    Wilmom's Note:

    The many ingredients of this hearty bread make it a nutritious, satisfyingly delicious European-style offering. The flavor is enhanced when toasted for your morning breakfast! I've adapted it from a recipe found in a cooking magazine. My family prefers the bread made this way. It freezes well, too! Walnuts or Pecans work equally well. I've tried this with other yeasts, but Fleischman's works best due to its ability to proof the heavier texture of the bread.

      Excellent Bread Recipe. I rolled the loves in Oatmeal, Sunflower Seeds and Flax Seeds before putting in the pans for a crunchy interesting top. I left out the peacans and subsituted for oatmeal (not the quick oats, but old fashion)

      Pretty good. Didn't have whole flax seed, so I used ground flax seed and cut the amount down just a little. Also, don't have a stand mixer with a dough hook, so I mixed it by hand. Came out good.

      Turned out great. Loved the grains and the chewy crunch from the nuts.
