A delicious whole grain bread. It is my favorite bread of all time! It is for bread makers. You may substitute vegetable oil for flaxseed oil if flaxseed oil is unavailable.

Excellent! You MUST grind the flaxseed in order to receive any health benefits - otherwise it will pass through whole and you will miss out on all of the nutritional benefits. It is very hard to find high quality whole wheat bread recipes and this one is awesome. Try it! Read More

Excellent recipe for a healthy homemade bread. My 2 year old eats a piece every morning with butter and jelly. I prepare the bread by putting all ingredients in the breadmaker and set it to manual. When finished let it rise for an hour then put in a loaf pan and bake at 350 for 35 mins. This makes a nice loaf without it looking like it came out of a breadmaker. I also found out the hard way that you can buy flaxseed oil at Wal-Mart for alot cheaper than in a helthfood store. Read More

This turned out to be one of the best whole wheat breads that ever came out of my breadmaker! I didn't have flaxseed oil or liquid lecithin so I substituted safflower oil and granulated lecithin. Besides flaxseed oil and liquid lecithin are a bit on the pricy side. I also experimented with agave nectar in place of the honey. It worked well. Whey powder is not very expensive and can be purchased in bulk from most health food stores including Whole Foods/Wild Oats and the Vitamin Cottage. Milled flaxseed is available in the health food sections of most supermarkets nowadays. My breadmaker calls for the water temperature to be 85 degrees F. Finally table salt works just as well as sea salt plus it's readily available in iodized form which is a good way to get this valuable micronutrient. This one's a keeper! Thanks! Read More

Excellent but don't use flax oil for cooking! Oils high in essential fatty acids are not good for cooking. In fact heat can turn these healthy fats into harmful ones. Add flax oil to foods after cooking and just before serving. Still great with vegetable oil! Read More

This is one of the best whole wheat recipes I have found. I have a grain mill so I can mill my own wheat which makes it extra fiber-rich! I've also used spelt flour and it was delicious. This is a new family favorite! Read More
