Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoon turbinado sugar
  • 2 (1 ounce) packets rapid-rise yeast
  • 3 cups whole-wheat flour, preferably organic
  • 3 cups spelt flour, preferably organic
  • 1 cup oat bran
  • 1 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for bowl
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a small bowl, whisk together water, sugar, and yeast; let stand 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Add yeast mixture to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, along with both flours, oat bran, flaxseed, walnuts, sea salt, olive oil, and rosemary; mix until a dough forms, about 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Coat a large bowl with oil. Add dough to bowl and turn to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap; let stand in a warm place until dough has doubled in size, 2 to 3 hours.

  4. Step 4

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle with cornmeal. Punch down dough and shape into a round loaf. Place dough on prepared baking sheet. Cover with a clean towel; let stand in a warm place for 30 minutes.

  5. Step 5

    Preheat oven to 500 degrees with a rack set in the center of the oven. Transfer baking sheet to oven and bake until browned, about 25 minutes. Let bread cool on a wire rack before serving.
