Breadmaker Sprouted Wheat Bread

A picture of a loaf of sliced bread on a cutting board and the blog post title "Breadmaker Sprouted Wheat Bread"

Have you ever made sprouted wheat bread in your breadmaker? It is every bit as good as traditional wheat bread!

I will admit that I really LOVE fresh bread. The kind that smells so good baking and that you can slice while it’s still warm and top with butter which melts all over it. And maybe a little raw honey or homemade strawberry preserves. Mmmm….am I making your mouth water yet?

I had been making whole wheat bread in my breadmaker for years. I made the switch because I was frustrated with some of the ingredients that I found in store bought breads and wanted to make bread that I was comfortable eating because I knew exactly what was in it. And I had perfected my traditional wheat bread in the breadmaker. When I first learned about sprouted grains I wanted to challenge myself to make a breadmaker bread that work with sprouted wheat. The two different types of flours work very differently and so I had to try a few different times to get one that worked in the breadmaker!

Working with sprouted wheat

I have really enjoyed working with sprouted wheat. Of course, there are benefits for your health, such as reduced amount of gluten, and no anti-nutrients which allow you to get a whole lot more nutrients.

So, as promised, here is the recipe for homemade bread that I made in my breadmaker. I have tried it with a couple of different options, but this is my favorite! I purchase the sprouted wheat flour that I used in the recipe in bulk online. This bread is not too dense and is perfect for sandwiches! You can actually use molasses in place of the honey in this recipe and it is also very yummy!

Of course, this recipe is for a breadmaker. I use an Oster breadmaker that works wonderfully. I have had it for years and it has served me well and it still going strong!

  1. I want to try this recipe you posted. Is it ok to ask where you buy the sprouted wheat flour online? I am trying to lose 100 pounds and this seems like the best way to handle the bread issue. thank you Kathy

  2. I made this today. It smells wonderful, but the entire center sunk. I ws thinking it may be because I am in Florida. I know the air is generally more moist here and think if I lower the water, it will turn out better. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions for me? Thanks.

      I had the same problem in the Keys. The yeast is growing too quickly. My recipe called for 1.5 tsp salt so I used 2 tsp and the results were perfect.

  3. Would this be considered “clean”. I am new to the clean eating thing, but really do not want to consistently shell out money for Ezekiel bread.


  4. Just made this and it’s perfect! I first used sprouted grain in my regular bread recipe and it came out a lumpy rock-hard mess. I didn’t realize it needed special treatment from being sprouted. This simple recipe gave me a beautiful crusty outside, soft inside!

        I made a loaf in my DAK Turbobaker, white bread setting (this older machine does not have whole wheat setting) with exactly the ingredients listed. It came out perfectly!! Such a simple recipe, thank you!

  5. Is it okay to use bread machine active dry yeast? I have a huge thing of it but don’t want to waste other ingredients trying if it’s going to flop!

  6. I was very excited to find this recipe! However- mine came out a little crumbly/hard to get a whole intact piece and a little sunken in the middle. Want to tweak but not sure how. Maybe add a little butter? Any suggestions would be appreciated! It does taste great!

    1. Yes, you may want to try 2 tbsp of an oil like olive or avocado….or even the same amount of butter. That may help.

      1. You replied 1/4 tsp of salt to Melinda’s question, yet the ingredient list states 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt.

    1. I actually don’t know if it would work or not. I haven’t actually tried it that way! It’s always been easier for me to do it in my breadmaker!

  7. Unfortunately this created a sunken loaf for me that I had to tear out of the bread machine pan piece by piece.
    I used sprouted red wheat flour (to your health brand) and avocado oil as the options in mine.
