homemade bread

Not only is homemade bread SO MUCH MORE DELICIOUS than store-bought bread, it is also healthier and cheaper! Have you ever looked at the ingredients in store-bought bread? It has ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and many preservatives that you can’t pronounce. Homemade bread is natural and you know exactly what’s going into it.

Homemade bread costs between $0.30-$0.45 a loaf whereas bread at ALDI costs around $0.85-$1. According to MNM, you can save between $80 to $320 a year per person by making your own bread.

The only drawbacks to making your own bread are time and convenience. It’s easier to buy bread at the store. However, If you are short on time, you could invest in a bread maker and easily earn back the money in less than a year. I recommend the Oster 2-Pound Expressbake Bread Machine. It’s more affordable than many other bread makers on the market and offers some useful features including:

  • Up to a 2.0 lb. loaf capacity, ideal for larger families
  • 12 bread settings and 3 crust settings for variety of breads, dough and jams
  • Expressbake setting bakes bread in under an hour
  • 13-hour programmable baking timer allows for fresh breads anytime
  • Large LCD display – easily indicates each stage of the bread making process
