Recipe Created By: Anna McCartney


5 cups hot water
2 Tbsp salt
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar (or honey)
4 Tbsp yeast
1 cup warm water
4 cups whole wheat flour
2+ cups white flour

Mix together hot water, salt, margarine, brown sugar or honey.

Dissolve 4 tablespoons yeast in 1 cup warm water. Mix in whole wheat flour (and some bran or whatever you feel like), then add yeast mix, then white flour. You will add flour until it feels "right" - flour quantity will depend on humidity, etc.

Raise once until doubled, then divide into 4 loaves. Raise again. Bake at 325 °F for 35-40 minutes.


Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen.  You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
