This recipe has earned the goodfibes™ seal indicating it is a good source of fiber.
1-3/4 to 2 cups all-purpose flour 
1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour 
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast 
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup milk 
1/4 cup water 
3 tablespoons honey 
1 tablespoon butter OR margarine 
1 large egg 
1/4 cup flaxseed
1 tablespoon butter OR margarine, melted


Combine 1 cup flour, whole wheat flour, undissolved yeast, and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat milk, water, honey, and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg, flaxseed, and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Roll dough to 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Beginning on short end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place, seam side down, in greased 8 -1/2 x 4-1/2 -inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1-1/2 hours.

Bake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack. Brush with melted butter.
