Brown Bread

As I have said before, I love the Gluten Free Pantry's Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix, and use it to make lots of things. The one thing I don't like about gluten free foods is you often either get something with little nutritional value (mostly starch, refined flours) or something healthy that tastes like dirt. When I make a loaf of bread with this mix I often throw in a few things to make it a tiny bit healthier, more fiber etc.

To make this "brown" bread I prepare a loaf according to the directions on the box and add:

2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds
1 tablespoon of molasses
and sometimes I also add 1 tablespoon of millet

Throw it all in the bread machine and you are good to go!

It makes a nice soft sandwich bread with just a little more substance to it, and the picky kids will still eat it!

  1. I finally got around to trying this, and I love it! I used flax seed meal with the molasses and millet flour, and baked it in the oven for 35 min. It really turned out great. I was surprised that it was such a subtle difference in the taste and texture. You're right, even my picky eaters didn't think twice about eating it. Thanks.
