I have just started to make my own bread and am looking for texture in the loaf.  I have tried adding 7-grain cereal, sesame seeds and cornmeal, but still am not getting the nutty seedy texture I am looking for.  King Aurthur Flour makes a Harvest Grain blend that sounds good.  I was ordering it on-line but the shipping to the Island I live on, Molokai Hawaii, was almost twice the cost of the product itself.  Does anyone know of a cheaper source or how I might make my own from scratch?  I would be interested in any ideas on adding texture.  Thanks very much.

I would recommend sprouted grains. Wheat, barley, oats etc. Any whole grain can be sprouted at home and they all add nice texture flavor and nutrition.

Thanks for the tip.  I will try these 3 next time I bake a loaf.  I looked up how to sprout them on the internet and it looked as simple as soaking them overnight.
