Flaxseeds are a healthy addition to almost any diet. Research shows that this food is a real cancer-fighter. This is a really good bread. Rustic and nutty flavored but not overpowering. My DH enjoyed this bread toasted. I made a second batch and made 6 rolls and a mini loaf (freehand) of bread which I then added butter and garlic to after it was cooked, then toasted for a spaghetti dinner. DH LOVED it this way. This recipe adopted from the Caring4Cancer newsletter. ABM directions- below Time includes resting and rising time. These times will vary depending on method, altitude and temperature in your neck of the woods. NOTE: (3/8/12) Most everyone has had to add in the additional flour. I used an additional 1/2 cup as well. I still follow the directions keeping 1 c aside to add in afterwards because I tried it adding it in in the beginning and it did not seem to come together as well, too dry to start. I also have made this using 2 c whole wheat flour +3 1/2 c AP flour to start and then used less than 1/2 c of additional flour. Please use your own experiance and jusdgement.
