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.
