    Only one word for this recipe and that’s EXCELLENT! Thank you so much for it, I don’t intend to buy anymore bread from the shops! I’ve made it twice and it was lovely.

    I have previously shied away from making my own breads because they come out too dense. I made this one using 3 cups whole wheat flour and 3 tbsp gluten and it came out Great! Wonderful flavor and perfect density to use with soup or for making a sandwich.

    Wonderful soft loaf, easy to cut. Only minor changes. I use honey for sugar, mix my own bread flour 1 tbsp gluten per cup, processed quick oatmeal for oat flour. Used the bread machine on dough cycle, allowed to rise in warm oven approx 1 hr. then 360 deg.F for 1/2 hour. Best WW bread I have ever made. Thank you! My husband and I are both diabetics so we need all the help we can get to keep the sugar controlled.

    I have tried several bread recipes and never really liked them. This bread is wonderful, as a sandwich and toasted. I do not have a bread machine, so I made mine with a stand mixer and baked in the oven.

    I made this for my family on a snow day. My fiancee, who is pretty skeptical about wheat bread, loved it as well as the kids.
