Sunflower & Oat Sandwich Bread


2.5 cups flour (all-purpose or whole wheat)
1 cup water
1 packet dry yeast
1 TBSP honey
2 TBSP olive oil
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup oats
pinch salt


1. Mix together water and honey, heat in microwave for 30 seconds.
2. Add yeast to honey water and stir well. Set aside for 5-7 minutes until yeast forms a thick layer of foam.
3. Pour that mixture into a mixing bowl. Add olive oil, salt, and 1/2 cup flour. Mix with a rubber or wooden spoon until combined.
4. Continue adding flour 1/2 cup at a time, add oats and sunflower seeds half way through.
5. When a soft but slightly sticky dough forms, turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 15 minutes. Dough should be smooth but not dry.
6. Cover with a clean towel or oiled plastic film. You can also return the dough ball to the bowl and cover. Let rise for 1 hour.
7. Punch dough down, turn out, and knead for 2 minutes.
8. Form the dough into a log and place in your oiled loaf pan (or form it into a ball and put in a dutch oven/pizza stone lined with parchment paper) and cover again.
9. Let rise for 45-60 more minutes.
10. Heat oven to 400F
11. Bake for 30-35 minutes until crust is hard and medium brown, and the bottom of the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
12. Turn out onto a rack and allow to cool completely before slicing.
