Easy Whole Wheat Grain Bread

Easy Whole Wheat Grain Bread is delicious, healthy, and incredibly simple to make! It reminds you of why homemade bread is so superior to store bought loaves. Whole wheat flour, flax seeds, and oats are the foundation of this incredible bread.  If I had sunflower seeds I would’ve thrown them in too, but hey, create with what you have and waste not! Are you sick of hearing me say that yet? 😉 

When I was in Ireland I ate homemade ‘brown bread’ at my relative’s house daily. This bread recipe reminds of the brown bread I had when I was there. Prior to arriving my mom said 2 things to me: 1- You must accept tea when offered to you. 2- You must eat the brown bread when offered to you. So, I did! Boat loads and boat loads of it with my friend, Cheryl.  Perhaps my mom could’ve offered me alternate advice about traveling through Europe with my 18 year old friend a week after we graduated high school, but perhaps she knew I wouldn’t have taken it. It was surreal to be away, so far away, and so free, for the first time in our lives. We had no idea what the hell we were doing, were supposed to be seeing, what we shouldn’t be doing… 😉 So, we did everything, and it was awesome. 

This Easy Whole Wheat Grain Bread is crazy easy, delicious, and healthy. It wins across the board! Great with butter, hummus, or any spread, and excellent for sandwiches, too. Get down with the bread and #carbthe’bleep’up!  (My favorite hashtag on Instagram) 😉
