Whole Wheat Bread for Bread Machine

Bob's Red Mill Recipe

I've been searching for a healthy whole wheat bread recipe for sometime.  I found this recipe on the back of Bob's Red Mill 100% Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour and decided to give it a try.  The recipe calls for "Gluten" which I found at a local health food store. My first attempt at baking whole wheat bread earlier this week was a disaster.  I won't mention the movie star's name who's book I got the recipe from, but I will never use it again.  It was like a big hard rock and I had to be chip it out of the bread machine.  It was very sad......

My Rock Bread

The recipe below was my second attempt, I was a little skeptical because of the "rock bread" failure, but I must admit that it turned out pretty good.
Whole Wheat Bread - One Large Loaf (1 1/2 lb.)

1 1/2 + 2 Tbsp Water
3 3/4 cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tbsp Dry Milk Powder
1 1/2 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Canola Oil
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp Gluten
1 Tbsp Molasses
3 tsp Active Dry Yeast

Add all ingredients in the order suggested by your bread machine manual and process on the basic bread cycle according to the manufacturer's directions. 

The Hubs enjoyed fresh whole wheat bread with peanut butter and jelly.

If you slice the loaf into 12 slices...each slice would be
 worth 4 Weight Watcher Points Plus.

If anyone has a whole wheat bread recipe they would like to share...I would love it.
