3/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup nondairy milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
2 tablespoons maple syrup
3 cups whole wheat flour (you can sub white whole wheat flour here for a lighter loaf)
1/3 cup bread flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup ground flax seed
3 tablespoons wheat gluten
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon + 1/2 teaspoon bread machine yeast Add-ins:
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons sesame or poppy seeds
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
This is a bread machine recipe.
1) Put all ingredients except the seeds in the bread pan in the correct order for your bread machine. Set crust to medium and program for the Whole Wheat cycle. Press start.
2) Add the seeds when your machine's "add-ins" beep sounds, or after the dough has gone through its first mix cycle if you have no "add-in" beep on your machine.
3) Remove bread from pan immediately after baking and allow to cool on rack.
Source of recipe: After years of tweaking, the result is our time-tested, family-favorite daily bread. It's nearly 100% whole grain, and chock-full of flax, oats, and seedy goodness. The flax contributes omegas, the pumpkin seeds (pepitas) iron, and the blackstrap molasses, calcium - lots of vegan goodness here!
