Why I Am Posting These Recipes

I believe that it is healthier for an individual and for the planet to reduce the consumption of animal products in the human diet. However, I love to eat all kinds of delicious food, and find it really, really difficult to go totally vegetarian. Also, my family protests if I serve too many vegetarian meals in a row. So I am committed to making an effort to move towards a vegetarian diet without wholly doing so. I will post recipes several times a week that represent my philosophy of eating well, eating healthy, eating local. Most recipes will be easy to prepare, as I have a busy life. So I expect my followers to be people who love to cook and eat well, want to try to help the planet through their eating (by eating local foods and trying to reduce the use of meat in our diets), and have many other things to do each day besides cook.

Wholesome Breadmaker Bread

I started this recipe with a recipe for oatmeal bread that is in my Cuisinart breadmaker recipe book.  I made a few changes, which make it a little more wholesome than the original and just as good!

Makes a 2 lb. loaf

1 ½ cups buttermilk
2 TBS unsalted butter
1 ½ tsp sea salt
3 TBS maple syrup
3 TBS ground flax seed
3 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
2 tsp vital wheat gluten
2 tsp yeast

Put ingredients in breadmaker in order recommended by your machine’s manufacturer, bake on regular cycle, medium crust.
