“Flaxseeds are a healthy addition to almost any diet. Research shows that this food is a real cancer-fighter. This is a really good bread. Rustic and nutty flavored but not overpowering. My DH enjoyed this bread toasted. I made a second batch and made 6 rolls and a mini loaf (freehand) of bread which I then added butter and garlic to after it was cooked, then toasted for a spaghetti dinner. DH LOVED it this way. This recipe adopted from the Caring4Cancer newsletter. ABM directions- below Time includes resting and rising time. These times will vary depending on method, altitude and temperature in your neck of the woods. NOTE: (3/8/12) Most everyone has had to add in the additional flour. I used an additional 1/2 cup as well. I still follow the directions keeping 1 c aside to add in afterwards because I tried it adding it in in the beginning and it did not seem to come together as well, too dry to start. I also have made this using 2 c whole wheat flour +3 1/2 c AP flour to start and then used less than 1/2 c of additional flour. Please use your own experiance and jusdgement.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set aside 1 cup all-purpose flour from the total amount.
  2. Mix remaining flour, ground flaxseed, sugar, salt, and yeast in a large bowl.
  3. Heat water, milk, and oil until hot to the touch (about 125-130° F or 50-55°C). DO NOT BOIL.
  4. Stir hot liquids into dry mixture. Mix in enough reserved flour to make a soft dough that does not stick to the bowl.
  5. Turn out onto floured board and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
  6. Cut dough in half and shape into loaves.
  7. Place into two greased (8½ x 4½ inches or 21 x 12 cm) loaf pans.
  8. Cover and let rise in a warm place until dough has doubled in volume (about 40-50 minutes).
  9. Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 30-35 minutes.
  10. Remove from pans and let cool on wire racks.
  11. for ABM- follow your ABM directions for ingredient order. Check during first cycle to see if more flour is required and add in as needed. Set to 2 lb loaf if using full cycle.
  12. If using dough cycle only seperate into 2 loaves into greased pans or as I do on bread stone covered in cornmeal. Set for 2nd rise and then cook as directed. I made 1 loaf and 6 sandwich muffins with this recipe.
