This recipe was originally given to me by my father-inlaw. I have altered it a bit and added the seeds.
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄2 cup white flour
- 3 1⁄4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon gluten
- 1⁄2 cup sunflower seeds, roasted and unsalted
- 1⁄2 cup flax seed, ground them if you want
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 2 tablespoons honey, adjust to your likeness
- 1 3⁄4 teaspoons bread machine yeast
- Use setting 7 on the bread machine. I add everything at the beginning.
I have tried so many healthy whole wheat breads, but this is the only one that my family really loves. Like all fresh bread, it's best while still warm, but this loaf stays moist until it is gone (about 48 hours). It's my go to recipe.
fantastic bread. i added about 1/4 c. chopped fresh rosemary to mine and a little extra honey. SO good. rise was excellent. i used the "basic" setting on my bread machine, the "medium" setting for darkness and the 2.5 pound loaf setting. i have a west bend machine. <br/>thanks so much for this recipe!<br/>i used whole wheat flour.
This is a wonderful healthy tasting bread. I most definately will be making this bread again. The only thing I did different was I used white bread flour and I substituted the 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour for 1/4 cup of toasted oat bran. I used butter instead of margarine. I wasn't sure if the butter was to be melted or not .So I slightly melted it It had a very nice texture. I very much enjoyed the sunflower seeds and might add in alittle more next time. Thank you for sharing this great bread recipe.
