Honey Whole Wheat Bread For School Lunches

This healthy and soft bread is amazing for sandwiches



  My kids are attending a new school this year and this school does not have free breakfast and lunch. So that means that the boys are now eating breakfast at home and packing their lunches. While I am happy that they are now eating more nutritious foods, I am not happy with my grocery bill going up. One of the items that I have been buying way more of is sandwich bread and I am not liking the price of whole wheat bread. My boys love peanut butter sandwiches and are eating them for breakfast and lunch so that means I am buying three loaves a bread a week. I have tried to give them ideas on packing other things in their lunches or eating oatmeal for breakfast but they just want PB & J sandwiches. I am not going to complain as they are packing their own lunches and making their own breakfast. One less job for me is always a good thing. It is also teaching them how to be more independent. I know that they will eat their lunch at school as they packed the items they like to eat. They just have to follow my guidelines when packing their lunch. That means they need to pack fruit, milk, a protein source and a whole grain option. I also let them pack a healthy granola bar, protein bar, or chickpea chips in their lunch box for an afternoon snack.








 I love using honey in my whole wheat bread as it gives the bread a nice sweet flavor. My preferred brand of honey is one that is made from local honey hives. Not only does this honey have a nice flavor but it helps with our allergies as the bees are eating from local plants. This honey is also a favorite in my Cold & Flu Honey Lemon Ginger Tea so I make sure that I have plenty in the pantry for winter.




Love using my bread machine

 I love using my bread machine when making bread as it does all the mixing, kneading, and rising for me. I rarely, if never use the bread machine for baking the bread as my family does not like those weird-looking loaves of bread. I also find that the bread machine dries the bread out when I use it for baking. So I always take the dough out of the machine and bake it in the oven in my bread pans. The bread machine is also great for pizza as it makes an awesome pizza dough.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Yield: 1 loaf
Author:
Soft and fluffy bread that is great for sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast

Instructions:

  1.  To make the bread in a bread machine: put all the ingredients bread pan in the order listed. Program the bread machine for dough and press start, as you only want the machine to do the mixing and rising. The bread will be baked in the oven. Skip to step # 4 when the bread is done rising.
  2. To make bread by hand: Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl, or in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  3.  Knead the dough until it's smooth and just slightly tacky, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise until doubled in volume in a warm spot, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Once your bread is done rising, gently deflate the dough and shape it to fit a greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan. Let it rise, covered, until doubled, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Bake the bread in a preheated 375°F oven for 35 minutes, or until a digital thermometer inserted in the center of the loaf reads 190°F. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and cool on a rack.
