Whole Wheat Olive Thyme Walnut Loaf

Baking bread ... or say a good bread has always been a dream.  I am in love with the fragrance of a bread baking in my oven. I haven't really tried a lot of them yet mainly because of the use of yeast. It takes time to proof the bread and at times i do not have a lot of patience. So i looked up and found out that breads can be made without yeast too :)
This bread takes absolutely no time assemble. Just throw in your ingredients in a big bowl, knead it and put it in the oven ...
You can mix and match your choice of herbs and flavours... u really have a lot of scope to play with your flavours here, so do not hesitate to create your own combination.

Whole Wheat Olive Thyme Loaf.

21/2 cup whole wheat flour
21/2 tsp Baking pwd
3 tbs Ground Flax seeds
1/2 cup water
1 tsp Fresh Thyme leaves
1/4th cup olives chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/4th cup olive oil

Preheat the oven at high for about 15-20 min.
Blend the flax seeds with warm water in a blender to a frothy foam,
In a bowl mix in the dry ingredients along with olives, walnuts and herbs.
Add the flax seed mix and then gradually add milk to make a little sticky dough.
Spread it in a greased loaf pan and bake for about 45 min, or until a skewer comes out clean.
Let it get down to a room temperature and enjoy!!
