Whole Wheat Blueberry-Nut Bread Recipe
This loaf owes its healthy heartiness to a combination of flax seeds and whole-wheat flour. Moist and flavorful, it has a nutty texture that’s great for sandwiches or toast.—Amy Blom, Marietta, Georgia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1-1/4 hours + rising Bake: 45 min. YIELD:16 servings
- 1-1/3 cups water (70° to 80°)

- 1. In bread machine pan, place all the ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting.
- 2. Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed. Just before the final kneading (your machine may audibly signal this), add blueberries and walnuts.
- 3. When the cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Punch down; shape into a loaf. Place in a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
