This whole wheat honey brown bread is yeast-free and requires no-kneading. Simply mix all the ingredients together and bake!
Last year I made Irish Soda Bread to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. This year, I decided to continue the tradition of baking bread however, I decided to mix things up and make honey whole wheat brown bread instead.
Brown bread is another Irish classic, however it’s made with whole wheat flour. I used a recipe from the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook as a guide but made a few changes by using Greek yogurt instead of buttermilk and swapping honey for the molasses.
Brown bread is made with whole-wheat flour, which contains more fiber and nutrients than traditional white flour. However, that doesn’t mean it’s always the best choice. You’ll find some store-bought varieties will be chock full of sugar and preservatives. So, while brown bread is traditionally healthier than its counterparts, it’s important to check your labels… or just make my healthy version instead!
The bread turned out to be a nice, dense and slightly sweet loaf. Perfect for breakfast. 🙂
This morning I knew I wanted to have a slice but I also needed a little something more so I topped it with a little almond butter and paired it with a hard-boiled egg and a navel orange. Perfection!
My second choice for St. Patrick’s day breakfast would have been a green smoothie. Maybe I’ll opt to have one of those tonight instead of the green beer that Isaac bought.
