10 Grain No Knead Bread

This recipe uses the overnight method for a grainy, chewy loaf with lots of fiber. I also make it with cracked wheat instead of 10-grain cereal. You’ll need a 5-quart Dutch oven with an oven-proof handle and parchment paper (Reynolds brand is best). BE SURE TO AERATE YOUR FLOUR BEFORE MEASURING. - Jenny Jones

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 13 hours

Makes: One loaf

10 Grain No Knead Bread


  • 1/3 cup 10 grain cereal, dry & uncooked (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

  • 1 cup cool water
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup bread flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon yeast (instant or active dry)

  • about 2 Tablespoons extra flour for shaping


  1. Combine dry cereal and boiling water in a large bowl. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in cold water followed by remaining ingredients. Combine well.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature overnight for 10 to 12 hours (even longer is fine).
  4. Dough will become puffy. Transfer it to a floured surface and sprinkle with a little flour. Using a scraper, fold dough over 10-12 times & shape into a rough ball.
  5. Place in a parchment paper-lined bowl and cover with a towel. Let stand on counter top for 1 hour.
  6. After 25 minutes, place Dutch oven with lid in a cold oven and preheat to 450° F. My oven takes 35 minutes to reach 450°.
  7. When oven reaches 450° (& dough has stood for 1 hour) carefully, using oven gloves, lift the parchment paper and dough from the bowl and place gently into the hot pot. (parchment paper goes in the pot too) Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  8. After 30 minutes, remove lid and parchment paper. Return, uncovered, to oven and bake for 10 more minutes.

    Have you ever tried making a lower carb bread? I just found out I have diabetes 2 and will be missing crusty wonderful bread unless I can find a good recipe from someone experienced.

    Thank you

      Bonnie, if you want a “low carb” crusty bread you’ll have to slice a tiny slab from the crust (about 2×2 with just the crust because bread is loaded with CHO; sorry. The ADA directions say 1 slice per meal. Dave’s killer bread has a 60 calorie/slice.

    I do not have a Dutch oven, what to do? Can I still make it?

    Hi Jenny, referring to your 1/3 cup 10 grain cereal, dry & uncooked (I use Bob’s Red Mill) I need more help on the cereal. I found the Bob’s Red Mill, but there was such a choice. How do I know which one? Does it have to say 10 grain on it? Could you post a picture of the sack cereal? So excited to try this new recipe.
    Thanks Jenny

    When making bread, can I just mix anything as long as it’s three cups of base? Then Lemmon zest, spices etc!

    again.I have tried some of your breads in the past with success.Thanks I never thought I could make bread lol.I am wondering have you tried the ancient grains or what I guess some would call the original grains like Eikorn wheat in any recipe?
