I am sure many of you out there have heard how bad processed white bread is and the many health benefits of multi-grain bread. The only problem, whole grain breads are expensive and if you go through as much bread as we do it adds up quick. Not only is my multi-grain bread recipe cost a lot less to make yourself, but it’s healthy! No preservatives, no gmos, no dyes , only raw organic ingredients. The true definition of clean food.
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 tablespoon of yeast
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup of rye flour
- 3 cups of whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup of wheat germ
Add the water and milk into the bowl of your stand mixer, add the yeast; allow to sit for 5 mins.
Add your egg and rye flour, turn on your mixer. As it is mixing slowly add the olive oil. Add the rye and whole wheat flour and wheat germ as it is kneading slowly, 1 cup at a time. Allow your mixer to knead until a soft, not sticky, dough is formed. If you do end up with sticky dough slowly add 1 cup of all purpose flour.
Once your dough is formed allow it to rise until doubled. Punch down and knead on a greased counter top, then cut into 2 equal halfs.
Take each half and form into a long, rectangle shape and place in greased bread pans.
Let rise until doubled in size. Bake at 375 for 30 mins.
There you have it all you beautiful people. Tasty classic multi-grain bread. Comments, questions or concerns drop them below!
