Walnut Bread

Walnut Bread

This is a great way to incorporate walnuts into any meal!


  • 1 1/2 cup Warm Water
  • 1 tbs Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Walnut or Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 6 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Walnuts, toasted until light brown 


  • Step 1
    • Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add 1/2 cup of flour and let sit for 10 minutes to give the yeast a chance to get activated.
  • Step 2
    • Stir in the honey, oil, and salt.
  • Step 3
    • Add the flour, a cup at a time, until the dough has formed a shaggy mess.
  • Step 4
    • Turn the dough out on a lightly floured counter. Knead the dough, adding flour as necessary to form a smooth and satiny ball.
  • Step 5
    • Put the dough into a ball and drizzle with a tablespoon of oil. Turn the dough to coat with oil. 
  • Step 6
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or damp towel. Let the dough rise until it is puffy. About 1 1/2 hours.
  • Step 7
    • Gently deflate the dough and knead in walnuts.
  • Step 8
    • Divide the dough in half and form each half into a ball. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the loaves with damp towel and let rise until swollen, about 30-45 minutes.
  • Step 9
    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle flour on top of loaves and use a serrated knife to slash an ‘X’ on top of each. About 1 inch deep.
  • Step 10
    • Bake the loaves for 35-45 minutes, until they are browned and sound hollow when thumped. Their internal temperature will read 190 degrees. 
  • Step 11
    • Put loaves on a rack and let cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting into them.
  • Step 12
    • Enjoy!!
