Lord Have Mercy It's Good! This recipe makes the lightest, most delicious bread! It's soft like white bread, but of course has all the healthy ingredients that your heart and body needs. Are you on a diet? Did you know that flaxseed is a natural appetite suppressant? I eat a piece, toasted, for breakfast, and am full till lunch, sometimes till the early afternoon. It's really amazing. Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients for World's Best Flaxseed Bread

2 c wheat flour
1 1/2 c flax seed
1 c flour
1 T olive oil
1/8 c sugar
1/2 t salt
1 T dry yeast
1 3/4 c water

Recipe Directions for World's Best Flaxseed Bread

  1. Dissolve your yeast in the warm water. This takes about 5 minutes -- the water will become creamy-looking.

  2. Add to this the sugar, oil, salt, flaxseed meal and one cup of whole wheat flour. Mix this with your spoon till it's incorporated -- really easy to do.

  3. Now, add in the other cup of whole wheat flour and stir... then add in your one cup of all-purpose flour. Mix till it holds together -- this will only take a minute or two.

  4. Attach the dough hook to your stand mixer, put in the dough and let the mixer knead this dough for AT LEAST 10 minutes. Set the timer. If it kneads it for 12 minutes, no problem. If you don't have a stand mixer, then knead by hand on a floured countertop for about 10 - 15 minutes.

  5. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and put the dough into it, then spray the top of it. You just want to moisten the outside of it so it won't stick to the bowl.

  6. Let it rise till it has FULLY DOUBLED. Depending on the temperature, this could happen in about an hour, or upwards of two hours. Focus on the dough, not the time -- when it has doubled, then you're ready to go.

  7. Spray a bread pan (9" X 5") with cooking spray.

  8. Punch down your dough (don't knead it any more) and put it into your bread pan. Shape it with your oil-covered hands so it fits snugly into the pan.

  9. Let the bread rise till it has come up about 1 1/2 inches above the top of the pan.

  10. Preheat the oven to 350F -- bake the bread for about 40 - 45 minutes. Once it's done, put it on your counter to cool for about 5 minutes.

  11. Remove it from the bread pan (it comes out easily) and let it come to room temperature (if you can wait that long!) or at least till it's only barely warm so it will easily slice.

  12. 1 serving = 2 toast slices of a 16 slice loaf. Sandwich slice would yield 20 pieces.
