Integral bread

Whole wheat bread is a healthy and versatile option. Made with whole wheat flour, it is rich in fiber and nutrients. Ideal for sandwiches and toast, it contributes to a balanced diet.


• 2 cups of whole wheat flour

• 1 cup of common wheat flour

• 1 ½ teaspoons of salt

• 1 tablespoon of honey or sugar

• 1 sachet of dry yeast (7-9 grams)

• 1 ¼ cups of warm water

• 2 tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil

Before preparing whole wheat bread, make sure you have all the ingredients ready and measured accurately for a delicious and healthy result.


  1. In a large bowl, mix the whole wheat and common wheat flours together with the salt. Make a small well in the center to add the liquid ingredients.
  2. In another small bowl, mix the honey or sugar with the dry yeast. Add ¼ cup warm water and mix lightly. Let sit for a few minutes until the mixture is bubbly.
  3. Pour the yeast mixture into the well in the center of the flours. Add the olive oil and the rest of the warm water.
  4. Begin mixing the ingredients until a dough forms. Then, knead the dough on a floured surface for about 8-10 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
  5. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let rest in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  6. Once the dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a floured surface and flatten it gently to degas it.
  7. Grease a loaf pan and place the dough in it, making sure it is evenly distributed.
  8. Cover the mold with a damp cloth and let the dough rise again for about 30-45 minutes.
  9. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  10. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown on top and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  11. Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing it from the pan. Then place it on a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into slices. Ready! Now you have a delicious homemade whole wheat bread. You can enjoy it as toast, sandwiches or as an accompaniment to your meals. Enjoy!
