I had a little problem with this recipe. The dough didn't rise very well. I wonder if the 7-grain cereal is supposed to be cooked first? It produced a fairly heavy loaf. But maybe it's supposed to be a heavier loaf. I still loved the healthy ingredients, and will try it again. Maybe my yeast wasn't working properly.

This is an excellent bread. I don't have soy flour, so I used oat bran instead. I also added 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt - can't imagine bread with no salt in it. Thanks for posting, I plan to make this recipe again.
