Seven Grain Bread (in the Bread Machine)

Looking for a healthy, hearty, easy new bread to make in your bread machine? Then look no further my friend! This seven grain bread has all three of these awesome qualities, and everyone–from small children to adults–loves it!<3

This nutritious recipe was shared by a dear friend of ours, Connie. I doubt she’ll ever read this post, but if you are, THANK YOU!!! πŸ˜‰ I’ve included the printable version of the recipe below:


  • 1 + 2/3 c. water
  • 3 TBSP powdered milk
  • 2 TBSP shortening (can also use butter or coconut oil)
  • 2 TBSP honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1 TBSP black strap molasses
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 TBSP gluten (optional)
  • 2 + 1/2 c. white unbleached flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 3/4 c. seven grain flakes
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp. yeast
Didn’t realize this when I snapped the photo, but you can see our dog peeking in the window…he loves bread too! πŸ™‚

As with any basic bread machine recipe, this will only take a couple minutes to put together. Throw the water, powdered milk, shortening, honey, and molasses in the bottom of your bread machine’s pan. Follow up with the remaining dry ingredients except for the yeast. Next, make a little well in the center of your dry ingredients and carefully pour the yeast in… And finally, set the machine on a basic setting for a 2 pound loaf, and let her rip! πŸ™‚

By dinner time, your mouth will be watering just smelling it cooking… And you will have a very happy tummy once it’s finished! πŸ˜‰

I will mention, this bread always falls in the middle when we make it. 😦 So don’t let it bother you if it happens, I assure you it has no bearings on the flavor!
