  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups whole wheat flour (*See our vegan white bread if you prefer that)
  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt*
  • 1 1/2 cups dairy free milk (we like oat - can use any non-strongly flavored dairy free milk - can use water)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup* (can sub for agave or cane sugar)


  • In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast, and salt. 
  • Then, add in the dairy free milk and maple syrup. 
  • Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined.  Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.  
  • Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
    *If you are oil free, then just make sure sides of bowl are floured, or use a silicone bowl to easily get it out
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
  • Once doubled in size, roll it into a loaf shape (oval) and place it into a bread pan. Let dough rise again until peaking over the loaf pan (another 60-90 minutes).
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-35 minutes. 
  • Remove and let cool before slicing.



*Salt and sugar are optional in this recipe, making it a 3 ingredient recipe.  While we prefer both, they can be omitted and still have fluffy bread.
