  1. Pour warm water and honey into a large bowl, and stir to dissolve the honey. Sprinkle the yeast over the top of the liquid, and let stand until the yeast bubbles and forms a creamy layer, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, gluten, flax seeds, flax meal, rolled oats, sesame seeds, quinoa, sunflower seeds, and salt until the seeds are dispersed evenly. Pour the flour mixture into the yeast mixture, add the coconut oil, and mix everything together. Scoop the dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead until smooth and springy, about 15 minutes. Allow dough to rest for 15 minutes, then knead for another 10 minutes.
  3. Form the dough into a ball, place in an oiled bowl, and turn the dough over several times to coat with oil. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Grease 2 9x5-inch loaf pans. Punch down the dough, and cut into 2 pieces. Form each piece into a loaf, place into the loaf pans, seam sides down, and cover the pans with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake the loaves in the preheated oven until the loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in pans about 10 minutes before turning out to finish cooling on racks.

So delicious!! I couldn't find vital wheat gluten, so I omitted it, but it turned out great anyway. I also added more water in the kneading process. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

This is great bread! I had to make some omissions based on what I had handy (no sesame, sunflower seeds or coconut oil. I tossed in some wheat germ instead - otherwise followed the recipe except...

One detail: If you've had breast cancer that was estrogen-receptor positive, you should avoid flax seed and flax meal. Either leave them out, or add more of the other seeds.

Let me preface this by saying I am just starting to bake bread. It is very difficult to find a recipe with 100% whole wheat. The only modification I made to this recipe was to add an additiona...

This was my first time attempting bread and it came out great! I didn't have the flax seeds (added a bit extra flax seed meal) or the coconut oil (substituted toasted sesame oil) and needed to ...

The bread was tasty and good for sandwiches but the flour / water content was off. I used more water and approximately 5 1/2 c flour.

The bread turned out beautiful. I did have to use 2 cups of water instead of 1/34. Also when you cover it, don't put saran wrap on it, it will stick. It was so good. I will make it again.

should have read the reviews first, but the water/flour ratio is off. I am somewhat new at bread and kept thinking that I was not doing something right, but it was the ratios.

Delicious! Very easy to make! I added 2 cups of water instead because 1 3/4 wasn't enough. My whole family loved! Yum!! :)
