Introducing a nutrient-dense bread offering 35% more protein than an ordinary slice from a regular whole wheat loaf, and absolutely delish!! Top a slice with whatever your heart desires: fresh jam, nut butters, Neufchatel cheese or cinnamon and sugar. You can also craft your own bruschetta by garnishing your slice with olive oil, mozzarella, tomato and basil. Or construct your own French toast, grilled cheese, PB&J or BLT sandwiches. This bread offers the ideal protein, carb and fiber combo for stable energy levels and maximal meal satisfaction. Enjoy!!

YIELD: 12 servings


Waking Up the Yeast

  • 1 package dry active yeast
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Mixing the Dry Ingredients

  • 3 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Klean Isolate™ Whey Protein

Making the Dough

  • 1 ¼ cup warm water
  • ~½ cup white whole wheat flour for kneading


  1. Waking Up the Yeast: Mix together yeast, water and sugar in a medium to large bowl with a fork. Let sit for 5-10 minutes. Your yeast is ready-to-roll when the it starts adding some bubbles to the mix. Add the remaining 1 ¼ cups of warm water to the yeast mixture.
  2. Mixing the Dry Ingredients: While you are waiting for the yeast to wake up, mix 3 cups of flour, sugar and Klean Isolate™ together in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Making the Dough: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the yeast mixture. Stir with a fork until the mixture becomes thicker. Once the dry and wet ingredients are incorporated, place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gradually incorporate additional flour until you can knead the dough without it sticking excessively to your hands. Knead for ~5-10 minutes. Add flour if the dough starts to stick to your hands.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Let the dough rise in a bowl coated with baking spray or oil applied via a paper towel, and covered with a towel for 20 minutes. While you are waiting, grease a 9” x 5” bread pan.
  5. Once the dough has risen, place it into your prepared bread pan.
  6. Place the bread in the oven for 20 minutes.
  7. After 20 minutes, turn the oven up to 400°F and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove the bread from the bread pan to let it cool completely.
  9. Your best bet is to eat it while its warm with a little butter, but your bread can be saved for later. Just make sure you store it in an air-tight container. Do not fear if it takes a little muscle to slice it days after you make it. Just toast it for a scrumptious, nutritious treat.
