Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Recipe by startnover

I started grinding my own wheat and making homemade wheat bread about three years ago. I love this recipe. It makes four loaves of bread, which sounds like a lot unless you have four kids. Also it freezes great. I slice mine, put it in a plastic bread bag, and zip it in a freezer bag. It's good up to one month. I've had problems with homemade wheat bread crumbling, not so with this recipe. Another thing I've found to make a tasty bread use 1/2 hard white wheat flour and 1/2 hard red wheat flour if you can.Hope you enjoy.

I LOVE this bread! I started grinding my grain a few months ago, and have been making it ever since. I too have 4 kiddos, and we go through it extremely quickly. I use agave instead of honey, and coconut oil for the oil. Yummy!
