I know I said I was on vacation, but this is a recipe that just can’t wait: a multigrain loaf of bread that is as delicious as it is good for you!
When I baked this loaf of multigrain bread, my life was changed forever. I’ve been curious about baking with whole grains for a long time, but it intimidated me. Too many strange ingredients and, in my opinion, not enough of a payoff. So I stayed in my comfort zone. I’m glad I finally took the plunge with this loaf, it was definitely worth the few extra steps. Taking that first bite of warm, flavorful, and hearty bread was an epiphany, truly. This is the bread that I want to be baking and enjoying regularly, guilty-free.
I’ve been cutting back on bread (and everything) lately in an effort to be healthier, but I didn’t feel guilty at all devouring a few slices of this multigrain loaf. It’s packed with good stuff like whole wheat flour, rye flour, bulgur wheat, flaxseed, oats, and sunflower seeds. With a little help from small amounts of honey and real butter, it all bakes up into one beautiful and tasty loaf. I think this loaf is going to have a permanent place in our house and in my diet. Even my husband and toddler enjoyed it. Finally, something my taste buds, waistline, and whole family can agree on!
