Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?

This is an exceptionally moist, multigrain bread made with milk and honey, rolled oats, and other whole grains with a scattering of sunflower seeds. It's a "kitchen sink" bread where everything turned out just right.

We used plenty of rolled oats. The oats get soft in baking and retain lots of moisture, resulting in the moist, soft texture of bread that is still whole grain.

Often, whole-grain breads are a bit harsh. Not this one. We toned it down with the oats and added just enough bread flour from Montana. We also added plenty of dairy.

Good milk nearly always makes bread better. It mellows the bread, and the lactose in the milk sweetens it.

Northern Minnesota is tough country, especially in the winter. You need a hearty bread. This is hearty without being heavy. It's a favorite bread.

"Fit for a lumberjack! A staple with every order. This bread is super soft and has great flavor. Perfect for sandwiches or kept simple with a little butter cinnamon and sugar"--Breann Nielsen 

"Our favorite wheat bread. We love the crunch of the oats and the softness of the bread. The taste is so good, we love to use it for sandwiches."--Sylvia Jacobus 

"Wonderful whole grain! This is delicious, soft and tender, but still sturdy. Makes excellent toast with just a touch of cinnamon honey to bring out all its best qualities. This will become a regular in our kitchen."--Sheryl Murphy 

"A very good bread. We have purchased this bread in the past. Reminded me of breakfast and lunches in the camps in Ketchikan."--John Siestreem
