5.0 out of 5 stars What a great book!
I've given this book to others who want to experience the pleasure of fresh baked bread without all the time constraints of other bread making techniques.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good & Bad
While I do like the resulting bread products I have tried from this book, none of them are truly '5 minute' recipes so I find myself making less and less of them as time goes on, and reverting back to my tried and true traditional yeast recipes. This is also partly due to the fact that, in Canada, you can't get the 'white whole wheat' flour (at least where I am you can't)...

This review is from: Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients (Hardcover)
While I do like the resulting bread products I have tried from this book, none of them are truly '5 minute' recipes so I find myself making less and less of them as time goes on, and reverting back to my tried and true traditional yeast recipes. This is also partly due to the fact that, in Canada, you can't get the 'white whole wheat' flour (at least where I am you can't) that a great number of the recipes call for, which means I'm limited and getting bored. *As regards the reviewer who (kindly, thank you!) pointed out "Nutriflour", it is not white whole wheat, it is all purpose unbleached flour with wheat bran added. White whole wheat flour is milled from white wheat as opposed to red. I have not seen it available anywhere here.

Recipes easy to follow, easy to adapt from one to the next. Lots of additional ideas, hints. Yes, recommending to friends. And - I have their other two '5 Minutes a Day' cookbooks - really interesting, and results delicious.

This book expands on the concept of making bread in just 5 minutes, but many of the recipes are just variations of each other. The gluten free section was very short and disappointing - the recipes need a lot of eggs. I wish I had just stuck to the basic recipe found on-line and just played with it to create my own variations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Healthy Bread, Aug. 29 2013

This review is from: Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients (Hardcover)
Because I have to severely restrict my sodium intake I found it impossible to obtain bead recipes where it could be excluded, until this one. It offers a bounty of truly healthy and great tasting bread. Every recipe can be frozen as dough (takes up less space in the freezer) rather than as cooked loaves which tend to dry out if kept too long. Just thaw the dough out and bake the loaves fresh as you need them. Does it get any better than that?

This couple are very innovative in their bread making style. Very easy and like they say you can make a loaf and serve it an hour later with your dinner. I haven't had a failure yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars I haven't bought bread in months!, April 18 2011
This review is from: Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients (Hardcover)
This book is fantastic. Well-writen, easy-to-follow instructions and fabulous tasting recipes. True, there are a couple of recipes that take a little more than 5 minutes, but overall the recipes are fast, easy and reliable. I haven't tried one recipe that didn't work out or that I wouldn't make again. Best of all...warm bread straight from the oven whenever I want!! :-)

Sure you can get white whole wheat flour in Canada. It's called Nutriflour and Robin Hood makes it. :) HTH

3.0 out of 5 stars Healthy bread, Nov. 24 2011

This review is from: Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients (Hardcover)
This is a good book for the neophyte. Really basic technique almost impossible to miss! I found that in the majority of bread, they add a tiny bit to much water... The little hic of this method is that they use the same dough for many recipe. Example; they use the same dough for the baguette, pizza and rustic bread.
But still, it is a good book for an introduction to bread making.
