Homemade Bread

Ingredients

2 cups very warm water

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

4 cups whole wheat flour

3 tbsp vital wheat gluten

2 tbsp ground flax seed

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tbsp dry active yeast

Instructions

Add all ingredients to a bread maker and use the knead only setting. 

If you don't have a bread maker, you can form the dough using a mixer, or by hand. Knead the dough until it is soft and smooth. Cover the dough and allow it to rise in a warm place for about an hour. 

Once the dough has raised, remove it from your bread maker or mixing bowl and form it into a loaf. Place the loaf into a loaf pan lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Cover the loaf pan and let it raise for about 15 minutes while preheating the oven. 

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
