“As a dietitian, I’m always hunting for healthful, homemade additions to my family’s meals, and this is a yummy one.” —Barb Troy, New Berlin, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 35 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    3 loaves (16 slices each)


  • 6-1/2 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup bran flakes
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups 1% cottage cheese
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, bran flakes, oats, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat water, cottage cheese, raisins, molasses and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until blended. Beat in eggs. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Shape into loaves. Place in three 9x5-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°, Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
