  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup, agave, or honey
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt

How to make whole grain bread

Combine warm water, yeast, salt, flaxseed meal, flours, and maple syrup in a large bowl and stir until well combined. Add flour and knead in the bowl with your hands until the dough is no longer sticking to the sides of bowl.

Lightly grease the bowl with oil or nonstick spray. Place the dough in the bowl, cover and let rise at room temperature for at least 2 hours.

Create a hole in the dough with finger and pour oats and sunflower seeds. Knead the dough about 20 turns on a work surface and form a loaf shape.

Put the dough to a greased loaf pan and sift a light coating of flour. Cover and let rest for 45-60 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450F. Put a cast iron pan on the lowest rack and pour 1 cup hot water.

Once the oven is preheated, slash the dough 2 to 3 times with a knife making ½ inch cuts and place it on the middle rack of the oven.

Bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven. Let it rest for few minutes in pan. Remove from pan and let the bread cool completely before slicing.
