I have said many times on this blog that I swear by Pamela’s gluten-free bread. I can order it on Amazon, through the subscribe & save program; I can mindlessly put all the ingredients together in my Zojirushi bread maker & walk away. It doesn’t get much easier than that. A couple months back I emailed Pamela’s to see if I could add a TBSP or 2 of flaxseed meal to the mix to boost the nutrition & fiber a bit. I received this message back:
“Good morning Kim!
Well, first let me thank you for your interest in our products! I’m delighted to hear that you enjoy our delicious Gluten-free Bread Mix! You can certainly add 1-2 TBSP of flax seed meal. I would watch for the “stickiness” of the mix; if the mix is too sticky, it will not rise and bake properly so you may want to add an additional 2-3 TBSP of water to counteract the “dry” flax seed meal.
Again, thank you Kim, and I hope you have a great day!

Well, I had forgotten about it (imagine that…me, forget something?) until I went to make bread this morning and I pulled out the email & made it with the flaxseed meal. Here is what I did, it was really hard. I added:
2 TBSP Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal
3 TBSP water (in addition to the water the recipe already calls for)
I was kidding when I said it was hard. That was it! The bread doesn’t look any different really, except for a few more specks of brown throughout (which Jon asked about and I blew it off! hehe!). Still tastes amazing and has a little extra added nutrition. I’ll take that where I can get it!
