Whole Grain Chia Bread for the bread machine, plant based no added fat

Whole grain bread made with oatmeal, chia seed and flaxseed meal.  

No dairy or added fat!


1 3/4 to 2 cups warm water
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chia seed
2 tablespoon flaxseed meal
1 cup rolled oats
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill Hot whole grain cereal (dry mix)
1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (for bread machines)

Combine all ingredients into bread machine pan and turn it on white bread setting.  Add enough additional water as machine kneads the dough to ensure that all flour is incorporated, start with 1 3/4 cups that is warm to the touch but not hot.

To make this without a machine, put everything into a large bowl and using a large rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir until all ingredients are combined and then knead until dough is smooth and elastic.  Let rise in warm place until double in size, about two hours.  Shape into loaf, let rise again for one hour and then bake in oven at 375 degrees fahrenheit for about 40 minutes or until edge of loaf pulls away from side of pan and it sounds hollow when you thump on it.
