Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 1 loaf
Ingredients
  • 1 ½ cups (190.5g) bread flour
  • 1 ½ cups (180g) whole wheat graham flour
  • ½ cup (45g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (235ml warm water
  • 2 Tbsp (13g) ground flax seed *(can also use chia/flax seed mix)
  • ¼ cup (85g) honey
  • 1 pkg. Active dry yeast (2¼ teaspoons, or 7g)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil (27.2g)
  • 1 tsp salt (5.69g)
Instructions
  1. If using a bread machine, add ingredients and follow according to manufacturer instructions.
  2. If using a stand mixer with the dough hook, place all ingredients in bowl in the order listed.
  3. Mix until fully incorporated and ball forms.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for approximately 5 minutes and place in a large bowl, lightly lined with a very thin layer of oil. Turn to coat all sides.
  5. Cover with a cloth and let sit in a warm area for 40 minutes or until doubled in size. *see note at bottom.
  6. Again, on lightly floured surface, punch down and knead. Roll out dough until all bubbles are gone.
  7. Now - roll dough in a tight roll and place in loaf pan (8.5”x4”) lined with parchment paper, cover and let rise again for 40 minutes.
  8. Set oven rack to middle. Preheat oven to 350℉ (177℃).
  9. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until nice golden brown on top.
  10. When done, keep in pan for 15 minutes, then remove from pan to finish cooling on baking rack. Store in air-tight container for up to three days.
Notes
For better results, warm bread pan first before putting in the dough. The way I do this is to set the oven on 250℉ (121℃) and warm the pan in the oven for 30 seconds. Put the dough in the pan and return to oven to warm for 30 minutes. Don't forget to turn off the oven during rise time.
