  • 1 cup water warm
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup white flour
  • 2 tablespoons oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds


  • In a large bowl, combine water, yeast and 1 cup whole wheat flour. Let rest for a few minutes, until bubbles start to form. Add remaining 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, salt and oil.
  • Add 1 cup white flour. Mix with a spatula. Pour dough onto floured surface and sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup white flour, oatmeal and sunflower seeds over dough. Knead for 5 minutes, until all the flour, oatmeal & seeds are incorporated and the dough is elastic.
  • Rinse large bowl and spray with cooking spray. Place dough in the bowl and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap. Set bowl in a warm place and let dough rise until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray. Punch dough to deflate and shape into a 8-9" log. and place dough into pan. Cover with damp towel or plastic wrap and let rise another 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375'F.
  • Uncover the bread and bake about 30 minutes, until golden brown. To make sure bread is cooked, remove from loaf pan, and gently tap on bottom - the loaf should sound hollow.
  • Slice and enjoy!
