MULTIGRAIN AND FLAXSEED BREAD




I was thrilled with the outcome of this recipe. Never imagined this bread to be so tasty and delicious......I mean.....just scroll through the list of ingredients and see how healthy this bread is!! Thank you Marye for the lovely recipe!

When we buy Multigrain bread at our local bakery they cut down on the multigrain! This bread was FILLED LOADED with flaxseed and other grains! 



This recipe is a keeper and Iv done it thrice already! Ok. Enough raving ..You need to try it to believe it. You can eat it plain or toasted with your favourite jam or butter......or evn plain with some scrambled eggs...........just the way I like it!

If you don't own a stand mixer, you can always knead by hand. a.......lthough kneading for a good 10- 15 minutes might be tiring! But on the bright side.............you just got yourself a good arm workout!!


Refrigerate the loaf if you want it to last longer, Stays good for about 10 days in the refrigerator.
