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.
