Mix & Rest

To make this No Knead Whole Wheat Bread simply place your whole wheat flour, white flour, yeast, salt and vital wheat gluten in a mixing bowl and whisk together.

Then add the water, honey, eggs, olive oil and vinegar directly to the dry ingredients and mix together. Make sure that all the dry ingredients are mixed in but do not kneed the dough.

Cover loosely and let rise in a warm place for at least 2 hours. You can use the dough now or refrigerate for later.

Shape & Rise

When you are ready to bake, spread a little bit of olive oil around in a loaf pan to grease it. 

Sprinkle your dough with a bit of flour, enough to handle the dough without it sticking to your hands. Quickly shape the dough into a ball by stretching the surface of the dough from top to bottom, turning and stretching as you go.

Then gently elongate the ball into an oval and then fold the dough lengthwise into thirds. Then place in the loaf pan with the fold on the bottom. Cover loosely and allow to rise for about 40 minutes. If you are using refrigerated dough then allow to rise at room temperature for at least 90 minutes.

Bake

Preheat your oven to 350°. Bake your loaf for about 40-45 minutes or until it is golden brown and sounds hollow when your tap it. Remove it from the pan and allow to cool completely before cutting.

Tips

Make sure to use lukewarm water. Test it by dipping your finger tip in, it should feel about the same as your body temperature. Too hot and it will kill the yeast.

Let your bread cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. The steam will loosen the bread and help it slide right out of the pan.
