Cook Time 30 minutes
Rising Time 1 hour
Total Time 2 hours
Servings 4 Loaves


  • 4 cups Warm water
  • 2 tbsp Dry yeast
  • 1 cup Organic brown sugar / Honey / Agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp Salt
  • 1 cup Vegetable oil
  • 2 lb Bag of whole grain flour Winter wheat / Prairie gold / Unbleached


  1. In a large bowl dissolve the yeast and sweetener in the 4 cups of warm water.

  2. Add the salt and oil and mix with a spatula to ensure there are no lumps.

  3. Slowly add in flour to the mixture until it begins to form a dough. You will not use the entire bag of flour, but keep adding flour until the dough is just dry enough to handle and knead with a little flour. Knead well and into any shape desired.

  4. After placing shaped dough in oiled bread tin or cookie sheet, set it in a warm place to rise for an hour. Once it is double in size, pre-heat the oven to 350* F and bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

  5. After baking, allow it to cool slightly and remove from the bread tin so it doesn't sweat. Allow to cool and enjoy!
