Easy and Decadent No-Knead Wheat Bread!

What you need: 

3 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup unrefined sugar (or other sweetener)
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 (1/4 ounce) package dry yeast
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
1 2/3 cups warm water

What you do: 

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the water last. You can use an electric mixer, but I find a spoon works fine and is much easier to clean. Grease 1 loaf pan.
2. Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top. Cover the dough with a towel or greased plastic wrap and let it rise for about and hour (until its doubled in size). Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
3. Bake for about 45 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean).
This is really a treat with a nice raspberry jam. Such a simple pleasure! One can also add 1/3-1/2 cup raisins for a scrumptious cinnamon-raisin vegan bread.'

Thank you for a wonderful,easy vegan w/w bread recipe!!  I'm pretty much a beginning baker and this is a perfect recipe for me;plus,the no-knead feature is great,as it keeps your hands from getting caked with flour,etc. Another reviewer suggested coating  the top with (olive) oil before baking,to help prevent burning the top,and that helped.  I found the dough needs to be thick (not too runny) before you put it in the baking pan,otherwise the middle will be too moist for my tastes.  It makes a great cinnamon/raisin bread.


I DID IT!! it was so easy and it's pretty darn yummy. I added the water and yeast together first ( with a dash or 2 of salt) and then added that to the dry mix of stuff. THanks so much for this recipe, can't wait to fool around with the recipe and make it sweet or make it savory! :>


:-D  I made this with 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp thyme instead of the cinnamon! It was delicious and was great for garlic bread.



This was my first time making any type of bread aside from banana bread... and it turned out awesome! 

I only used about 1/4 cup of sugar but followed the recipe otherwise.  I placed it over my heating vent and let it rise for about an hour-and-a-half (the dough rose all of the way to the top of the bread pan).  Taking a tip from CarolineRod, I topped it with a little extra-virgin olive oil... but forgot to do so until just before putting it in the oven.  (It still came out with a nice thin crust on top.)  I baked it at 400 for just 20-25 minutes.

This was great with a little Earth Balance after it cooled enough to eat.  It's a bit sweet, but I'll still be using it for sandwiches.  I'm so excited to have found an easy whole wheat bread recipe!  No more bagged, pre-processed stuff for me!


This bread is so good.  I used the recipe exactly except for the rise time and cooking time.  Mine took about 1 1/2-2 hrs to rise X2 placed next to my heater, and baked for about 30 min.  This is such good bread, most defiantly good toast/breakfast bread.  Sandwich bread for those of you who like thick, tasty sandwich bread.


easy and super yum! i used less sugar and added herbs, also topped it with about 2 Tbsp of veg oil before it rose, gave it a yummy crust on top


So, I was skeptical (with good reason, apparently) of this mixing procedure, specifically mixing the yeast in with dry ingredients..and my bread didn't really rise! It tastes good, but it also came out fairly dense. I realize this is at least partially my fault because I used a mixture of whole wheat, rye, and whole wheat pastry I'm ok with it. It was definitely easy, and good for a fairly quick bread with dinner.


hooray for my first loaf of bread! This recipe is so simple; although I was afraid to dump all the dry ingredients together because the salt can kill the yeast before it is activated; instead I activated the yeast first in warm water and a little sugar, then mixed w/ the rest of the ingredients. My loaf was done in about 25 minutes and it was a little crunchy on top. This is a very heavy, dense , thick, bricklike loaf, but I am still pleased with the results of my first loaf of bread, although next time I may try another recipe. But for a quick go to recipe with a minimal amount of ingredients, this one does the trick. :P


I really liked this recipe. It took very little time to prepare....

I used my bread maker to mix but the dough consistency was too sticky. I chose not to add more flour and just let it rise for 1 hour. After being in the oven for 20 mins the crust was slightly burnt. Next time I will bake for 15 mins and mix by hand.

It's great with VwaV Chickpea Salad & Tofutti Cream Cheese....YUM! Thanks for this recipe!


I've been using this as my go-to recipe for a month now, and I really like it!  I decrease the sugar to one heaping tablespoon (sometimes 2!) and I use a full tablespoon of yeast.  I also use a blend of flours (whole wheat, whole wheat graham, and regular unbleached bread flours.)  My omni hubby thinks the bread has a "buttery" taste and he eats it constantly from the second it comes out of the oven.  I usually only have to bake it for 15 minutes, so this is a great recipe when I want fresh, hot bread with dinner.
