  • 2 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup cracked wheat
  • 1 cup uncooked oatmeal
  • 1 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 4-5 cups white whole wheat flour
  1. In a large bowl of a stand mixer add water and honey. Sprinkle yeast on top. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in cracked wheat, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, wheat germ and oats.
  3. Add oil, salt and vital wheat gluten. Mix on low speed.
  4. Add flour 1 cup at a time, mixing between each cup. You might not need all 5 cups of flour. Once you've added 4 cups, begin adding at 1/4 cup at a time until the dough comes together but isn't too dry.

  9. Divide dough in half. Shape into loaves and place in a greased bread pan.
  10. Cover and let rise for at least 30 minutes.
  11. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 40 minutes.
  12. Remove bread from pan 5-10 minutes after baking.
  13. Let bread fully cool on a baking rack before slicking.
