Oatmeal, Wheat & Flax Bread (Bread Machine Version)

1-1/2 c. luke warm water
2 Tblsp. oil
1 Tblsp. honey
1/2 tsp. salt
3-3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. uncooked oatmeal
2 Tblsp. flax seed powder
2 tsp. dry yeast (not rapid rise)

Add ingredients in order as suggested by your bread maker recommendations. Set machine to wheat bread cycle and select 2-lb loaf size. Start machine and let bake. Yields: 2-lb loaf

**Baker's Note: this is a dense, semi heavy bread that can be used for sandwiches quite nicely, however it will not be as "light" as most sandwich breads are.

Thank you for your comment. It is a tasty bread but it's dense. I think I used semi old yeast as mine didn't rise the full way but it did rise enough to get a 1-1/2lb height worth of rise. Still the measurements are on track for a full 2-lb. loaf.
