients or more.

Mac n Cheese: toss
Boxed crackers: toss
Bread with 10 ingredients I can’t pronounce and it lasts for 4 weeks without refrigeration? TOSS TOSS TOSS!

Yeah when I do something, I go ALL in and so guess what moved upstairs and got dusted off? This time though it’s in an easy-to-reach closet and is now out once or twice a week as besides being less processed to make, if I’m going to do this we’re doing it on a budget and whole wheat breadmaker bread is just wayyyyyyyyyyyy cheaper. I use Bob’s Red Mill’s whole wheat flour and honey and boy oh boy is it yummy and still less than $1 a loaf. I always make the biggest size I can and yet when I serve it with butter (real butter with less than 5 ingredients!) then it goes re-ally quick!

  1. Claire! I have just started baking my own bread. I’m not supposed to eat it, but I can’t stand the idea of the kids eating the store bought stuff! I’ve made 3 loaves so far, and still trying to perfect my recipe… or find a better one. Then looky what I find here. I’ll definitely be trying this. I’ll let you know if it’s Kid Approved ;-)

    what setting do you bake this on? I am very interested in this

  3. Christina says:

    I made this today and it was like a half load. Is it supposed to look like that?

    • Mine makes over a half loaf but my breadmaker couldn’t handle more for the dough. You could always double the recipe if your breadmaker allows. Hope that helps!

  4. What setting do you use if cooking in crockpot?
