Whole Wheat Parsley Herb Bread

July 7, 2014Teresa

Whole Wheat Parsley Herb Bread is quickly becoming my favorite dinner bread! I’ve made several loaves of it now, as this version is a healthier rendition of my Parsley Herb Bread. I loved the taste of that bread but wanted to use a wholesome oil instead of shortening, whole wheat flour for part of the flour, and honey instead of sugar in the recipe. All I can say is that it works, works, works! Whole Wheat Parsley Herb Bread is spectacular.

Granted, I really enjoy thyme and rosemary in any type of savory dish, and it certainly works well in home-baked bread as well. The olive oil gives it a much richer taste than mere shortening, and I really prefer using honey anytime over sugar for health reasons. Because I used half whole wheat flour and half bread flour I added vital wheat gluten to the recipe which helps the bread raise superbly and makes the bread light and fluffy.

If you’re looking for a wonderful dinner bread that’s great to use as a dipping bread, a tasty side for Italian or pasta meals, or one to go along with your favorite soup or salad, then give Whole Wheat Parsley Herb Bread a try. This breadmaker loaf takes only 5 minutes to layer into the bread canister and after cooking it on the whole wheat setting, you have an excellent fluffy loaf of bread in about 3 to 3 1/2 hours. This recipe makes a two-pound loaf of bread which will serve about 20 half-slices. Enjoy.

Allow bread to cool an additional 15 minutes before cutting down into slices. These slices were awfully large so we cut them in half. I use an electric bread knife to cut the bread and it cuts nice, clean slices.
