(Experiment 249)Multi seeds bread

Looking for an easy tasty & healthy bread to start the day? Look no further! This multi-seeds bread is as good on its own as it is grilled with some butter.

If you switch to a vegetarian diet you quickly need to learn where to replace some minerals you were getting from meat sources. Those 2 seeds are packed with iron, proteins and a bunch of other good stuff. On top of that they taste pretty good too ­čśë

You need

  • 55g raw pumpkin seeds + a little extra for topping
  • 50g raw sunflower seeds + a little extra for topping
  • 2tbsp sesame seeds
  • 8g active dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 250g all-purpose flour
  • 170g whole wheat flour
  • 2tbsp oil
  • 2tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • pinch salt
  • 1 egg

*Note if you want your bread with extra seeds, just toss some extra in.


  1. In a stand mixer bowl, combine water and yeast and let it bloom for 10 minutes.
  2. While you wait, in a mixing bowl, combine the flours and salt
  3. Once the yeast is bloomed, add about half the dry mix along with the honey and oil. Knead for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the pumpkin and sunflower seeds in along with about half of the remaining flour, and knead for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. At this point, touch the dough, if it’s still sticky, add more flour and knead for 2-3 more minutes. You are looking for a slightly tacky texture. I usually have to add all the flour
  6. Ball up the dough and put it back into the stand mixer bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for about 90 minutes ( you want it to double in size)
  7. Remove plastic wrap and punch the dough down
  8. Shape the dough into somewhat of a loaf
  9. Lightly oil up a bread pan and put the dough in. Cover with a clean dishcloth or the plastic wrap from the step before and let it have a final rest for about 30 minutes.
  10. Beat the egg with a little bit of water and brush the dough with it. Sprinkle the extra seeds
  11. Bake at 375F for 30min
  12. Remove from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes
