Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread (Bread Machine)


Mmmmmm…..the smell of fresh bread! I usually time my weekly loaf of bread to come out at lunch time.  There is nothing better than a PB&J on this warm bread =) with a glass of milk. 

I have experimented with so many recipes for a whole wheat sandwich bread that would come out just right.  Now, just right for each of us is different but this one is pretty close for us.  I have not changed up this recipe for a while now. So, I guess we are pretty happy with it.  We use this bread for toast, sandwiches (mostly grilled), French toast…..pretty much anything. 

Here is the recipe with a disclaimer Winking smile  I use this recipe at above 6,000 feet so you may need to adjust water and/or yeast.

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread


  • 4 cups  Whole Wheat Bread Flour (a hard red wheat is best for bread)
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 2 Tbls Ground Flax (optional)
  • 2 cups Warm Water
  • 2 tsps. Yeast
  • 1/4 cup Honey (raw, unfiltered & local is best)
  • 2 tsps. Fine Sea Salt
  • 3 Tbls Olive Oil


  1. Warm water and add yeast and honey in a glass cup or bowl and let sit for 3-5 min until frothy.
  2. In bread pan, add Sea Salt and Olive Oil
  3. Next, add water, yeast and honey mixture into bread pan.
  4. Add WW Flour, Oats and Flax if using
  5. Close bread machine and set for (depending on your bread machine options) 2 lb. loaf, Whole Wheat with light crust.

That’s it! Please do share any yummy, successful bread recipes your family enjoys.
