I took my favorite honey whole wheat bread and changed it into a vegan friendly 1½ lb loaf, perfect for thick sliced sandwiches. Normally I use raw seeds and nuts, in this case toasted flaxseed is amazing. I get mine at Trader Joe’s, it is hidden in the breakfast section.
It is a rhythm….I wake up, put the bread on in the machine, make breakfast (oats usually) and carry on with my day. If I happen to be out with the boys Kirk pulls the bread out 3½ hours or so later and when I get back we have lunch.
