Whole Wheat Blueberry-Nut Bread

Total Time

Prep: 1-1/4 hours + rising Bake: 45 min.


1 loaf (2 pounds, 16 slices)

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

  • 1-1/3 cups water (70° to 80°)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries or cranberries
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • Additional olive oil


  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 9x5-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown, tent with foil after 30 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack to cool. Brush top with oil.
