High Protein Bread is often one of several staples for people focusing on being heart healthy, a regimen of good nutrition and plentiful exercise.  While whole wheat breads are certainly full of vital nutrients, high protein bread is an excellent choice for those who may be looking to shed pounds and increase the amount of natural healthy protein in their daily diets.  By making use of high protein ingredients, like nuts and soy products, high protein bread can be an ideal choice for every health conscious person!

High protein bread is very often free of preservatives which, in turn, reduce its shelf life; with this in mind, it might prove to be much more beneficial to bake your own high protein bread so that you will always have it on hand when you are looking for a slice!

1 cup of bread flour

    that sounds great. It sounds like you are on the right track. I usually experiment a little also. There are several things that may need adjusting when bread is too dense:

    Not enough sugar used
    Not enough yeast was used
    Too much flour was used

    Bread flour absorbs a greater quantity of water than whole wheat flour.

    So when we switch to wheat flour we have to adjust the water. After a couple of tries I usually figure out the right amount of water.

    Let us know how you make out next week.

    Hi, Gianna.

    I did try modifying a bit, replacing the bread flour with 1 cup of white whole wheat flour. I thought the dough was a bit too moist (more of a quick bread consistency), so I added another 1/4 cup of white whole wheat flour. Not sure if it was supposed to be that moist, but took a gamble. I also added 1/4 cup each of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds. It came out great, albeit a bit dense, but all in all I was very happy with it. Next week I’ll try using something else for the soy flour, and let you know how it turns out.

    Hi Kathy,

    thanks for the comment. No, I have never tried this recipe with anything other than bread flour and soy flour. Please let us know how it turns out with whole wheat. You are more than welcome to come back and do a guest post on it for us.

    Have you ever adapted this recipe using something other than bread flour and soy flour? I’m trying to find a high protein recipe that doesn’t use any refined white flour or soy flour (trying to avoid the plant estrogen). I’m going to try substituting white whole wheat and something else for the soy, but just wondered if you had ever given it a try.
