Sunflower Whole Wheat Quick Bread

This is a quick bread, not a yeast bread, and it's filled with marvelous sunflower seeds. It uses whole wheat flour and wheat germ and is topped off with more sunflowers and kosher salt. 

It's very good warm with some butter, but I thought it was best when allowed to cool completely. It has a wonderful, nutty flavor with a hint of sweetness which makes it perfect for both sweet and savory spreads. I had some smeared with cream cheese, but it would be equally good topped with sliced cheese, or as a breakfast treat with your favorite jam or preserves.

This is a very easy recipe, bakes for about an hour and is perfect for breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner time!

I found this in a book I checked out from the library, gotta love that! A very tasty addition to my recipe files. :) I will be making this again!

Don't be afraid of this one, there's no yeast! Much like making a banana bread :)

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies and cakes. :) I love cooking too, but I like to experiment, which can occasionally mean take out! ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in the convenience food era. My parents were divorced and I was a latch key kid. There weren't a whole lot of home cooked meals in my childhood, but lots of packaged and frozen goods. I try to make dinner every night for my family, though sometimes it's take out due to sports activities, etc. I'm envious of those that have their grandmother's recipes, I don't have anything like that.
My cooking triumphs
i've created a few recipes of my own, one I even won a contest for :) I love experimenting and finding new ways to combine flavors. I feel triumphant every time I bring something to my neighbors, they always give me rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I try to prepare whatever I can early in the day, so that the hectic afternoon is less... well, hectic! I tend to be pretty frugal, so I'm always pantry diving. I also menu plan every week, it saves me from A) running to the store in the middle of the week and B) getting take out.
