I was always afraid to try to make homemade bread because of the kneading process. After all, what mom really has time for all of that kneading? The I found a delicious whole wheat bread recipe and a friend showed me a genius solution to the kneading issue.

Easy Whole Wheat Bread
I always wanted to make my own bread. The idea sounded so domestic. Then I started homeschooling and I was issued a grain mill along with my denim jumper. Not really. I was only kidding. I did, however, first learn about buying wheat in bulk and grinding it at home to make bread at the first homeschool co-op I attended.
When I heard that I could make my own, healthier bread, for only $0.50 per loaf, I was nearly sold. The only think standing between me and fresh baked goodness was the kneading process. Then a friend told me that a bread machine could do all of that for me.
Whole Wheat Bread Recipe
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 tsp salt
1/8 cup oil
1/8 cup honey (Add more honey for sweeter tasting bread.)
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (store bought or grind you own for huge health benefits and cost savings!)
1/4 cup gluten flour
1 tsp yeast
Layer ingredients in order in a 2lb loaf bread machine. Set to “dough only” setting and press start. When dough process is complete, put the dough ball into a greased 2 lb loaf pan or separate into two 1 lb loaf pans. Let rise for an additional 30 minutes. Then bake on 350 for 30 minutes.
