Honey wheat bread is perfectly thick, chewy, soft, and lightly sweetened. It tastes great on its own, or with extra butter and honey on top!

There isn’t much better than fresh warm bread, straight from the oven – especially when it’s slathered with butter and drizzled with fresh honey! This honey wheat bread is the perfect homemade loaf of bread.
This honey wheat bread is perfection. Its light, soft and a little bit chewy. My husband even said “That honey wheat bread is the best bread I’ve ever had, toasted and with some honey on top”. The bread has a mixture of white and wheat flour, and is just lightly sweet – with honey instead of sugar to sweeten it.
I used Buzz + Bloom Honey to make this bread because it’s heated at a lower temperature, gently strained, and kept more natural and more delicious than other honeys. This helps the honey retain it’s naturally occurring pollen, maintaining more of its helpful enzymes, antioxidants, and nutritious benefits.
This bread is easy to make, the only hard part is waiting for the dough to rise before baking.
September is National Honey Month, so you better believe I’ll be eating my toast with Buzz + Bloom Honey on top all month long. How will you be celebrating?
