READY IN: 4hrs
YIELD: 2 loaves




  • In a small heavy sauce pan bring 1 1/2 cups water, honey, molasses and butter to a boil.
  • Slowly stir in the 1 1/4 cups of multi grain cereal. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl combine cooked cereal and the 1 cup of cold milk. Allow to cool to approximately 85 degrees.
  • Add the yeast and stir to dissolve. Continue stirring to combine ingredients or use a large mixer to mix well.
  • Mix the flours and salt in a separate bowl. Attach dough hook to mixer and start on low speed.
  • Add flour to cereal mixture one cup at a time.
  • Add flax and sunflower seeds and nuts.
  • Continue mixing until dough cleans the sides of the bowl (you may need to add more flour).
  • Remove from mixer and place on floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes.
  • Clean the mixer bowl, add two tablespoons of vegetable oil to clean bowl and spread around in bowl to cover sides.
  • Place dough in bowl and flip it over so the oily side is on top.
  • Turn on your oven light (this provides the warmth to proof your dough). Place bowl in the oven and close door. Let rise until dough is double in size - about one hour.
  • Remove from oven, place on floured surface, separate into 2 pieces, knead each piece for 5 minutes, form each into a cylinder to fit the loaf pans. Oil loaf pans, place dough in loaf pans and return to oven.
  • Remember to leave the light on, let dough rise for 1 hour or until dough mounds above the pan, then bake for 35-40 minutes at 375 degrees.
