Preparation -- 5 minutes

Well, there isn't much preparation for this recipe. So that's super easy, right? for perfect bread, we recommend a scale, or well, at least be precise with the measurements and proportions.

Baking the whole wheat bread -- 5 minutes + baking time

Add flour to the bread machine and make a hole in the middle, pour the dry yeast in the middle. Carefully pour in the water and add the salt in the corners so it won't touch the yeast at first.

Add the sugar, olive oil, nuts and seeds if you chose to use those. Set your machine to the whole wheat setting if your machine has that setting and set the time.

Our bread machine was kneading and baking this bread a little bit longer than 3 hours total. Remove from the machine and carefully remove the dough hook. Enjoy!
