Quick and Super Easy Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

Before jumping into the recipe, let’s talk about a few important points when making this amazing recipe.

First, you will have the chance to bake bread in only ONE HOUR total!!! I've tried many recipes before finally deciding that it can’t get any better or quicker than this. Most of the other recipes require a lot of time kneading, rising, and even experience to know the tricks to make it truly work. But that’s not what I was looking for.

I wanted to make a bread recipe that wasn’t absolutely loaded on butter, sugar, or oils. They’re yummy ingredients but they sure add extra calories to the bread! I wanted to find one that it wasn’t going to make me feel guilty, yet that it was absolutely delicious. Let’s destroy that idea that bread makes you fat!!! 

Lastly, it’s so versatile! You can make it into loaves (4), burger buns (12-18), hotdog buns, or anything you want to do with them. I even made it into a snake shape for my daughter’s birthday and made sandwiches with it! The key is to make the portions small (don’t make 2 fat loaves, they won’t cook right).

So, if it’s your first time making bread, this is the recipe for you!!!

We love it because it takes no time, it’s a very simple and forgiving recipe, & it tastes phenomenal!


  • 4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 2 1/4 C of warm water
  • 5 C of whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • some olive oil for the bowl


In a bowl add the yeast, sugar, and the lukewarm water. Whisk well and let it sit for 3 minutes or until you see a foamy top. That will indicate if your yeast is active or not. 

Add the flour and mix. Once it’s homogeneous, add the salt and knead well. Add a bit of oil to another bowl and spread it with your fingers over the walls. Transfer the dough into it, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rise for 35 mins, in a warm place ideally.

Let the oven reach 425 degrees.

Punch the dough down to get the air out and start making the buns. In any baking sheet, spread some flour and put the buns on it (or use parchment paper).
Cut a line on top of each bun with a sharp knife without pushing the dough down.

Bake for 9 mins. For a softer bread, don’t let it get too golden. Done!!!

A little secret: add a pan with water at the bottom of the oven while it’s warming up to create a moist environment. It will give the buns that nice crust!
