Honey Wheat Slow Cooker Bread
Homemade whole wheat bread sweetened with honey transforms from dough to loaf in just 90 minutes in your slow cooker.
- Serves: 1 person
- 1⅛ cups water
- ⅓cup honey
- 1½ tablespoons oil
- 1tablespoon dry milk powder
- 1½ teaspoons salt
- 1½ teaspoons active dry yeast
- 3cups whole wheat flour, or more if needed
- ¼cup rolled oats, or as needed
Step 1Place water in a 2-cup or larger glass measuring cup and microwave on high until warm to the touch, but not too hot, about 45 seconds. Add honey, oil, milk powder, salt, and yeast; stir with a fork until combined. Transfer to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment.
Step 2Add flour, 1 cup at a time, and mix on low speed until combined. Increase to a higher speed and mix until a nice dough forms, adding additional flour if necessary.
Step 3Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead into a ball. Pour oats on the work surface and roll the dough in the oats. Place dough onto a narrow, rectangular piece of parchment paper. Transfer parchment paper and dough into a slow cooker.
Step 4Cover and cook on High until bread has cooked through, about 1 1/2 hours.
