Health Grain Bread
2 1/3 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil (I use the extra light)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup oat bran
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1 tablespoon cracked wheat
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons bread machine yeast OR 1 packet active dry yeast (If using active dry yeast, dissolve it in the warm milk before combining with the remaining ingredients.)
Mix, knead and let your dough rise until doubled using your favorite method; bread machine, manual or stand mixer. Divide dough in half and shape each half into a smooth ball. Place side by side in a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled in size.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown; cover loosely with foil after 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
When completely cool, carefully separate the two loaves; if necessary, use a serrated bread knife to help separate them. Don't forget to share one loaf with a friend! :)
