Honey Oat Flax Bread Recipe, by request - many many requests...

I think this is my fourth batch of this bread. It is so good! After telling about it in several posts, I've been asked for the recipe a buncha times. So, here is the recipe for Aimee's Honey Oat Flax Bread...kinda. I tweaked a few things, as I always seem to do. Enjoy!

Honey Oat Flax Bread
Scant Tbsp Yeast
3 Tbsp Honey (Molasses is good also!)
2 1/4 cups Warm Water
9 Tbsp Powdered Buttermilk (I have also used regular powdered milk)

Place all in the bowl of a heavy stand mixer and let sit 5 minutes or so until yeast is bubbly. Then add:
2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 cups Bread Flour
1 1/3 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 cup Flaxseeds
2 Tbsp Ground Flaxseeds
scant Tbsp Wheat Gluten
1 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt

Mix with dough hook in stand mixer on low just till it comes together, then turn up the power and knead until it forms a ball that pulls from the sides of the bowl. Continue to knead a few more minutes.

Cover bowl and let stand for an hour or until doubled. Punch down, remove from bowl and twist dough (like your wringing a towel - I always thinks this makes a nice texture inside??) Place dough in a buttered 13" Pullman pan or two regular sized loaf pans. Let rise until almost doubled again. Slide lid on pan, if using a Pullman. Bake 375 deg for 40 minutes. Turn out on rack and resist eating the whole loaf before it cools!

We really enjoy this with peach jam and goat cheese!

Looks delicious! I'll be making my own version, I'm sure! (And I am ordering a pullman loaf pan from my store...)

I'm loving all your recipes. Quick question: How do you keep a bento box cold (or warm ) if needed?

Angela - There is a thermal lunchbag that goes with the Laptop Lunchbox. I put one of those super-thin cold packs in it (think I got them at Ikea) and it stays cold all day. Thanks for the Award, btw! That's cool!

Thanks. My son will take a lunch to school next year and I'm planning ahead. :)
