I thought this bread was great. It didn't taste wheaty/healthy and was wonderfully hearty but moist with a really nice flavor. I will have to use 3/4 of the recipe next time it was too much for my bread machine. Thanks so much for the recipe I will use it often.

Awesome Bread!! Lots of walnut flavor! I didn't have any molasses and used karyo syrup and maple syrup, and I didn't have any whole wheat flour - just used all purpose white. I also added 1/4 tsp of maple flavoring. Excellent Bread and easy to make!! Thanks for sharing Barb! Everyone at work loved it too!
