Enjoy No-Knead, Fridge-Friendly Dough Healthy Bread-In 5 Minutes

23 mins (prep 20, cooking 3)
6 ingredients
3-4 servings
Don't let the long directions throw you - This is so simple. This recipe was in our local paper and I made it today. To quote the article "Spend about 20 minutes making a large batch of refrigerator-friendly, no-knead bread dough that, following a standard rise, can keep up to two weeks.Each day, the desired amount of dough can be removed from the batch, shaped and baked (the basic recipe produces three to four small loaves). Total active time each day you bake is about 5 minutes." This was a HUGE hit with the kids. I love it because it's healthy and oh so easy. I've tried making bread before without great success. This recipe is a keeper. This recipe makes four 1 lb loaves; the dough can be kept in the fridge for 14 days! If you make it, I would love feedback on variations.
