1/1 Photo of Whole Wheat Bread
This recipe uses no refined products and is very healthy to eat. I order my whole berries from a co-op and grind my wheat yourself. I think it tastes better when you grind your wheat yourself but if you don't have a mill you can still buy the whole wheat flour at the store. I also mix my bread up in a Bosch mixer. If you don't have a mixer like a Bosch, DLX or a Kitchenaid you can do it by hand.
