November 11, 2015


Flax-Seed-Bread-Recipe-2FLAX SEED BREAD

1 Cup olive oil
1 Cup maple syrup or honey
5 Cups warm water
1 Cup cornmeal
2 Teaspoons salt
4 Tablespoons flax seed
2 Tablespoons yeast
10-14 Cups of flour {white, whole wheat, or a combination}

-Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and use enough flour to make it thick and non-sticky.
-Let the dough rise for 45 minutes, until doubled in size.
-Knead and put into greased bread pans.
-Let it rise for another 45 minutes.
-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until bread is golden and makes a hollow sound when tapped. {I like to under cook ours slightly to get a soft, moist, chewy texture}.
-Turn out immediately and cool on a cooling rack.

This flax seed bread is simple, yummy, and a new staple in our house. But best of all, our first taste of it began with a dear friend’s act of kindness. A couple of hours after arriving home from a long car trip with the boys, my neighbor Becky pulled into my driveway with a half gallon of milk and a loaf of this flax seed bread. We’d been out of town for over a month and Thane was deployed, so fresh food and the familiar face of a good friend was a welcomed sight. What a blessing she was! And not just on that day. She’s opened her home to us countless times, watched our boys more times than I can remember, and is always a fresh source of encouragement. Also, she’s a fellow Army wife who recently went through a deployment of her own. That means she’s well acquainted with the joys and challenges of it all, and there is such sweet fellowship in that. This bread will always be a warm reminder of her friendship, and I’m so grateful to God for putting her in my path!

One last thing, if you’re looking for a healthy snack idea for the whole family {with no refined sugar!}, see my banana bran muffin recipe here. Happy baking!
