- 1 cup whole grains (oat, wheat berries, barley, etc. in any combination from the bulk department)
- 1/4 cup flax seed
- 1 cup unbleached white or whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
- 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450° F.
Place the grains and flax in a blender or food processor and pulse to coarsely grind. In a mixing bowl combine the ground grains, flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl combine the honey, oil and milk. Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and stir just until you achieve a soft dough.
Form the mixture into a loaf shape about 3 inches around and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place in the oven and reduce the temperature to 425° F. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the crust is deep golden brown.
This bread is at its best served warm out of the oven with local, cultured butter. (However, it also makes great toast on day 2.)
