Customer Comments

I've been a customer of Kodiak Health for years. I don't consider myself a great chef. When I purchased my Wonder Mill I asked for a simple recipe for wheat bread. They gave me an easy recipe that turns out great every time. I still don't consider myself much of a chef, but my family thinks I'm great!


This is not only my first whole wheat bread recipe, this is my first bread recipe period. I like to use about 2/3 whole wheat flour and 1/3 white flour for a lighter loaf. Because of the great taste people have actually compared this bread to candy. This really is an easy recipe for great tasting whole wheat bread.
