|2¼ cup||Oat bran|
|1¾ cup||Whole wheat flour|
|2 tablespoons||Wheat germ|
|1 teaspoon||Salt (optional)|

"Soluble fiber from both carrots and oat bran can really help fight cholesterol. Bot oh, wait till you taste the rich full-bodied, freshly grated carrot flavor. If you love carrot cake, wait till you try this great tasting, good-for-you oat bran bread." Get ready for a 3-4 pound loaf. Place yeast in bottom of Auto Bakery.
Add rest of ingredients except liquid into the pan in the order listed. Add 1 cup plus the 2 Tbsp of very warm water. Select white bread and push "Start." Leave the lid open. After a minute as the machine mixes the dough, add the remaining very warm water slowly.
This recipe is very large and may kick up some flour over the edge or on the glass dome at the beginning. Adding the liquid slowly will help prevent this. The pan will be very full and the bread won't rise very much. But, it will be a tall loaf. If your rises too much, cut down on the liquid. If it seems too dry, increase the liquid.
