I've been thinking about getting out my bread machine and making some homemade cinnamon bread, to have for breakfasts in place of pop tarts. I've heard good things about tossing in a handful of oats or flax seed, but what else could I mix in that would add nutritional value and not ruin the structural integrity of the bread?

Hard mode: Mix-ins that aren't whole or crushed nuts, or contain fruit or veggie peels, as I can't handle them well with my ileostomy.

I got this sprouted grain breads for a ridiculous price at Meijers that I really like and by sprouting the grains before they go into the bread, it's supposed to be more better for you. Maybe you could try sprouting flax or sprouting quinoa to put in your bread. :)

Hi Dave. How about using spelt flour instead of all purpose flour. It's an ancient grain and contains hi levels of fiber and protein. You can find it at Harvest Health.
