Flax Seed Wheat Bread Recipe

Flax Seed Wheat Bread


A great complement to any meal, this no-knead flax seed wheat bread is poked with holes and baked with a cup of water for a steamed texture.


  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup flax seeds
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 ½ cups cool water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour


  1. Combine bread flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, flax seeds, salt, and yeast in a large bowl. Add cool water; mix, without kneading, until dough is wet and sticky. Cover bowl with plastic wrap; let sit at room temperature until dough is bubbly and swelled, about 12 hours.
  2. Grease a loaf pan with oil; dust with 1 1/2 teaspoons whole wheat flour. Place dough in pan; dust the top with remaining whole wheat flour. Poke holes in the dough using a chopstick or make cuts with a knife.
  3. Cover loaf pan with plastic wrap. Let dough rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place an oven-safe cup of water in the oven.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until chestnut-brown on top, about 45 minutes. Lift bread out of the pan using pot holders; let cool thoroughly on a rack.
