Millet Oatmeal Bread Recipe

Step 1

Wash millet, put in a saucepan with 1 c of water & pinch of salt, cover & cook over medium heat until the water is absorbed & millet is soft. Add a little more water if millet needs more cooking.

Step 2

Dissolve yeast & sucanat in about 1 1/4 c warm water. Let stand till foamy.

Step 3

In a large bowl, mix together the flours, oats, salt & sunflower seeds. Add oil, warm millet, yeast & remaining warm water. Mix into a stiff dough. If too stiff, add more water, or add more water if too sticky. The dough should be light & spongy. Knead vigorously for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Lightly oil loaf pans, roll our dough & place in pans. Lightly brush the tops of the loaves with oil & let rise in warm place for 30 minutes. Bake at 375F for about 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Lightly oil the crust to tenderize.
