Chewy easy no wait whole wheat bread

Amazing recipe I found for hearty easy healthy bread 

recipe and photo from hiddenfruitsandveggies.com

  • 4 ½ c white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional: extra for top)
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds (optional: extra for top)
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tsp dry active yeast
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ½ c water, warm to the touch
  1. Prepare a bread/loaf pan by lining with parchment paper. Perfectly fitting to the an is not necessary as the dough will help weigh it down and expand to fill out the pan.
  2. Combine flour, salt, sesame seeds, flax, and sugar. Make a small well and add yeast. Mix vinegar and water, and pour into flour mixture. Stir until well combined. The dough will be sticky, no need to knead.
  3. Spoon the dough into the loaf pan. Smooth the top with the back of a spoon. Top with extra seeds, if desired.
  4. Place loaf pan into a cold oven. Set oven to 350° F (Yes! You will preheat the oven with the bread inside). Bake for one hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Let cool and slice.
Looking to lower the calories? Feel free to swap out the seeds for other favorites or leave out entirely to save ~55 calories a slice! Depending on the size/shape of your loaf pan, you might get more or fewer slices of bread out of one loaf.
