OK, I know that baking your own bread can seem overwhelming. How can you possibly make time, etc. But . . . it can be SO quick to make! I wanted to show you guys just how quickly you can make your own bread. Honestly, I think that you can make it quicker than you could run into a store and buy some. I added all of the ingredients to make my bread plus talked to you guys in this video that is 3 minutes and 1 second. (Plus, I had to open a new bottle of honey where the lid wouldn’t come off in the middle of the video, so it could have been even faster. . . . Food Network start I am not.) My husband started laughing at me since I couldn’t get it open hence my giggling in the middle of the video. But, hey I only do one take on videos. But I digress, the point of the video is . . . even if you need four loaves of bread a week, that would only be about 12 minutes, right? Maybe you have that much time???

4 cups freshly ground whole wheat (If you need tips on how to grind your own wheat, click here.)
1/3 cup oil

This is a really easy whole wheat bread recipe that our family has been using for a long time. My mom and sister use it as well. They found the recipe here. They actually taught me how to make this bread years ago. It is also super adaptable. We use this same recipe to make pizza crust. I just add a little bit of garlic and roll it out. It is SO delicious!!
