Trivia: Rich in omega 3 fatty acid, flax seed benefits to heart health and reduces cholesterol levels.

Tip: Serious bread bakers will want a top notch bread machine. You can't go wrong with the Panasonic SD-YD250 Automatic Bread Maker. In my view, its the Cadillac of bread machines.

Flax Seed Bread Recipe

Tip: Grind flax seeds in a coffee grinder or a spice grinder.

1 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup water that has been sitting to reach room temperature
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp honey (liquid)
2 cups flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1/2 cup oat bran
1/3 cup wheat bran
2 tbsp flax seeds
1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast

Wash for the Flax Seed Bread Recipe

1 egg
1 tsp water

Refer to the manufacturer's instructions and add the ingredients in the order they recommend. Use the dough or manual cycle. After the cycle is over, place the dough on a floured kneading surface. If the dough is not easy to handle, knead is some extra flour until it is. Cover the dough for quarter of an hour, then punch it down.

Using a little extra flour on the kneading surface, shape the dough into a ball. Lightly grease a baking sheet then place the ball of dough on the sheet. Flatten it somewhat. Cover and let rise for about half an hour. The dough should double in size.

Score the top of the dough three times, then brush with the egg wash.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake for about half an hour. The bread is done when it sounds hollow when you tap it on the bottom.
