RECIPE: Whole Wheat Raisin Bread

1 1/2 – 2 cups raisins
2 cups soy or almond milk
5 teaspoons instant yeast
1/4 cup grapeseed or canola oil
1/3 cup honey
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons flaxseeds
2 teaspoons Kosher salt
Cooking spray

1: Soak the raisins in water for about 30 minutes.
2: Spray two 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 loaf pans with cooking spray.
3: Microwave the milk for 1 minute to warm.
4: Add the milk and yeast in a bowl for 5 minutes or until the yeast is foamy.
5: Whisk in the oil, honey and vanilla.
6: Drain the raisins. Stir the raisins in the liquid mixture.
7: In a separate large bowl, stir together the flour, flaxseeds and salt.
8: Slowly stir in the liquid mixture. Knead well for about 5 minutes.
9: Separate the dough into two equal balls. Set them on a floured surface and shape them into loaves.
10: Place the shaped dough into the loaf pans. Cover with a lightly damp cloth. Let the dough rise in a warm place until it doubles in size.
11: Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
12: Cool bread on a wire rack. Slice as desired.

You can use another type of salt if preferred.
Use regular milk if desired.
Use white whole wheat flour for a little whiter, lighter and sweeter bread. White whole wheat flour is another healthy whole grain flour.

  1. Wow, those loaves look delicious, thank you for sharing this recipe! I try to avoid using oil as much as possible when I cook and bake, do you think I could possibly substitute unsweetened applesauce for the oil? I’ve done that before in some cookie and muffin recipes. Thanks Karen!
