  • 1⁄4 ounce active dry yeast (1 envelope)
  • 1 1⁄4 cups warm water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flax seed meal (ground flax seed)
  • 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1⁄2 cups bread flour
  • cornmeal
  • Place ingredients in your bread machine as directed by your manufacturer.
  • Set to dough cycle. Check the consistency after about 10 minutes - if it looks dry, add a little more water.
  • After initial rise, remove, shape in a large round loaf (or whatever you like), let rise again on a cornmeal dusted baking pan.
  • Preheat oven to 400 deg. If desired, brush loaf with an egg wash (one egg beaten with 1 tbl. cold water). Slash loaf with sharp knife. Place in oven. After 15 min., reduce temperature to 350 deg.
  • Bake for an additional 25 minutes or until loaf is done - an instant thermometer should read 205 deg.
