“This recipe is from King Arthur Flour. This makes a great bread! This is the recipe from their website, I actually did not have the bread improver it calls for, but if you add a 1/4 vital wheat gluten I think it does the same thing, because it came out great when I made it (if you add the wheat gluten, then subtract 1/4 cup whole wheat flour) I also used their grain mix instead of the sunflower seeds and walnuts, but I'm sure whatever you like will taste great. Enjoy!”
