"Flaxseeds are a healthy addition to almost any diet. Research shows that this food is a real cancer-fighter. This is a really good bread. Rustic and nutty flavored but not overpowering. My DH enjoyed this bread toasted. I made a second batch and made 6 rolls and a mini loaf (freehand) of bread which I then added butter and garlic to after it was cooked, then toasted for a spaghetti dinner. DH LOVED it this way. This recipe adopted from the Caring4Cancer newsletter. ABM directions- below Time includes resting and rising time. These times will vary depending on method, altitude and temperature in your neck of the woods. NOTE: (3/8/12) Most everyone has had to add in the additional flour. I used an additional 1/2 cup as well. I still follow the directions keeping 1 c aside to add in afterwards because I tried it adding it in in the beginning and it did not seem to come together as well, too dry to start. I also have made this using 2 c whole wheat flour +3 1/2 c AP flour to start and then used less than 1/2 c of additional flour. Please use your own experiance and jusdgement."

"Excellent - even though I goofed. I skipped the milk, the result was a very dense yummy bread. I used up the last of my flax, so I will have to wait to try this the way it was written. I also used 2 tablespoons of honey instead of 3 tablespoons of sugar. Fast and easy bread."
"Holy smokes!! This is FABULOUS bread. I am so glad it made 2 loaves. They will be eaten quickly. The ground flax seeds really adds depth and flavor to the loaves of bread. This was incredibly easy to make and really didn't take long. Notes: I did end up adding all of that reserved 1 cup flour - plus kept adding more flour to my counter/hands during the kneading process - just to prevent stickiness. My bread was done in 30 minutes and the whole family LOVES it!"
"Although I do like the flavor of whole grain breads, we found the flax meal in this particular bread did make for a great taste treat! A very nice change of pace & easy enough to prepare, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #42]"
"Delicious! I made in a bread maker and taking on board some other reviews added the full amount of flour from the start and it came out perfectly."
"What would you give to see a fight over the last bite. Bail money? Made for A-NZ#62 recipe tag."
"Delicious. I used ground LSA as that was what I had available. I also sub'ed quick yeast and used standard dried yeast which I dissolved in the water. Only added 1 tbls of sugar as 3 tbls seemed a bit OTT (over the top). I found that it did use all the additional reserved flour. When making again I would just retain 1/3 cup flour as I ended up kneading the dough for a lot longer than should have been required. Really easy to make, tasty and healthy as well. Also makes nice toast. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap Feb 2012."
"This bread is as delicious as it is healthy! I halved the recipe and cooked in the bread machine. My only problem was that after the bread rose to a beautiful dome-shaped top, it fell. That must have been due to a mistake on my part. We loved it toasted and will definitely be making it again!"
"Agree completely with the previous reviewers - this is fabulous bread! LIG - thanks for the reco from your Best of 2010 Cookbook! I made one loaf (halved the recipe) in my bread machine, and the only change I made was to use 1/2 spelt flour because I'm on a spelt kick right now. Like LIG, I had to add extra flour as it was sticky, I only added about 1/2 cup, but if I was kneading by hand, would have added more. Love this bread, and will make it again! Thanks for posting, Chef1Mom!"
