I make this every week because this is the only bread my sweetie will eat. I guess you could put this in a breadmaker but since it's so simple,I just use my mixer and bake it in the oven. I found this in one of my southbeach diet cookbooks and just tweeked it a bit - who says diet food isn't tasty.

45 Min


1 1/2 c
water (at room temperature)
2 1/2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2 Tbsp
sugar substitute
3 1/2 c
whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp
gluten flour
1/2 c
walnuts chopped
1 1/2 tsp
kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp
quick rise yeast


1In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, combine the water, oil, sugar substiture, whole wheat flour, gluten flour, walnuts, salt & yeast to form a rough dough. Let the dough stand for 15 minutes.
2Place the dough on a lightly floured board and knead or about 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Turn mixer back on and "kneed" for 10 minutes. Personally I like this method better.
3Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and place in a warm spot to rise. Should be double in size in roughly 1 hour.
4Remove from the bowl and punch down the dough. Shape into a loaf and put into oiled bread pan. You can either cover with a damp cloth or spray with "PAM" (occasionally the bread will stick to the cloth during this rise so I tend to just spray so it doesn't get hard). Put in a warm spot to rise. This rise can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on where you place the loaf to rise.
5Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
