I actually made this in my bread machine on the grain setting and it did pretty good. I also added 1/4c of each sunflour and flax seeds. It turned out a very dense loaf, but I didn't mind that. It lacked a bit of flavour, so next time I am going to try increasing the salt to 1-1/2 tsp to see if that helps a bit.
