Lightly spray the bottom of the Dutch oven with oil. Bake for 15 minutes. Optional: Add 2 tablespoons of flax seed, instead of using 3 cups flour use 1 cup white flour and 2 cups wheat flour, or use 2 ¾ cups wheat flour.

Note: I save some of the batch so we can have some left over for a quick grab-and-run breakfast, (If there are any left) I usually double the batch.
