Why is a cereal that contains neither grapes nor nuts called Grape nuts? Because during his stay at John Kellogg's popular Battle Creek Sanitorium (perhaps America's first health spa), Charles Post observed that people would pay for "health foods". He first tried to market his cereal as Elijah's Manna, with predictable results. Then Post renamed his product to exploit the fact that most people thinking "grapes" and "nuts" also think "wholesome,nutritious." It worked, and Mr. Post's motto became, "All I have I owe to advertising."Regardless of the story, I can tell you one thing which I know for a fact. This bread is indeed wholesome and nutritious. It is one of those breads which is chewy and hearty and would make one wonder what is in it and yet feel completely at peace knowing the benefits that would be reaped from it! Whole wheat flour, Wheat Bran, grape Nut cereal with little of all purpose flour constitutes the bread. Flavor and health do go hand in hand and it is almost fat free. I swerved away from my usual tinkering of a recipe - this was simply perfect as it was.
Every oven is different. The temperature was right for my oven hence the mention. :)
Hi Barbara, yes this recipe can be made using Bread Machine - I have updated the post with the details. Thanks :) -- DK
