    • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried active baking yeast
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 3 tablespoons honey

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Add water, yeast, oil and honey to the pan of the bread machine; stir to dissolve yeast. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. In a large bowl, stir together oats, wholemeal flour, bread flour, flaxseed and salt. Pour this mixture into the pan of the bread machine. Select Wholemeal cycle; press Start.
    3. After the dough has risen, remove it from the bread machine and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form into a loaf shape and place in a lightly greased 23x12cm loaf tin. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    4. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

    Something else. excellent! I used the bread machine for the dough cycle and made rolls from the dough (let rise 45 minutes), absolutely amazing served with Honey! thank you so much for this recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This bread is really good. I like the high fibre content. I used more wholemeal than plain flour, and it was still great. The bread not only tastes great, it looks great, too! Thanks for a great, high fibre recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was very good. I followed the ingredients exactly and it came out very good-very soft in the inside. The outside is a little "hard" but not too bad. This bread tasted great with honey alone or with a chicken sandwich. Thanks!  -  29 Sep 2008
