Healthy Multigrain Bread


Healthy delicious bread is possible when the correct combination of flour is used. A mixture of wheat germ, oats, yellow cornmeal, soy, rye and bread flour make this a well-rounded loaf. Top with sesame seeds before baking. Rice bran oil may be found at most health food stores.

    1 cups water, warmed to 110
    1 package rapid-rise yeast
    2 tablespoons mild molasses
    2 tablespoons clover honey or pure maple syrup
    2 tablespoons rice bran or canola oil
    1 teaspoons salt
    2 tablespoons fat-free dry milk
    2 tablespoons wheat germ
    3 cups bread flour
     cup thick rolled oats
    ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
    2 tablespoons soy flour
    2 tablespoons rye or pumpernickel flour

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil or melted butter
    1 teaspoon sesame seeds

    1 teaspoon caraway seeds


1.  Bread machine method: Measure the water, yeast,
     molasses, honey, oil, salt, dry milk, wheat germ, bread flour,
     oats, all-purpose flour, cornmeal, soy and rye flour in bread
     pan. Program for a whole-wheat, dough cycle and large
     loaf. This loaf is too large to leave in the bread machine, so
     remove after the dough cycle is complete and go to step 4.

2.  Hand method: In an extra large bowl, whisk the water, yeast,
     molasses, honey, oil, salt, dry milk, and wheat germ. Stir in        
     the bread flour, oats, all-purpose flour, cornmeal, soy and rye.

3.  Knead the dough on a well-floured breadboard until smooth
     and elastic. Turn the oven on to 200
, when you can feel the
     heat, turn oven off. Set the dough in large oiled bowl and let
     it rise in a warm oven until double.

4.  Punch down, then shape the dough into a ball. Set on a
     nonstick baking sheet, flatten slightly. Brush with oil or
     butter, then sprinkle with sesame and caraway seeds.

5.  Let rise until double or for about 30-45 minutes.

6.  Bake in a preheated 350
oven for 35 minutes.
