Honey Wheat Loaf Recipe

Honey Wheat Loaf Recipe

It’s finally here! It’s no secret this sandwich loaf is the best you’ll ever have.

After many hours of testing recipes we finally have created a delicious Ezekiel flour bread loaf! This loaf of bread is similar to a honey wheat. Enjoy!



2 1/2 Cups Warm Filtered Water (~45 °C/113 °F)

4 1/2 tsp Active Dry Yeast (2 1/2 packets) (17 g)

2 1/2 tsp Salt (14 g)

3 3/4 cups of Home & Hive Ezekiel flour (450 g)

3 3/4 unbleached bread flour or all purpose (450 g)

1 Cup Honey (175 g)

1/2 Cup Olive Oil (51 g)

Optional: 10 grams Sesame Seeds and Pumpkin Seeds (cracked)



Stir the yeast in 1 cup of warm water until it dissolves. Let sit for 5-8 minutes to activate dry yeast until a creamy foam is formed.


In a separate large mixing bowl or in a mixer, combine Ezekiel flour and all purpose flour and salt—mix thoroughly. Add honey and olive oil and continue mixing.


Add the dissolved yeast and continue mixing.

Add the remaining water intermittently as you knead in the mixture. If the dough is wet enough, as you knead, stop adding water.


Knead until the dough is smooth and passes the window pane test. Use a flat surface to knead if more convenient. ( I used my bread machine to do the kneading and took the dough out for the next step..)


Shape the dough into a ball.


Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm, enclosed place until it’s double the size or for about 1 hour.

Deflate the dough on a lightly floured surface by kneading. Cut into 2 equal pieces and roll into a loaf shape.


Grease two 9”x5” pans and place a loaf in each pan. If you are using pumpkin or sesame seeds, spritz water on top of the dough and sprinkle the seeds across. Cover with a very damp cloth.

Return the pans to the enclosed place, so the dough can rise again until the center is slightly above the top of the pan or for about 45 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Bake loaves for 45 to 60 minutes until golden brown, and the bottom is cooked.


Remove from the oven and place in a cooling rack. The loaves can be sliced and served with your favorite healthy filling.

Place in moisture-proof bags or containers for longer life and store in the refrigerator.

Have a loaf-ly day 🍞🤍
