I make this every week because this is the only bread my sweetie will eat. I guess you could put this in a breadmaker but since it's so simple,I just use my mixer and bake it in the oven. I found this in one of my southbeach diet cookbooks and just tweeked it a bit - who says diet food isn't tasty.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c
    water (at room temperature)
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2 Tbsp
    sugar substitute
  • 3 1/2 c
    whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp
    gluten flour
  • 1/2 c
    walnuts chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp
    kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp

How to Make WHOLE WHEAT LOAF

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, combine the water, oil, sugar substiture, whole wheat flour, gluten flour, walnuts, salt & yeast to form a rough dough. Let the dough stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Place the dough on a lightly floured board and knead or about 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
    OR
    Turn mixer back on and "kneed" for 10 minutes. Personally I like this method better.
  3. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and place in a warm spot to rise. Should be double in size in roughly 1 hour.
  4. Remove from the bowl and punch down the dough. Shape into a loaf and put into oiled bread pan. You can either cover with a damp cloth or spray with "PAM" (occasionally the bread will stick to the cloth during this rise so I tend to just spray so it doesn't get hard). Put in a warm spot to rise. This rise can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on where you place the loaf to rise.
  5. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
