Bread Machine Honey-Whole Wheat Bread


A really great soft bread that we make in our bread machine. Perfect for kids, no preservatives, and can be made in the oven, too.

Prep Time:
10 mins
Cook Time:
45 mins
Total Time:
55 mins
1 loaf


  • 1 ½ cups warm water

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • ¼ cup raw honey

  • 3 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • ¼ cup flaxseed meal

  • ¼ cup vital wheat gluten

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 ½ tablespoons dry milk powder

  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast


  1. Place warm water, butter, honey, whole wheat flour, flaxseed meal, vital wheat gluten, salt, dry milk, and yeast in a bread machine in the order listed. Run a basic wheat bread cycle, but adjust the cook timer to cut baking time down by 25 to 30 minutes. I time the bread and take it out when I see that it is not yet brown. If you like a crusty bread you may let it cook the entire time.

  2. Remove loaf from the machine after the cycle is done.

Cook's Note:

Take bread out to cool. The "keep warm" function keeps your bread warm, but also continues to cook it! Set on counter. While still slightly warm, I bag my bread to keep it soft.
