I bought a bag of mixed oatbran and flaxseed meal.

I love hearty tasting chewy whole grain breads, either wheat or rye are great.

What shall I do with the oatbran/flax? I'm sure I can incorporate it into lots of recipes I already have (I subbed some oats into a hamelman durum recipe last week and it was gorgeous), but I would love to hear anyone's ideas?!
