Whole Wheat bread

Here's a recent recipe I used few times which yielded very soft and delicious bread loaves.
Ingredients for 4 bread loaves.


  • 8 cups whole wheat flour, sing Bob's Red Mill flour
  • 1 cup gluten flour
  • 2 Table spoons non-iodized salt
  • 2 cups flax seed meal, using Bob's Red Mill
  • 2 cups wheat bran, using Bob's Red Mill
  • 1 table spoon dough conditioner (optional)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 6 cups lukewarm water
  • 3 table spoons dry yeast
  • 1 table spoon sugar
  • 1 table spoon wheat flour (white or whole grain)

Using part3 ingredients, add yeast to water, whisk and let sit for 5min. Add sugar and wheat, which and set in warm place for 15min. If mix doesn't foam afetr 15min, your yeast is probably bad, discard and repeat with good yeast.
While proofing yeast, mix part1 ingredients in mixer for few minutes. Once yeast timing is completed, add yeast mix to mixer along with part2. Mix with spatula at low speed for dew seconds, switch to hook and mix at speed3(KitchenAid mixer) for 7 minutes.
Take dough to a greased bowl and let rise in warm location for 30min. Dump on table, press dough down with both palms to compact it. Form a ball and let rise again for 30min. Devide dough in 4 parts, roll each to 1 to 3/4in thick, form bread and lay in trays, let rise for 1h30m. Dough should raise at least 1in above trays edge. This timing will depend directly on the temperature, recommended 90F.
Bake for 20min, let cool before slicing.
