Cost $1.75 per loaf


  • 2 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water give or take


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan with olive oil.
  • Measure 1/4 cup of lukewarm water and mix it together with the yeast and honey. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer with a dough hook, combine the flour, salt, and olive oil. Slowly add the yeast/water mixture, and then slowly add about a cup of lukewarm water. Stop when the dough begins to come together into a ball.
  • Put the ball of dough in a non-reactive bowl and let it rise for 60 to 90 minutes (use the longer time if the air temperature is cool).
  • Form the ball into a rectangle and transfer it into the loaf pan. Allow it to rise close to the top of the pan (about another 60 to 90 minutes).
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
