This bread is a fantastic way to get heart-healthy omega-3s into your diet (or your kids’ diet) without having to choke down pills or oils. The omega-3s survive the baking process intact and lend a nutty warmth to the bread. Sprinkle the top with flax-seeds or sesame seeds, for a wholesome and pleasing texture.

1 packet active dry yeast

1 T sugar

2 3/4c warm water

3 tablespoons honey

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 c whole flax-seed (golden or dark, or a mixture of both)

2 c (8oz or 227g) Better Batter All Purpose Flour

3/4 c teff flour

1/4 c sorghum flour


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8×4 inch loaf pan.

In a small bowl, combine yeast, sugar and warm water. Let sit for about 5 minutes, or until foamy.

In the bowl of your mixer, combine salt, honey, oil, and yeast water.

Add flax-seed and flours and beat on high speed for 3 minutes.

Spoon into greased loaf pan and let rise until almost doubled (about 30 minutes).

Bake for 35-55 minutes, or until loaf is very golden brown.

Turn onto a rack to cool completely. Loaf should sound hollow when you tap the crust.
