“Flaxseeds are a healthy addition
to almost any diet.”
6½ cups all-purpose flour(for best nutrition use
whole wheat flour)
¾ cup ground flaxseeds (flax meal)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon fast-rising instant yeast
2 cups water
1 cup 2% (low-fat) organic milk
1 tablespoon canola oil
Set aside 1 cup all-purpose flour from the total amount.
Mix remaining flour, ground flaxseed,
sugar, salt, and yeast in a large bowl. Heat water, milk, and oil
until hot to the touch (about 125-130° F or 50-55°C). DO NOT BOIL.
Stir hot liquids into dry mixture. Mix in enough reserved flour to
make a soft dough that does not stick to the bowl. Turn out onto
floured board and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
Cut dough in half and shape into
loaves. Makes two loaves. Place into two greased (8½ x 4½ inches or
21 x 12 cm) loaf pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until
dough has doubled in volume (about 40-50 minutes). Bake at 400°F
(200°C) for 30-35 minutes. Remove from pans and let cool on wire
Rebecca Notes: Flaxseeds are a healthy addition to almost any diet.
Research shows that this food is a real cancer-fighter. Try this
delicious recipe for classic flax bread. For best nutrition and best
results, purchase whole flax seeds and grind the flax seeds into
meal just before making this bread. A small electric coffee grinder
will do very nicely!
