Hearty Whole Wheat and Nut Bread

Make your homemade bread even more awesome by mixing in a few bonus ingredients.

Yield: 2 loaves


Ingredients


  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 4 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 2 tbsp wheat gluten
  • 2 tbsp milled flax seed
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp molasses
  • 2 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3 cups white flour

Directions


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients up to the walnuts.  Mix well.
  2. Add the peanut butter and molasses and mix together.  Add the water and mix until it's a consistent slurry.
  3. Knead in enough remaining white flour to form a bread dough.  Knead for about 5-7 minutes longer.
  4. Move the dough to a greased mixing bowl.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 60-90 minutes.
  5. Punch the dough down.  Turn it on a flour surface and divide in half.  With each half, roll it into a large rectangle and roll it up the long way.  Place in a greased bread pan and let rise until doubled, about 45-60 minutes.
  6. Bake at 375°F for 50-60 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.
