  • Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour: I used a combination of this organic sprouted whole wheat flour and all purpose to make this loaf light and fluffy.  You can use all whole wheat flour, but the texture will be denser and it won’t rise as much – that’s why I found the combination of the two flours does the trick perfectly!
  • Warm Water: Use bottled or tap, whichever you would drink.
  • Salt: I do use salt for this recipe, but about half as much as traditional bread recipes. breads. I like a fine ground sea salt which mixes into the dough evenly.
  • Maple Syrup: I love using a natural sweetener for this recipe, so I used maple syrup. You can use your favorite natural sweetener as a substitute: honey, agave, or organic sugar.
  • Instant Yeast: I love baking with this instant yeast, I absolutely love it!  Instant yeast is great for both overnight breads and this easy quick whole wheat bread recipe too!

How Do I Bake Low Salt Whole Wheat Bread?

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the warm water, salt, sugar and yeast.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes until yeast starts to bubble.  With a wooden spoon, mix in the flour one cup at a time starting with the whole wheat flour.
  2. Knead by hand (or in a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment) for 5 minutes or until dough is soft and springy.  Cover the dough with a tea towel, and allow dough to rest for 1-2 hours in a warm location. If its cold, I like to preheat my oven for one minute, turn it off, and let the dough rise in the warm oven.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Once dough has risen and doubled in size, punch it down and form into loaves.  Divide dough evenly and place them in greased loaf pans for 10-15 minutes while oven heats.
  4. Once oven reaches temperature, place loaf pans onto the center rack in the oven and bake bread for 30 to 40 minutes until golden brown.  Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing.

  1. Hi I have a question on the nutrition. It says the sodium is 110 mg. But there isn’t a serving size listed. Is that for the whole recipe? Or per slice or a different serving? Thank you. I’ve been committed super low-so for going on two years and I’d really like to give this recipe a go so I have an alternative to buying limited in-store options! Appreciate your site!

    1. Hi Amy,
      Thanks for reaching out – so the serving would be for 1 thick slice, or 2 thin slices of bread. The nutrition is calculated for 16 servings, and since the recipe makes 2 loaves it would be for 1/8 of a loaf. Depending on how you slice your bread, you could have a thick slice or two thinner ones for a sandwich. Let me know how it turns out – I just made this again yesterday, and it’s a favorite in our house!
      – Kelly
