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.
