7-Grain Whole Wheat Bread

by Diann Smith

Yield: 1 (1 1/2 pound) loaf 12 – 15 slices

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 6 Tablespoons wheat gluten
  • 3 Tbsp honey or molasses
  • 2 teaspoon salt (heaping)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons SAF yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup cooked 7-grain cereal (I use Kashi cereal), cooled to room temp

Place all ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order according to the manufacturer’s directions. Set on whole wheat cycle, light crust. This makes a LARGE loaf, which completely fills my 1 1/2 lb machine. It makes delicious, light, airy bread that is great for sandwiches, dinner rolls, etc.
