What a great bread recipe! Like the submitter, I have a family member who is fighting cancer, and this bread fits perfectly into his diet. I made it pretty much as written, except I used home-canned pumpkin instead of applesauce, and cut the amount of honey and molasses in half. The only complaints I have about this recipe is that it could use a bit more salt, and that the dough was very sticky. I had to add at least half a cup of extra flour...but that might be because I used the pumpkin instead of applesauce. Other than that, this bread is absolutely delicious...even family members who turn their noses up at whole-grain breads were eating this and enjoying it! The texture is nice and soft, with all that wonderful graininess from the cracked wheat and sunflower seeds. The oatmeal gave it a lovely texture as well. I found that I needed WAY more than two loaf pans, because this made A LOT of dough. I used 1 9x5" loaf pan, one smaller loaf pan, and one long sandwich bread loaf pan, in addition to two 9" round pans that I used to make into pull-apart rolls. Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe! I'll be making it again!
