A couple of days ago I decided that I would try to be frugal and save as much money as possible before my vacation. So as part of the frugality, I would bake my own sandwich bread.
I have not had much luck making loaves of bread, they would always come out too chewy or hard.
Still, I thought I would try a new recipe anyway. I searched for vegan whole wheat bread and up came a (non-vegan) recipe from allrecipe.com. So I vegan-ized it and increased the fiber:
- I substituted agave nectar for the honey, and olive oil for the butter.
- I substituted the bread flour for oat bran-- I simply ground up oats in my spice grinder until it was powdery like flour.
My bread, she's a beauty
I do have to say that it took me several hours, but it was very much worth it- it's delicious, the perfect consistency, and I had to stop myself from consuming it all at once.
Here is the link: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/simple-whole-wheat-bread/Detail.aspx
The steps were simple and it called for common ingredients- the good reviews on allrecipe.com do not lie, it's a winner!
I might never have to buy my $5 loaf of vegan sandwich bread again.
