Flax Bread
9-11 ounces water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbs vegetable oil (canola or peanut preferably)*
2 tbs molasses
2 1/4 c bread flour
1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
1 tsp vital wheat gluten
1/2 c organic flax seeds
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

All ingredients must be at room temperature. (70-80 degrees F, or around 21 degrees C) Use less water in the given range for high altitudes and higher humidity and weather conditions. Add ingredients to bread pan in the exact order given, making a well in the center of the dry ingredients to place yeast. Put your bread machine on a "whole wheat" setting. When finished cooking, place on a wire rack to cool.

* note: using peanut oil will help keep your bread fresher longer
