  1. Add water, yeast, canola oil and honey to the pan of the bread machine; stir to dissolve yeast. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together oat bran, whole wheat flour, bread flour, flax seed meal and salt. Pour this mixture into the pan of the bread machine. Select Whole Wheat cycle; press Start.
  3. After the dough has risen, remove it from the bread machine and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form into a loaf shape and place in a lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

This bread is really good. I like the high fiber content. My only changes were: reduced white bread flour to 1 cup and added an extra 1/3 cup wheat flour. I also added about 1 1/2 tsp of vit...

This was very good. I followed the ingredients exactly and it came out very good-very soft in the inside. The outside is alittle "hard" but not too bad. This bread tasted great with honey alon...

Way too dry as is. Needed more gluten and about 3/4 cup more water.

healthy and moist. does not hold up well for making sandwiches but delicious eaten plain with maybe a little cheese on the side.

This would make a good english muffin bread. It raised very little and think that gluten would have have helped it to raise rather than stay dense. Also felt it needed more salt. But it was ...

I ignored the directions and made this start to finish in my breadmachine.(on whole wheat setting) Although I added 1 1/2 tsp vital gluten, it did not rise much. The top looks rough and the bre...
