Honey Wheat Bread Recipe

Nothing beats the comforting aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through the house - especially when it has a touch of Royal Honey in the mix! Let's dive in and learn how to create a loaf of homemade whole wheat bread with honey as a natural sweetener!

Royal Honey with whole wheat bread


- 3 cups warm water

- 1/3 cup oil (vegetable or canola)

- 1/3 cup Royal Honey

- 1 Tbsp. instant yeast

- 1 Tbsp. salt

- 7-9 cups wole wheat flour (we prefer our local Cascade Milling organic flour products)


1. In a mixer, with the dough hook in place, pour in the warm water and the instant yeast.

2. Add the oil, honey, and 3 cups of whole wheat flour to the bowl and mix on low until incorporated together.

3. Add another 3-4 cups of whole wheat flour (vary the flour depending on the wetness of the dough, add more if the dough is sticky and wet). Add the salt.

4. Adjust the mixer to the second speed. Let the mixer knead the dough for 6-8 minutes.

5. Oil a small spot on the counter or table and grease two loaf pans. Add some oil to your hands to make the next steps easier.

6. Divide the dough into two equal portions and shape into loaves the size of your pans.

7. Place the loaves into two greased bread pans. Lay a cloth towel over the dough and let it rise until double in size (about 20 minutes).

8. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 350 °F. When the dough has risen, bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes. The tops should be nice and golden.

9. Promptly remove the loaf pans and rub a stick of butter on the tops. Let it cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes before slicing. Serve slices of this wholesome whole wheat bread with honey and enjoy!
