A Vegan With A Bread Machine: Flax Wheat Bread

January 13, 2010 by Keri

I’m completely convinced that the most comforting aroma on earth is that of freshly baking bread.  Even if I didn’t eat bread, which I do in large quantities, I would bake the stuff just to fill my home with the mouth-watering, warm scent.  Being vegan, the bread machine has become a completely vital appliance in my household, because not only is standing in the grocery store bread isle reading every single label a pain in my behind, I simply like the idea of controlling exactly what goes into my loaf.  I have tried countless vegan bread machine recipes that I love, but my absolute favorite is this flax wheat bread with its amazing flavor and perfect consistency to slice up for sandwich bread, as well as enjoy as a side dish with soups and pastas.  I especially love to make sandwiches with my panini press using this bread!  I originally found the recipe on VegWeb.com and adapted it to my equipment and taste. Enjoy!


  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached bread flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon vital wheat gluten
  • 1/2 cup milled flax seeds
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Add ingredients in order, unless your machine specifies differently.  Set to whole wheat setting, 1.5 lb. loaf, normal.
