wheat breadLast year was the first year Americans spent more on whole-wheat bread than processed white bread — wahoo! Get on this bandwagon to reap the benefits of more fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. Just be sure any “whole-grain” product has “whole-wheat flour” listed as its first ingredient and, as always, be mindful of added sugars and preservatives in the ingredients list.

One fun way to add more whole wheat to your diet — and save some cash — is by making your own bread at home. Check out the links below to find some heart healthy recipes for homemade whole wheat breads. Once you try it, you'll never want to go back to store-bought breads— and your whole house will smell delicious!

I make oat meal flour using Quaker Oats and upright blender, using a recipe for whole wheat with gluten, I substitute 25-33% of whole wheat with oat meal flour!

I totally believe in whole wheat bread. I have been making my own for years, and I must add, much trial and error, but now I turn out 4 perfect loaves every time. I've even gone to grinding my own flour now, just to make sure it's WHOLE wheat flour.
