Prepare the Bread
In a bowl, mix flours, flax, and water and cover with a damp cloth. Set aside for 12–24 hours.
After this time, soften yeast in honey, oil, and water. After yeast is softened, stir in the salt and then pour the mixture into the soured dough. Mix well.
Then, using extra flour for handling, shape dough into French bread loaf and place on a greased cookie sheet. Brush the top of loaf with egg white, cut three diagonal gashes along the top, and then sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Rise for 35–45 minutes and then bake for 45 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
