"The sunflower seeds give this bread a great crunchy texture and the molasses makes it warm and sassy. You can substitute whole wheat flour for some of the bread flour if you like." — LISA GALLOWAY

We enjoyed this bread quite a bit. After reading the other reviews, I added more like 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, and in my machine, this was just right. It tends to chew up add-ins, and I had planned on adding another 1/4 cup or so during the last 5 minutes of kneading, but fouled up my timer and missed the whole thing! By adding the extra at the start, I didn't need the last-minute add. I added 1/2 tsp. salt, and found it to be just a little flat -- a problem that could be solved by sprinkling a little salt on the slice while eating it. Next batch will have a full tsp. salt. Loved this one -- thanks for submitting it!
Update: I don't agree with those who thought this was not good the next day. I'm eating it for breakfast, and it's great!
One of my favorites! Love the texture. For a variation, I sometimes add ground flax seeds.
Really good bread. I added 1 cup of whole wheat flour and a few tablespoons of soy flour.
The crust is really nice. good looking loaf-
next time I would add a little salt for flavor.maybe 1/2 teaspoon
It was interesting. I wasn't sure about the molassas aftertaste at first, but I got used to it. Definitely better as a sandwich bread than served alone.
The only variation that I used was a cup of whole wheat flour as well. Next time, I might add more sunflower seeds since I felt that they got lost.
I love this bread! The molasses and sunflower seeds give it a great taste and texture.
Very nice bread, and very hearty! I like the crunch from the sunflower seeds, and the heartiness from the seeds and the wheat bran. I didn't change the recipe other than baking in the oven at 375 for 35 mins. Thanks for the recipe!
