Combine organic flax seed, organic honey and spring water in a spiral mixer and blend for 1 minute on your mixer’s first speed. Let dough rest covered for 1 hour. Then, add dry ingredients and remaining spring water and blend for 4 minutes on your mixer in first speed and then for 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until fully developed. Maintain the dough temperature at 82°F (28°C) and let rise for 30 minutes in a covered container.


Next, divide dough into 12 oz (340 g) portions and shape as desired. Place into a proofer set to 85°F (29°C) with 95% humidity for 60 minutes. Next, remove from proofer and score as desired.


In a deck, rack or revolving oven, set to 440°F (226°C), bake bread with steam for 25 minutes (pending on weight), or until golden brown.
