Soaked Whole Grain Bread

A delicious whole grain bread recipe made from real food ingredients.
Cook Time45 mins
Course: Side Dish
Servings: 2 loaves


  • 3 c. whole wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp. sucanat, organic cane sugar, or raw honey
  • 2 tbsp. caraway seeds
  • 1/4 c. sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 c. raw or cultured milk
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 tsp. yeast


  • Combine the whole wheat flour, sucanat, and seeds in a large bowl.
  • Add the coconut oil, egg, and raw milk and stir it all up.
  • Cover with a towel and set it in a warm location overnight, or for about 12 hours (a bit longer is fine too but it will taste increasingly sour).
  • In the morning, sprinkle salt and yeast over the dough.
  • Knead this in for several minutes, until you can’t see any more flecks of yeast and the dough is smooth and elastic. Let it rise for about 2 hours in a warm place, then punch it down and shape into loaves.
  • Allow the bread to rise in the pans for another 1 – 2 hours, until it has crested the pans. Preheat the oven to 350, and bake the bread for about 45 minutes, until golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped.
