Whole Wheat Slow Cooker Bread

Homemade Whole Wheat SLOW COOKER Bread recipe that's so easy to make! This simple recipe is made in the crock pot and uses honey instead of sugar. This bread is healthy and great for clean eating! Use it for sandwiches or for breakfast, I love mine with a little butter and jam!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • rosemary optional

Instructions

  1. Pour warm water into a large bowl. Add honey and mix until dissolved. Add dry yeast and stir. Let sit for about 10 minutes until foamy. I always find it helps to sit it in a warm spot.

  2. Add salt to bowl and stir to dissolve. Add vegetable oil.

  3. Add flour and mix with hands until everything is combined. Knead the dough for 5 minutes and form into a round ball.

  4. Place dough in olive oil coated bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Sit in a warm spot for 30 minutes to rise, doubling in size.

  5. Cut a piece of parchment paper and place in bottom of slow cooker. Make sure the parchment paper comes up the bottom of the sides of the slow cooker so when the bread expands it won't stick to the sides. Additionally, I like to spray the parchment paper with nonstick spray.

  6. Place your dough into slow cooker. Sprinkle with rosemary.

  7. Cook on HIGH for 2 hours.

  8. Remove from slow cooker and brush a little bit of butter on top. Place under broiler for about 1 minute until slightly brown. Keep a eye on it and make sure it does not burn! Broiling is not a necessary step but I recommend it to get the top crispy!
