  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the water, 2 cups all-purpose or bread flour, yeast and sugar. Beat on low speed for 3 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. (Mixture will be spongy.) Stir in whole wheat flour, oats, milk powder, butter, honey and salt; mix well. Stir in sunflower seeds and as much of the remaining all-purpose or bread flour as you can with a spoon. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Shape into a ball. Place in a grease bowl; turn once. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30-45 minutes. Punch down and divide in half. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Shape into two loaves; place in two greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes. Cover with foil; bake 15 minutes longer. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.

My husband and I purchased a bread machine over a year a go and this was the first recipe we tried with it. Since that first time, we haven't bought a loaf of bread from a store since! We have f...

Great with strawberry jam or butter. Best when eaten fresh out of the oven. High crumb.

This is a really yummy bread. Unfortunately, it has such a distinct flavor of its own that it's not a good dipping bread (for soups or anything). I also didn't like the sunflower seed taste as...

Although my loaves were not picture-perfect (I let them rise too much, then they fell in the middle), the flavor of the bread is so good and hearty and earthy! I started with some leftover batte...

best bread to make pb&j on ever! i want to make this bread once a week now. so good! i did 1/2C sunflower seeds, 1/4C pumpkin seeds and 1/4C flax seeds. excellent!

YUM! I am eating the first piece now, right out of the oven! Only thing I did was used 2c. skim milk in place of the water, to sub for the dry milk powder because I didn't have any. SO GOOD!
