Need More Whole Grains? Try Rye Bread


In my seemingly never ending effort to incorporate more whole grains into my family's diet, I bought a large bag of rye flour, which I've been turning into multiple treats. Although plain rye bread is great, I opted for something a bit different--a deep, dark rye bread with chocolate, dried cranberries, and walnuts. The bread is only a little sweet, and it's chocolatey without being overwhelming. The dried cranberries and walnuts add a little extra tang and crunch. The recipe makes two loaves--one to eat and one to share. Try the bread, toasted, for breakfast. It's also great for a snack, perhaps smeared with a little low-fat cream cheese.
