7 Grain Loaf

Recipe from Marye at


  • 2 packages yeast1/4 cup warm water, (110F)
  • 5 tablespoons honey, divided use (use maple syrup or agave to make it vegan)
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup 7 grain cereal
  • 1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup flaxseed
  • 3 cups bread flour, more as needed
  • 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten 
  • (we actually didn't use vital gluten because, well, farm life and we didn't have it!)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt, yes, that is tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup melted butter, use coconut oil or vegetable oil to make it vegan


  • Add the yeast and 1 tablespoon honey to the warm water
  • Set the mixture aside for about five minutes. It will get bubbly.
  • Add the 2 cups of warm water, remaining honey, 7 grain cereal, oatmeal, 1 cup of the whole wheat flour, 1 cup of flaxseed, 1 cup of bread flour, and 1/4 cup gluten.
  • Stir until well mixed.
  • Cover and set in a warm place to rise - about 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.
  • Stir the dough down and add the salt and butter.
  • Using the dough hook on your mixer beat in the remaining whole wheat flour and enough of the remaining bread flour to make an elastic dough.
  • Knead for 10 minutes.
  • Cover and place in a warm spot to rise.
  • Let rise until double, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Punch down.
  • Let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Form into loaves and place in greased pans.
  • Oil tops and cover, let rise for 1 hour or until doubled.
  • Bake at 375F for 40-45 minutes.
  • Loaves will sound hollow when tapped.
  • Cool completely before slicing! Bread will slice VERY thin when it's completely cool.

  • Do you mean 7-grain hot cereal (uncooked) or 7-grain flake cereal. I’m assuming the former, but don’t like to assume…
