This loaf comes together so fast and is perfect for sandwiches or toast—your family will love it, just like ours!

If you’re looking for a healthy bread machine recipe and are milling your own wheat berries, this is for you! Using a bread machine saves so much time, especially for a busy family like ours. Just toss all the ingredients into the bread maker, and in a few hours, you’ll have a fresh homemade loaf full of dense nutrition from the freshly milled flour ready to enjoy.

Making Freshly Milled Flour

When I grind my own flour, my family gets everything from the whole grain. The outer part (bran) has lots of fiber, magnesium, B vitamins like thiamine and niacin, plus minerals like iron and zinc. The germ (seed) is packed with B vitamins and important minerals too. The middle layer (endosperm) has protein, carbs, and some B vitamins, iron, and fiber. To do this, you’ll need a grain mill. It a bit of an investment, but let me tell you, it’s worth it.

This bread still contains gluten, so it’s important to be aware of that. However, many people find they react differently to grains that are freshly milled at home compared to store-bought white flour or “whole wheat” bread. The reason is that when you mill your own grains, you’re using the entire grain—nothing is taken out. Store-bought breads and flours undergo heavy processing where parts of the grain are removed to make them last longer on shelves. We are all about the freshly milled flour in our home!!
