"I was inspired by the Harvest Grain Blend that King Arthur Flour sells, but being in Canada, the cost of shipping is prohibitive enough to make me come up with my own version. Add 1/2 to 2/3 cup to your favourite bread for extra crunch, flavour, and nutrition! I suggest replacing 2 tbsp of each cup of flour with the mixture as a starting point. I've also added some barley flakes and 7 grain cereal to my mix. Store in a tightly sealed container. Another way to use the mix is to make a "soaker", which you do by pouring 1 cup of hot water over 2/3 cup of the mix, and allowing it to soak overnight. Then add this to your bread mix, ensuring to subtract out the 1 cup of water and 2/3 cup of flour from the recipe you're working with."

"Delicious and nutritious! I did the overnight soak method and used it in my recipe #380260, so now my innocent wheat bread is on the equivalent of steroids! lol! Thanks, Katzen! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap."
"Cut this down for only one loaf. Bread is rising now."
"OK, so I am sitting here eating this mix and feeling like a bird. I am gonna get HUGE brownie points from the hubby on this one. He is always begging me to make bread with "whole wheat, high fiber bread with lots of seeds and nuts" and I am pretty sure this recipe will deliver just that!!!! I have stashed it away and will make it with some bread next week using your soak method. I did sub flax meal for the rye flakes and then subbed oatmeal for the flax seed. THANKS! Made as a recipenap for March 2010 Veggie Swap. UPDATE: I continue to use this in most of the breads I make as we love multi-grain breads. Most recently I used it in Recipe #412480, subbing out the nuts for this grain blend. YUMMO! We love it and I highly recommend it."
"I originally tagged this to use on my own, but then decided to use it as part of your recipe #384106 #384106 & it all turned out just great! I followed your introductory instructions in the sourdough bread recipd for amounts & went on from there! Wonderful, wonderful taste combo what with all those flakes & seeds (just the kind of bread that satisfies me)! AND, I've got a lot of this grain blend to bake more bread (I can think of a handful of friends who'd love to be gifted a loaf!) ~ Thanks for a great recipe!
