Number of Servings: 20


    2 c hot water
    2 Tbsp yeast
    1 teas sugar
    1/4 c wheat germ
    1/4 c ground flaxseed
    3 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
    1/4 c sugar
    1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
    1/4 c canola oil
    2 c white flour
    1 c + 2.5 c whole wheat flour


Proof yeast in water and sugar. After about 10 mins (when yeast is foamy) stir in wheat germ, flaxseed, wheat gluten, sugar, molasses, and oil.

Mix in white flour until you see strips of gluten (about 100 strokes). Then mix in 1 c whole wheat flour.

Pour dough on a large board for kneading (or right on the table) and knead in another 2.5 c whole wheat flour, adding 1/2 c at a time. Knead for about 10 mins until dough is solid, flexible, and smooth (not sticky).

Grease a large bowl and put the dough in to rise for 1 hour, covered with a wet towel.

Punch down and form into 2 loaves. Place the shaped loaves into greased pans and let rise another 45 mins. Bake at 350 for ~40 mins.
