Recipe: Flax Seed Bread

1 1/3 cups water
2 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups white bread flour
1 1/3 cups whole wheat bread flour
1/2 cup flax seed, coarsely ground
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

  • Add ingredients to bread machine pan accordingto manufacturers directions.
  • Select Whole Grain or Basic White cycleand press Start.

    Makes one (1 1/2 pound) loaf or 12 servings.

    *Since my “coffee grinder” isa part of my coffee maker, I use my blender to grind the flaxseed (a food processor will not work, it simply whirls the seedsaround making a bit of dust in the “process”). I startout running the blender at its highest speed for a few seconds,then pulse just until a coarsely ground flour-like mixture isobtained, stopping at intervals to use a thin spatula to stirup around the bottom of the blender to prevent “packing”.

    We ve been eating flax seeds for years, but mainly in shakes and as a substitute for eggs in baking, but this bread is a great way to get the health benefits of flax into your family. Hi there. I haven t calculated that and have heard there can be issues with those calculators. And it would depend on what you use for the eggs. There are very few, however. Do you have a reliable site where you could plug in the ingredients?
