Dietician's Tip: The term "meal" describes a grain or seed that's been ground into a powder.


  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal (flaxseed flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup millet meal (millet flour)
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seed, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons wheat gluten
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk or skim milk
  • 2 egg whites


Heat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, combine milk and egg whites. Mix well. Add milk and egg mixture to dry ingredients. Mix until well-moistened.

Lightly grease the bottom of a 5-by-8-inch loaf pan. Place the dough in the pan. Using a sharp knife, make a slash in the dough lengthwise, about 1/4 inch deep.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. To test for doneness, insert a skewer or knife into the center of the loaf. It should come out clean. Cool thoroughly on a rack before slicing.
