Magazine Monday #22: Oatmeal Flax Bread

The Christmas baking frenzy is over, so it's back to "normal" foodblogging. Here is a recipe from, again, Canadian Living. I make way more bread than what I post here, but I typically make the same one, that being the no-knead bread from this post. But, I didn't want to wait a day for my dough to do its thing so I made this recipe from the November 2003 issue (I highly suspect that the recipe isn't available on the CL web site because it has been included in their new cookbook - totally annoying). I've made this recipe several times and it always turns out great, but when I went to bake this I realized too late that I didn't have enough flax seeds! So I substituted with some flax meal instead. Also, I halved the recipe because I didn't need two loaves, and I omitted the oat bran as I never have any on hand.

Oatmeal Flax Bread

5 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup flax seeds
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 tsp quick rising or instant yeast
1 tbsp salt
3 1/4 cups warm water
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup oat bran

Instructions here.

I'll definitely be trying this recipe! I have to skip the oat bran too. I couldn't find it when I went shopping today. Everything else in the recipe, I already have.
