Spent Grain Bread

3 c whole wheat flour
3 c spent grains, processed
1 c nut flour (pecans or almonds)
2 tsp salt
2 tsp yeast
1/4 c honey
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c olive oil
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c almond milk

Followed directions from here:

Had to add more flour to get it dry enough to form a ball.  Also allowed a second rise, about 1.5-2 hours.  Scored the tops, but might not do that next time.

This was fantastic!  I can't believe I finally made bread that wasn't dense as granite! DSC07259
