Ingredients

           cooking spray or unsalted butter


2½       cups warm (105-110°F) water


1½       tablespoons molasses


3½       teaspoons active dry yeast


5¼       cups whole wheat flour


3         cups bread flour, divided


¾         cup regular oats


2½       tablespoons vital wheat gluten


1          tablespoon salt


3          tablespoons flax seed oil or walnut oil


3          tablespoons flax seeds


3          tablespoons poppy seeds


3          tablespoons hulled pumpkin seeds, toasted


3          tablespoons sesame seeds


3          tablespoons roasted unsalted sunflower seeds


1          cup slivered almonds or other roughly chopped nuts – optional


           cooking spray or unsalted butter for the pans


Instructions

Place warm water, molasses and yeast in the Cuisinart™ mixing bowl. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes until mixture is foamy and bubbly.


While yeast is proofing, combine 4¾ cups of whole wheat flour with 2½ cups bread flour, oats, vital wheat gluten, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the yeast mixture. Insert the dough hook and mix on speed 2 for 2 minutes.


Combine remaining flours and reserve. Add the oil, flax seeds, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and optional nuts. Mix for an additional 2 minutes on speed 3. Continuing on speed 3, add the remaining flour 1 tablespoon at a time until a dough ball forms that clings to the dough hook and cleans the sides of the bowl. Set the timer for 4 minutes to allow the dough to knead. Transfer to a clean bowl, cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until volume is doubled, about 1 to 1½ hours.


Lightly coat two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans with unsalted butter or cooking spray. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces and shape into loaves. Place in prepared pans, cover and let rise until dough comes up over the top of the pan by about ¾ inch.


While dough is rising, preheat oven to 375°F. Bake loaves for 35 to 45 minutes, until lightly browned and hollow sounding when tapped. Remove from pans and let cool on a wire rack.


Bread slices best when allowed to cool completely before slicing.
