Whole Wheat Flaxseed Bread


This outstanding bread is bursting with nutrition as well as great taste and texture, and all with hardly any oil. It contains a lot of yeast, so it needs only one rising, which I love. Flaxseed is high in fiber and omega-3s. It’s an excellent alternative to prunes or bran and has many other health benefits as well.


Prepare the Bread

Yields 7 loaves

1. Dissolve the yeast in 2 cups of warm water. Add the sugar and set aside until foamy.
2. Combine all ingredients in a mixer and knead 10-15 minutes until a smooth dough forms.
3. Divide the dough into seven portions, and form each into a loaf.
4. Place the loaves in loaf pans, and let them rise for 50 minutes. Sprinkle them with whole flaxseed if desired.
5. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degreees Celsius) for 40 minutes. Remove the loaves from the pans, and bake them another six minutes. When done, the bread should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
