Happy Veterans Day Muesli Bread

First off happy Veterans Day ! I hope you had the opportunity to thank your local veterans 🙂 

I am officially back to operation clean up my diet before the holidays. My favorite type of lunches are grab and go filled with protein. Starbucks has a really great protein pack with a hard boiled egg, cheese, organic peanut butter and muesli  roll. I just really do not want to spend $5 a day. I considered buying a bag of muesli rolls from trader joes, but by the time I buy all the ingredients I am back to that $5 a day price point. 
My goal was to make 10 servings of muesli bread for $5. That will give me a breakfast and lunch portion for 5 work days. 
What you need:
3 1/4 cups Unbleached bread flour 
1 pack yeast 
1/2 tsp salt 
1 1/2 cup warm water
Olive oil
Pinch of Organic sugar (optional)
Your choice of seeds, dried fruits and nuts. 
I used: 
Reduced sugar craisins 
Sunflower seeds
Flax seed

In a large bowl mix water, yeast and salt. Add in flour. Mix with a large spoon until a large ball forms. Dough should be sticky. If it looks too dry add water. Coat dough with olive oil. Cover with towel and let rise for 1 hour. Knead dough on floured surface and allow to rise another 30 minutes. 
Chop nuts and fruit mix together with seeds. 
Lightly flatten dough and pour seeds,nuts and fruits in the middle. Fold dough until mixture is hidden under the dough. Form into a ball and slice across the top twice. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!
