Delicious! We loved this tasty bread. I used the optional gluten and the result was a light, tall loaf, with a tender crust and soft interior...yum! I used the "light" crust setting because my machine tends to cook a little on the darker side. This bread sliced nicely without crumbling, even when warm, and it makes wonderful sandwiches. I would never of thought of using Grape Nuts to make bread, but it definitely works in this recipe. Thank you for sharing this great recipe!

Wonderful bread, the flavor reminds me of the jewish rye bread I buy my dad at the grocery store. Nice crunchy crust, tender inside, and also tastes great toasted. Served warm with Carrie in Indiana's Recipe #109936 #109936 and loved it! A nice bread to make sandwiches with too. Made and reviewed for Pick a Chef Spring 2010.
