Combine and soak 1 hour:

  • Combine and soak 1 hour:
  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup #3 coarse Bulgur Wheat

Mix dry ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup ground oatmeal (grind oatmeal in food processor then measure)
  • 2 tbsp. wheat bran
  • 2 tbsp. flaxseed meal
  • 2 tbsp. vital wheat gluten
  • 1 tbsp. dough enhancer
  • 1 tsp. salt

Combine wet ingredients and sweeteners:

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. agave nectar or honey
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 cup warm water slightly warmer than room temperature
  • 2 2/3 tsp. yeast


  • Follow directions for your bread machine for the order to add ingredients.
  • Put the liquid in first, followed by the dry ingredients. Make a small well in the flour and put the yeast in that. Use the whole wheat setting on the machine.
  • Watch bread while it goes through the first mixing cycle, and if it doesn't form a ball you may need to add more flour or water, a little bit at a time. The dough should make a firm ball and be only slightly sticky.
  • Bread machine takes 3 hours 40 minutes for the whole wheat cycle. Bread is delicious hot or cold; also makes great toast.
