I think that this bread recipe is what you would call light, almost fluffy. 
Keeps well for over a week. It's a little finicky but the result is well 
worth the try. Since the paddle in my bread machine is stuck I prepare the 
dough in the machine and then hand finish it. I like this as then I can 
make 2 smaller loaves

1 1/3 cups water
3 Tbs. Oil
2 tsp salt
2 Tbs. honey (1/8 cup)
2 Tbs. date syrup (or molasses)
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup oats (quick or coarse)
1/2 cup walnuts/millet
3 Tbs. flax seeds
1 tablet vitamin C, crushed
1 Tbs ginger powder
1 Tbs. yeast

To make to bread machine combine in order given. After a few minutes check 
consistency. Finger should go in smoothly. If dough isn't coming together 
or too dry add water, I Tbs. at a time. Punch down and let rest 20 minutes. 
Punch down and form into a loaf. Let rise 40 minutes. Slash top. Bake 375 F 
for 40 minutes.

To make in Mixmaster, place dry ingredients in bowl. Mix water, oil, honey 
and syrup. Add to dry ingredients and then add flax and walnuts. Mix on low 
for 7 minutes. This will not react like regular dough. It should have just 
enough liquid to come away from the sides even if it doesn't cluster well 
around the dough hook.

Let rise for 45 minutes. Punch down and continue as above
