Using cooked grains in bread

I just made 2 loaves of the most delicious bread from a recipe I found.  I had to re do the recipe because it was all jumbled together and hard to work out the ingredients this way, so I put all of my DRY into the mixer bowl first, then mixed my wet in a large bowl and poured that in and it was delicious.  Since it is l00% whole grain, of course, it is not real high.   I let mine rest in the refrigerator because I was very tired and wanted to go to bed, and this morning it was gorgeous.  Took directly from fridge into 350 oven and it came out beautiful and healthy.

If anyone if interested, am posting the recipe and the photo if I can manage to figure out how.  I would imagine any cooked grain would work.

Also a special note - I usde 3/4 cup of HIGH MAIZE flour in mine for added fiber.  I don't know of a substitute but it is a modified starch from corn flour that make it incredibly high fiber - I think 60 grams per cup. You could probably use tapioca, corn starch or potato starch if you don't have it.

Here is the recipe and photo.
