Norwegians love their bread in the morning and as their last meal of the day. We eat it almost every day for lunch as well. Therefore, I can promise you that we love bread. This bread is one of my recipes. It has lots of whole-wheat flour, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, oats, and carrots. It is a healthier type of bread.

480g grams of whole-wheat flour
360 grams of all-purpose flour

100 grams of yeast
40-50 grams of flaxseeds

Pre-measure all the ingredients!
Heat milk to body temperature 37-42oC. (if you use water just make sure its hot spring water and not boiling)
Blend in the yeast with the milk.
Add all dry ingredients including carrots in the mixer or a mixing bowl.
Add milk and yeast mixture
Start the mixer on very low speed for about 2 minutes
Turn the mixer to high speed and let it run for about 12 minutes.
Take the dough out onto the kitchen counter and let it rest for 5 minutes.
Split the dough in two equal parts. Should be weighted to about 800g each.
Roll them to a size that fits the bread form, or you can place them on an open sheet.
Set oven to suggested temperature
Let the bread rise in the bread forms to desired bread size. (30-45 minutes should be enough)
Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.

I suggest you let the bread rest for at least 20 minutes before you cut into it. Use a sharp breadknife for clean cut slices.
