Bread Machine Sprouted Grain Bread

We have been getting a number of requests for a bread machine recipe using our sprouted flour. I haven’t used a bread machine much but recently picked up a Breville bread machine from Williams-Sonoma, and I must say waking up in the morning to the smell of fresh bread is rather nice!

I have made bread with both our Sprouted Spelt and Sprouted Whole Wheat flours, but they can also be used in combination.

Bread Machine Sprouted Whole Wheat Bread


1 1/2 cup warm water
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp coconut palm sugar
4 cups One Degree Organics Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour
2 1/2 tsp yeast


Add ingredients to bread machine bowl in order given.

Follow machine’s instructions for baking. Makes one 1.5 pound loaf.

Allow to cool before slicing.

    • Hi Karen, I haven’t tried baking it with coconut oil before but I couldn’t see why it wouldn’t work. Coconut oil is such an amazing oil to bake with! Let us know how it turns out!

  1. My bread machine calls for 3 cups of flour for the large loaf. Do you have a way to convert the wheat bread recipe to fit my machine? Thank you

  2. Thanks for this recipe as I would have a hard time kneading the dough dt my rheumatoid arthritis which is severe in both hands! Thanks again. Will try this recipe today!

  3. I made this bread in my machine for the first time using additional ingredients and some changes and it still came out perfect soft yet with substance and great crust ! No gaping holes in the loaf ! My additions were 2Tb ground flax seed, 1 TB Chia seeds, 1/4 c. each of Craisins , dried blueberries, pumpkin seeds, rolled oats and sunflower seeds agave syrup replaced coconut palm sugar( didn’t know about this type of sugar). I used 1 TB coconut oil and 1 TB organic butter. ( I wasn’t sure about how it would taste being all coconut oil so I used some butter next time I’ll try all coconut oil) It was easy to make and delicious too even my fussy husband enjoyed it ! I love to experiment with recipes and your was so tasty and easy ! My other recipes were always problematic for me when making wheat breads but not this one ! It’s a keeper ! No more buying frozen sprouted breads at the grocery store for me thank you so much !

    • I am so happy you had such great success baking this recipe! I’m going to have to try making a loaf with the extra additions you put in – sounds amazing! Thank you so much for sharing and I’m thrilled the recipe has your stamp of approval. Enjoy an extra slice of bread for us! Happy baking!

  4. Great bread! So healthy. Spelt bread comes out a bit uneven in my 2 lb bread machine so I am going to make a 4 cup loaf and increase the ingredients proportionately. The coconut palm sugar for the spelt bread is 1 1/4 teaspoons whereas it is 3 tablespoons for the wheat bread. Is that a misprint for the spelt bread? Should it be tablespoons?

    • Hi Craig, we are delighted to hear you love the bread! Thanks for catching the misprint. We’ve made the correction. Happy baking!

    • Hi Colleen, you can purchase coconut palm sugar at many grocery and health foods stores as well as online at Amazon. It is a delicious sweetener and I’m sure you’ll love using it in a lot of baking!

  5. I’m venturing into sour dough bread. My Naturapathic doctor wants me to avoid yeast. Any ideas for a substitute? Thank you very much.

    • So excited to hear you’re trying baking sourdough bread! I personally haven’t made sourdough bread in a bread machine before but you can definitely make sourdough using our sprouted flours. Both our sprouted grains are whole grain and whole grain flours don’t get as bubbly like refined flours but will give you excellent flavor and I’m sure you will love baking them. As for a yeast substitute, baking powder and baking soda are both commonly used yeast replacements in baking. Feel free to let us know anytime if you have any questions. Happy baking!

  6. Is the coconut date sugar necessary to the recipe? Could stevia, xylitol or erythritol be used instead successfully?

    • Hi Laurie, you can definitely use another sweetener of your choice in this recipe. Happy baking!

  7. Hi, I have two questions regarding the use of the bread machine: First, My bread machine instructions say to put dry ingredients first then wet ingredients and the yeast last (goes in a separate dispenser), so I wonder does it make a difference to put the wet before the dry? Second, I don’t know which type of program I should choose for sprouted flour – Should it be put on a regular white flour program or a whole wheat flour program?

    • Hi Adi, the bread machines we have used recommends putting the wet ingredients first which is why we have them listed accordingly in the recipe but I would suggest you follow the instructions for your specific machine. As for which setting to use on your bread machine, I would recommend the whole wheat program. Let us know how it goes! Happy baking!

  8. hey guys! i came across this amazing recipe but i unfortunately cant get your products here in Chihuahua, Mexico 🙁 so hopefully you can help me with this: i sprouted myself wheat, barley, soybean, millet and lentils (one cup each) dehydrated, and ground it all together, do you think it will work 😀 Thanks

    • Hi Alberto, great to hear you are sprouting grains and making your own flour! In place of the sprouted whole wheat flour in this recipe you can use your own sprouted whole wheat flour or un-sprouted whole wheat flour. If you try your mix of flours in the recipe do let us know how it turns out. Happy baking!

  9. Is sprouted bread made with flour from sprouted grains or from a paste made from grains made soft by sprouting? I thought sprouted breads were low glycemic because they had no flour. What is the actual difference between whole wheat bread and sprouted whole wheat bread? Thanks for your time.


    • Hi Tim, most of the sprouted grain breads on the market are made with a paste from the sprouted grains. However, for our breads, after sprouting the grains we mill them into a whole grain flour. The entire process is done at low temperatures to keep the nutrient value. Sprouting the grains not only cleans them of common irritants from the field but by letting the grain begin to germinate it increases digestibility and ups the nutrition value.

    • For the spelt bread you can use the whole wheat bread setting on the bread machine. Happy baking!

    • Hi Katrina, the nutritional information per serving is as follows:

      Protein: 4 g
      Fiber: 3 g

      Happy baking!

  10. We tried a similar recipe that said to program it as 2 pound loaf w/2 tsp yeast. It seemed like it didn’t rise and was very dense. As recommended here, we’ll try a 1.5 pound loaf next time. What yeast do you recommend? Would a packet of active or dry yeast work or are you using yeast made for bread machines from a jar?

    • Hi Michelle, We recommend using a good quality active dry or instant yeast. We prefer using instant yeast as instant yeast is a stronger, faster-acting yeast that performs particularly well in bread machines.

      Yeast also doesn’t like extremes in temperature so having your ingredients slightly warm or room temperature when putting them into the machine would be good to keep in mind as well.

      Let us know how it goes! Happy baking and have a great weekend!

    • We’ll be sharing a recipe here on the blog in a couple days for a Sprouted Khorasan bread made in a bread machine. 🙂

  11. I am a novice baker and tried making this recipe with my bread machine.Simple,perfect ,healthy and kid approved !Thanks

    • We are so excited to hear that! Having it pass the “kid approved” test is always the best stamp of approval to have! Have a great weekend and happy baking!

  12. Made this for the first time to-day. Not very successful as the bread collapsed in the centre. . I feel the mixture was too wet, so needs more flour or less water. Will try again. I used teh wholemeal setting on the machine.

  13. Can I use this same recipe to make sprouted spelt and flax bread without the bread machine?? I just tried making my own sprouted spelt and flax bread but it turned out a little doughy in the middle. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    • Hi Grace, I’m sorry your loaf turned out doughy in the middle. When bread has a doughy center it is good to check the freshness of the yeast or decrease the amount of liquid slightly. Also verify and the settings on the bread machine are set for a whole wheat loaf. Wishing you much success in the kitchen!

  14. Can I substitute brown rice syrup for the coconut palm sugar? Is it just for sweetness or is it necessary for feeding the yeast? Brown rice syrup is not as sweet as sugar or honey (someone above asked about honey). Also wondering if whey can be substituted for the water. I have a tonne of whey in my fridge to use up!

    • Hi Juliana, yes you can substitute brown rice syrup or any sweetener of choice for the coconut palm sugar. If using the brown rice syrup I would recommend using a little bit extra since, as you mentioned, it isn’t quite as sweet as the coconut palm sugar. I have never tried using whey in place of water in a recipe but from research it appears that it would work fine but the dough may rise more rapidly then when using water. Happy baking!

    • Hi Laura, you can use honey or any sweetener of choice in place of the coconut palm sugar. Happy baking!

  15. I have a gluten free setting on my machine, should I use this setting or the whole wheat setting when making this bread ?

    • Hi Julie, when baking this recipes we used the whole wheat setting on our bread machine. Wishing you much success in the kitchen!

  16. You stated the you can use any sweetener of choice but I am wondering about “artificial” sweeteners working. Isn’t the sugar there to feed the yeast, I don’t think sweeteners like xylitol and the like have the same properties as actual sugar and therefore will not properly feed the yeast. (For those of you concerned about sugar consumption, as we are xylitol is a fav, the yeast eats it so the end product will have a minuscule amount) Any thoughts?

    • Hi Melissa, great question! When making a yeast bread artificial sweeteners such as xylitol do not work. It is best to use coconut palm sugar, date sugar, honey, or raw cane sugar. Happy baking!

  17. I just purchased a bread machine and most of the recipes call for gluten. Is gluten necessary when baking bread using OneDegree whole wheat?

    • Hi Jackie, Sorry for the delay in responding to your question. We’ve had some technical issues with the comment section on our blog.
      Adding extra gluten to a recipe isn’t necessary but it does help add extra volume to the loaf. Look forward to hearing how your baking goes!

  18. I just made the sprouted Spelt bread, added toasted pumpkin seeds, sunflower seed and flax seed. I put it in the bread machine and went to work. I got home from work tonight and made an avocado, alfalfa sprouts and a little Colby jack cheese sandwich. OMG!!! SOO good! My family started to try it toasting it and the loaf is almost gone! They really love it!!! Thank you for the recipe!! My husband is going to make the wheat bread next!

    • That sounds absolutely delicious, Doreen! I’m so thrilled to hear the recipe turned out so great for you and that your family loves it! I love your idea of adding all the seeds to the bread too! My apologies for the delay in responding to your comment. We’ve had some technical issues with the comment section on our blog. Happy baking!
