Oat Bran Health Bread Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 cups oat bran
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/3 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Add water, yeast, canola oil and honey to the pan of the bread machine; stir to dissolve yeast. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together oat bran, whole wheat flour, bread flour, flax seed meal and salt. Pour this mixture into the pan of the bread machine. Select Whole Wheat cycle; press Start.
  3. After the dough has risen, remove it from the bread machine and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form into a loaf shape and place in a lightly greased 9×5 inch loaf pan. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
