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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 24, 2012

Because I don't have a bread machine, I had to adjust the recipe somewhat for my stand mixer. I found it dry and suspect that most people will need to add water after the 5 minutes of mixing. In the stand mixer, I add the nuts and cranberries after adding 2 cups of the whole wheat flour. Then I only add enough flour to make the dough the proper consistency for a heavy bread.

I like the flax seed and oatmeal additions to the bread as it is healthier.
