Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Very good bread! The oat bran and the flax meal were hard for me to locate but they made the bread a lot healthier and this bread uses my favorite spices, so I know it would be a winning recipe and it was! I was able to make two mini loafs and a small loaf (4 x 6) - next time we'll try the muffins! Thanks for sharing!
