I have been searching for a "Healthy" bread recipe and one that I could incorporate with more flax seed. Well, this is the one!! This is a fantastic bread recipe. I believe this is healthy AND tastes good. This is a nice heavy bread and is so good toasted. I used 1/2 cup flax seed in place of the grapenuts & it turned out perfectly. I am going to make my next batch into rolls. I think they would go over really well in this family. Thanks so much for the great recipe.

I made this bread yesterday afternoon exactly a written in a Sunbeam on whole wheat setting. Nice flavor but very dry and crumbly. Won't make it again.

This bread rocked, and our family didn't think that this bread was too sweet, especially for meats like honey baked ham or turkey. I used 1/2c. flax seed instead of grapenuts because I didn't have any grapenuts in the house. I also cooked it at 375 for about 35 minutes and let it have 2 risings. (I don't have a bread machine.) Delicious!! Try it! you won't be disapointed!

this bread was delicious. i left out the sugar as it was sweet enough with just the honey and used a combination of cracked wheat and flax seeds instead of the grape nuts. thanks for the great recipe.

I am russian and been loking for taste of the bread like I had at my homeland .This bread has very close taste to my childhood's bread.Very good!!!I didn't use honey and brown sugar (I don't like sweet bread.I am excepting sweeteness in the cake,not bread)I added 2 tablespoon white sugar so yeast rise well,but it didn't give sweeteness to bread,just perffect balance of the taste

Rises nicely considering all the wheat flours, slices well and has good texture & flavor.

This was a delicious loaf! I didn't have any grapenuts cereal, so I just used the equivalent measurement of Multigrain Cheerios.....what a success :)
