100 Percent Whole Wheat Bread
I've been making 100% whole wheat for a while and have been searching for a good recipe, and I found it here. The missing ingredient for me was the wheat gluten. It makes it nice and fluffy. Other reviewers say they have left this out, I think you're missing it if you do.
Yes, it needs more water! Probably could safely start w/ 2c. Also, feel free to not skimp on the flax seeds and such. From experience, I knew 1 tablespoon wasn't near enough for this size (2 loaves). I went w/ 2 heaping tablespoons of the oats, flax, sesame, and quinoa.. and it's not enough in my opinion. If you like those things in your bread, then I'd say 2 tablespoons is a starting point. I'm starting with 3T of each of those next time.
I use my bread machine to mix dough. Depending on your bread machine size, you may have probs doing this size of a batch. It was overflowing on me a little.. just had to keep an eye on it.
The 2T of coconut oil can be substituted with any kind of shortening. I use olive oil. Did I mention to not skip out on the wheat gluten? (I recommend a non-GMO brand and non-GMO whole wheat).
This is a keeper.. I bake bread every few weeks.. This turned out great.
