Looking for a high fiber bread recipe

My neighbor's husband has health issues and fiber will really help to alleviate his symptoms. The highest fiber bread I have found has 6.3g but calls for rye flour, which I don't have. He needs close to 40g a day, so the larger the amount, the better. I have vital wheat gluten, wheat germ, flax, wheat flour, bread flour, white flour, and oat bran all on hand.

Calorie for calorie, veggies have more fiber and nutrition than any bread.  He should be looking for ways to incorporate more veggies instead of filling up on high fiber bread.

I saw that one, but it didn't have the nutritional values, so I wasn't sure. I know he needs fruits and veggies, but he's a stubborn person. I figured bread would be the easiest way for him to get more fiber. Personally, I really do not like how he eats. He is diabetic and has had repeated episodes of diverticulitis. He eats a lot of carbs, sugary foods and soda (I am cringing from just the thought). Aside from making high fiber bread, I don't know of any other ways to help him.

Thank you! He is type 1 and he really does not eat many fruits and veggies, like I said before. Most of his diet consists of carbs, so I figured the least I could do was make the bread as nutrient and fiber dense as possible. I wound up making the one posted above but did not have wheat bran, so I substituted oat bran in it's place.

Stubborn man!  He sounds just like my type 1 mom.

I'm a type 2 diabetic that's had great success with a paleo/primal diet, but bread is sure off the list of food we can eat.

I'm willing to add it to the bread if it won't alter the flavor too much. I could try something like raisin-carrot bread with added fiber. Any other ideas?
