This very easy bread requires ZERO kneading, yet the result is a nice high risen moist and crumbly loaf. Recipe from Power Eating.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cereal and boiling water in a microwavable bowl, set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir honey and oil into the cereal; heat until hot (about 125-130°F or 50-55°C).
  3. In a separate large bowl, mix 1 cup whole wheat flour with the all purpose flour, oat bran, yeast, sugar and salt.
  4. Beat in hot cereal mixture and egg.
  5. Using electric mixer beat for 2 minutes at high speed.
  6. Stir in enough remaining whole wheat flour to make a stiff batter.
  7. With floured hands, pat dough in a 9x5 sprayed or lightly greased loaf pan.
  8. Cover lightly with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel; let rise until doubled, 40-60 minutes.
  9. Remove wrap, bake at 375°F 35-40 minutes or until bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  10. Remove from pan, cool on a rack.

I made this into rolls. They were fabulous. Instead of all-purpose flour I used whole wheat pastry flour. As I always do with whole grain breads I substituted wheat gluten for 1/4 cup of the flour.

This was a tasty and healthy bread. The kids did not love it and we did not finish the entire loaf before it went stale. I made croutons with the leftovers. Thanks for the recipe.

This is an excellent bread, and I loved how it did not require kneading. I'm going to try it with all whole wheat flour next time. Thanks.
