Whole Wheat French Bread



I got this amazing french bread recipe from my Sister-in-law, Michelle. It really is delicious and I thought I'd try doctoring it up for a little more fiber.

Dissolve and stir:
2 pkg. yeast
3 cups warm water
1/4 cup Blue Agave Organic Sweetener

1 tbsp salt
1/4 cup oil
4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
3-4 cups unbleached flour

Knead for 10-15 minutes. Cover and let rise in greased bowl until double (about 1 hour). Punch down and divide in two. Shape in rectangle and roll up tapering ends. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Gash diagonally with a sharp knife. Let rise for about 30 minutes. Mix 2 egg whites and 1 tbsp water until foamy. Brush over loaves. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
