  • Medium sized loaf pan
  • Parchment paper


  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (between 110 and 115 degrees Fahrenheit. Or just test it on your wrist to make sure it feels warm but not hot.)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  • Add the whole wheat flour, active dry yeast, and salt to a large mixing bowl, then mix well.
  • Add the warm water and maple syrup, then use a spoon to mix until a sticky, wet dough is formed.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a plate, then leave it at room temperature to rise for 90 minutes.
  • When the dough has finished rising, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Use a spoon to transfer the bread dough into a parchment paper lined medium sized loaf pan (mine is 9.25 x 5.25 x 2.75 inches). Do not stir, knead, or punch the dough down - simply transfer it to the loaf pan.
  • Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes or until the top of the loaf is a deep golden brown color.
  • Allow the bread to cool off for at least one hour before serving.


  • Store the bread at room temperature in a resealable plastic bag, airtight container, or bread bag for up to three days, or freeze it for up to six months.
  • To add an extra layer of flavor to this vegan whole wheat bread recipe, sprinkle some sesame seeds on top of the loaf before baking.
