How to Make High-Protein, Whole-Wheat Sandwich Bread

This sandwich bread recipe, which is part whole-wheat, has been one of my go-to bread recipes for months now. It takes less than 15 minutes to put together the dough and, once that’s done, all I have to do is nurse it through two rises and bake it into two fabulous loaves that can be eaten all week long.

How to Make High-Protein, Whole-Wheat Sandwich Bread

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeHigh ProteinVegan

Ingredients

Mix in a large bowl and set aside for five minutes until it begins to froth:

  • 4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water

Mix in another bowl:

  • 1 cup warm soymilk
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (use sugar or agave nectar if you’d rather)
  • 1 tbsp salt

Add the soymilk mixture to the yeast. Add to it:

  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour

Mix in a stand mixer on low speed or by hand. Then add:

  • 1 cup vital wheat gluten flour

Knead on low speed or by hand, adding a little at a time until the dough is no longer sticky:

  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of whole-wheat flour (add more flour if the dough’s still sticky).

Preparation

  1. Continue kneading for another 10 minutes. You should have a really smooth, supple dough.
  2. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, turning once so the top of the dough is coated with oil.
  3. Cover with a kitchen towel and allow it to rise in a warm place for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until doubled in volume.
  4. Now punch down the dough, and put it back in the bowl to rise for another hour.
  5. Grease and flour two standard (6-cup) loaf pans. Now punch the dough down again and divide it into half. Shape each half into an oval, tucking the seams underneath.
  6. Place each oval into a loaf pan, cover loosely with oiled plastic wrap, and set it aside to rise for about 90 minutes until the dough rises above the pan, forming a nice dome.
  7. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Bake the loaves for 10 minutes, then turn the oven temperature down to 350 degrees and continue baking for another 30 minutes or until the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  8. Cool on a rack for about 10 minutes, then remove the loaves from the pan and continue cooling.

Why would you want high-protein bread?? People get too much protein as it is.
