Classic whole grain multi-grain bread recipe

Categories

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.

  1. Wow. I have to make that recipe asap. Do you have a spelt bread recipe? I love your site. It’s really neat. I loved how detailed you were with instructions and pictures to go with it. Usually if there’s no photos I get confused. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    • Thank you! This is my passion and I appreciate your complement. I do have a spelt bread recipe. I will be sure to add it for you to look at. Let me know how you like the bread after you make it! ❤

  2. Awesome recipe, ma’am!!

    I’m not a baker but I’ve always wanted to know how to bake bread and we love all things organic! LOVE your site, its going in my bookmarks right now.

    If I wanted to add chia seeds or flax seeds, would I need to add more water as well? And at what point should I add them?

    • Thank You. You can add seeds if you like, just decrease the flour by 1/4 cup. Add the seeds in the beginning when you do the liquid. This will give them a min to soak.
