Lighter Whole Wheat Bread for Machines

Started off with the recipes in the book that came with the bread machine, but it was either me or the book - the loaves tasted OK, but were denser than a bowling ball. Trial and error got me to this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine everything except the water and the yeast in the machine's bucket.
  2. Add the water to the bucket (it's just got to be last).
  3. If your machine's like ours, empty the yeast packet into the top, and set the machine for regular"bake" (not rapid), large loaf (not extra large), whole wheat setting (5 hours on our machine).
