This Delicious Cheesy Whole Wheat Bread Recipe Is High in Fiber

This simple, versatile whole wheat bread recipe is a family favorite. It's a healthy alternative that's high in fiber and more complex than a plain white bread. 

This easy bread recipe makes two loaves. Be careful with adding more garlic – garlic can kill the yeast.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes plus 1 1/2 hours to rise
Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: approximately 2 hours
Servings: Makes 2 loaves

Ingredients

  • 4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
  • 1 cup onion flakes
  • 2 teaspoons garlic or 1 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 cups shredded Gouda or other firm cheese (Swiss, mild cheddar, etc.)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all ingredients except flour and cheese.
  2. Add the flour 1 cup at a time until dough is sticky but firm. 
  3. Knead dough for about 10 minutes. (I use my KitchenAid stand mixer.) Let it rise 45 minutes. 
  4. Add the cheese. 
  5. Divide the batter into two and place each half into a bread pan. Make three slices across the top of both loaves and allow them to rise for 45 minutes. 
  6. Bake in a pre-heated 350-degree F oven (325 degrees F for glass pans) for 35 minutes.
