High Fiber Rye Seed Bread

Delicious, high fiber seed bread

The Wife and I have gone on the South Beach diet, and while searching for a good whole grain high fiber bread,  I sort of made this one up from one of our bread maker recepes.

This recepe makes a 2.5 pound loaf. We have a Philips horizontal 2.5 pound loaf bread maker.

Put the ingredients in the bread maker in the following order:

Water - 2 1/4 cups

Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp

Skim milk powder - 1/2 cup

Salt - 2 tsp

Shortening - 2 tbsp (we use tenderflake, b/c it's natural lard, not hydrogenated junk like crisco)

Molasses - 3 tbsp

Whole wheat flour - 2 cups (we use stone ground organic)

Wheat gluten - 1/2 cup (helps glue things together. without this you get a crumbly brick)

Rye flour - 2 cups

Wheat Bran - 4 tbsp

Assorted seeds - 1/2 cup (sunflower, millet, whole oats, flax seed) - play with this to suit your taste.

Bread Machine yeast - 1tbsp

Put the ingredients in the breadmaker in the order listed above, select the whole wheat program, and the 2.5 pound loaf size, and your taste for crust color. This results in a very tasty, dark, high fiber bread. It's a bit heavy, but my personal tastes favor that kind of thing.

- Notes -

I was a bit challenged trying to figure out what wheat gluten was, I found it from these folks in the baking aisle at our local grocery:


enjoy !
