    Katzen's Note:

    I was inspired by the Harvest Grain Blend that King Arthur Flour sells, but being in Canada, the cost of shipping is prohibitive enough to make me come up with my own version. Add 1/2 to 2/3 cup to your favourite bread for extra crunch, flavour, and nutrition! I suggest replacing 2 tbsp of each cup of flour with the mixture as a starting point. I've also added some barley flakes and 7 grain cereal to my mix. Store in a tightly sealed container. Another way to use the mix is to make a "soaker", which you do by pouring 1 cup of hot water over 2/3 cup of the mix, and allowing it to soak overnight. Then add this to your bread mix, ensuring to subtract out the 1 cup of water and 2/3 cup of flour from the recipe you're working with.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 144



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup rye flakes
    • 1 cup wheat flakes
    • 1 cup whole oat groats (also known as oat berries)
    • 1 cup millet
    • 1 cup barley (barley flakes, not barley) (optional)
    • 1 cup seven-grain cereal (optional)
    • 1/2 cup flax seed
    • 1/2 cup poppy seed
    • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
    • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds


    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients together. Store in tightly sealed container.
    2. 2
      To use, substitute mix flour, using 2 tbsp per 1 cup of flour. To use soaked (which will make it less crunchy, and more chewy), add 1 cup hot water to 2/3 cup of the mix, and allow to sit, covered overnight. Ensure when adding to your flour mix to subtract the water and mix from your recipe's water and flour.

      Delicious and nutritious! I did the overnight soak method and used it in my Whole Wheat Bread (A B M), so now my innocent wheat bread is on the equivalent of steroids! lol! Thanks, Katzen! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap.

      OK, so I am sitting here eating this mix and feeling like a bird. I am gonna get HUGE brownie points from the hubby on this one. He is always begging me to make bread with "whole wheat, high fiber bread with lots of seeds and nuts" and I am pretty sure this recipe will deliver just that!!!! I have stashed it away and will make it with some bread next week using your soak method. I did sub flax meal for the rye flakes and then subbed oatmeal for the flax seed. THANKS! Made as a recipenap for March 2010 Veggie Swap. UPDATE: I continue to use this in most of the breads I make as we love multi-grain breads. Most recently I used it in Hearty Nut Bread (Abm), subbing out the nuts for this grain blend. YUMMO! We love it and I highly recommend it.
