Dough not attaching to itself.

I have made this recipe several times and the first time was the best. I copied the recipe to a card and forgot to copy the instructions to it. It was a seven grain bread from the Bob's red mill bag. And I can't find it on the bag or anywhere. So that's why the first time I made it it was the best I assume. But each time gets better. My problem is when I punch it down and form the loaf let it rise again and throw it in the oven then cook it, it comes out as a loaf but is not "connected" where 2 exposed parts of dough touch. I flatten it out roll it up and tuck the ends under. And it seems to keep the form of the flattened part but rolled up. Almost like a cinnamon roll.

Are you letting it rise after flattening it?
How to make bread.
Make dough, let rise, punch down, shape dough, let rise, then bake in a preheated oven.
Is there some reason for the flatten, roll and tuck?
If not I would just shape it into a loaf and let rise.

You might try looking at this this link from Bob's Red Miss site. Your recipe might be included in the ones listed.

Yes. Although this time I thought it should have risen a bit more. But it stopped. I mixed it in my food processor with a dough blade. But broke the blade. I felt that it might not have been kneeded well enough. The plan was to let it rise the first time and if it wasn't successful I was going to scrap it and start over.

I looked at it again just to check but it's not there. I know it existed.

Here is a whole list of 7 grain bread recipes.
What were all the ingredients?
Oh and did you use 105-115 degree water?

And don't flatten like cinnamon rolls, just shape into loaves.

The water was warm not hot.
Those are the ingredients. The best loaf was not done in my bread machine.

When you mixed the dough and set it aside to rise, did you cover it with plastic touching the dough. If it was rising with the surface exposed, there may have been surface drying that prevented adhesion.
