  • 2 cups of luke warm water
  • 2 Tbsp yeast – saf instant yeast - my favorite because professional bakers use it!
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 7 cups whole wheat flour
  • 8 teaspoons vital wheat gluten
  • 2 teaspoons salt


  • Add water, oil, yeast, eggs, honey to your mixer with whisk attachment. Mix them together until a batter. Add in half of the flour, mix well until all incorporated.
  • Add salt, gluten. Mix well. Switch to dough hook. Add all the remaining flour at once. Slowly knead until it’s all incorporated.
  • If it's stuck at the very bottom only a little bit – add enough flour until the perfect consistency. Feels like playdough. Knead for a few minutes with the hook 2-3 minutes.
  • Form it into rolls or two loaf pans. Let rise until doubled in size. Or you can go ahead and freeze them.
  • Bake at 350 degrees. Loaf of bread 30 minutes – rolls it’s 20-25 minutes or until they look done. Brush with butter after they're out of the oven.
  • If they are frozen: Then take out and thaw on cookie sheet when ready to bake. Let it rise until double in size.
