Fabulous Homemade Bread

Making your own bread is delicious and easier than you think. It will also save your family money since it costs less than $.50 a loaf to make 100% whole wheat bread. Plus, you have the added bonus of the amazing "feels like home" smell in your house all afternoon!

Fabulous Homemade Bread
This is my favorite recipe that we use on a regular basis. It also makes amazing French toast.

1 cup quick oats or flax meal
 cup brown sugar, packed
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 ½ Tbsp yeast
3–4 cups white bread flour (or additional whole wheat flour)
¼ cup dry milk powder
1 Tbsp white vinegar
6 Tbsp gluten flour
 cup oil
2 tsp salt
3 ½ cups hot water

Mix according to basic bread making instructions (found here). Bake at 350° F for 30–35 minutes or until golden brown. Turn loaves out onto cooling rack. With the oatmeal and all whole wheat flour, each loaf has about 50 grams of fiber. With the flax meal, each loaf has about 60 grams of fiber. Makes 2 loaves.
