Flax Seed, Whole Wheat and Wheat Germ Bread

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on March 8, 2010

For our last anniversary, Dad-oo treated me to my very first bread machine. I know, romantic isn’t? :-) Actually, that’s what I asked for, and it is one of my favorite anniversary gifts every.

Since I’ve had the bread machine, I’ve kind of turned into a bread-making freak. I use it at least twice a week, sometimes more if I’m really in the mood for some carb-loaded goodness. Bread, dinner rolls, hot dog buns. Pizza dough, cinnamon rolls and English muffins. Mmmmmm, now I’m hungry.

I’ve been experimenting with a bread recipe for the last couple of months, trying to perfect it so I could share it with everyone. Now, it’s finally ready. Tada! A healthy, whole wheat bread that isn’t too heavy, with a slightly sweet and nutty flavor. And when it’s fresh from the oven, it makes a killer PBJ.

Just pop in the wet ingredients.

Then add the dry.

Set the program, and in a few short hours, your bread is ready. Plus your house smells heavenly.

This bread looks like its the perfect texture! And so healthy with all the whole grains and flax. I’ve been trying to make a good gluten free bread that isn’t all just starchy flours. I hope I can figure one out that looks as appetizing as yours!

@Muthering Heights, I couldn’t live without mine. I think I’d starve. :-)

Your bread looks delicious. I had to sell my bread machine since I hated how crispy (burnt on the bottom) the bread ended up being. I would like to try again with a better machine – yet not super-expensive. Do you have any recommendations? Do you love yours? I’d like a 1-2 pound loaf, if possible. Thank you for your yummy recipe.

I have a Wolfgang Puck Bistro bread machine. It’s amazing. It does 2-2.5 pound loaves. I think my hubby ordered it from Overstock.com for under $100.

Thanks, Allison. I’ll have to look that one up and hint loudly to my husband for Christmas. I can’t think of any other gift-giving event before then… maybe Thanksgiving! We’ll want fresh, home-made bread for dinner, won’t we? :)

Thanks, Allison for making me be a proud owner of the bread that I just bake with your fantastic “Flax Seed Bread, Whole Wheat and Wheat Germ Bread recipe” My friends will around when I was baking this bread and they told me that they will not believe that it was made by me if not seeing with their own eyes. Never came across such a soft nice texture wholemeal bread. All of them are asking for the recipe now. Thanks once again and hope to get more healthy recipe from you. God bless you for the sharing.
