King Arthur's Healthy Bread Kids Will Like

This is today's bread recipe . I have made this before. I did make a few changes - no sugar, used Splenda instead. Substituted 1 strawberry yogurt and 2 oz buttermilk for the yogurt and I never bother with the egg wash. Also substituted 1 cup oats for one of the cups of whole wheat flour.

Made the healthy muffins (the link for the muffins is here) yesterday, but didn't make them vegan this time - used an egg instead of soy flour and added dry milk powder.

Serena...sounds good but I'll wait for you to make it in GA when you come visit. I only do recipes that have 4 ingredients or less---and I've never been successful with yeast except to use it in the toilet for a septic tank!

What happens to yeast in a toilet? What did I miss out on?????

We would use the yeast (yes, the same kind as for bread) to help our septic tank "cook"....some older, "experienced" neighbors told us it worked as well as the stuff sold to add to your septic tank monthly and much cheaper. When you live in a subdivision with septic instead of city services, they usually are not installed properly and thus, need any/all assistance necessary, which includes pumping every now and then....thus, my comment re: yeast flushed down the toilet

I just learned something, wonder if it would help out our plumbing, though we don't really have any plumbing issues. BUT at Senior Village one day a toilet that had been giving me fits, allof a sudden there was a tree growing from inside it! Wow, was I ever excited.......it was a money-maker for the plumber.......
