Toaster Oven Whole Wheat Bread

If you want to save electricity by using a smaller oven, or if your full-sized oven is not working, try this healthy bread recipe. You will need 2 small loaf pans, ones that will make 3/4 pound loaves. My pans measure 8 x 4 x 2 inches on top and 7 x 3 x 2 inches on the bottom.

Makes 2 small loaves (3/4 pounds each).


  • 1 c warm filtered water
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 Tbsp yeast
  • 2 2/3 c whole wheat flour
  • 4 tsp vital wheat gluten (gluten flour)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • butter for greasing pans and tops of loaves


  1. Place water, oil, honey, and yeast in a stand mixer bowl. Allow to stand 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Add 1 1/3 cups of the flour plus the gluten flour. Using the mixer paddle, mix well. Allow to stand 15 minutes to soften.
  3. Switch to dough hook; turn mixer on low. Mix, gradually adding remaining 4/3 cups flour and salt until well combined..
  4. Knead in mixer 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer dough to oiled bowl, turn over to oil all sides of the dough. Cover and allow to rise one hour.
  6. On UNfloured surface, cut dough in half. Press each portion into rectangle. Roll each tightly into loaf shape, pinching ends together. Place in buttered small bread pans (See note above.)
  7. Cover pans with tea towel. Allow to rise in a warm place 45 minutes.
  8. Place toaster oven rack in lowest position. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  9. Bake 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  10. Transfer to cooling rack. Brush tops with butter. Cool completely before slicing.
