  1. Place the ingredients into the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select the whole wheat setting and press start. If your machine has a signal for fruit or nuts, add the sunflower and pumpkin seeds at the beep.


  • Editor's Notes:
  • For a less dense loaf, you can substitute bread flour for half of the whole wheat flour. To make this recipe in a stand mixer, combine all of the ingredients except the vegetable oil in the mixing bowl. Mix on low speed using the dough hook, scraping the dough down occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add the oil and mix for an additional 2 minutes. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel, and allow it to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Flatten the dough into a rectangle, pressing down with your hands to pop any air bubbles. Fold the dough into thirds, rolling it slightly under your palms to form a loaf, and pinch the seam to seal. Place the dough into the loaf pan, seam-side down, cover it with a floured kitchen towel, and allow it to rise again until doubled, about 30 minutes. You may brush the surface with water or milk, if desired, and top it with extra pumpkin or sunflower seeds for a lovely appearance. Bake the bread in a preheated 350 degree oven (175 degrees C) until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

The kids love it, but too sweet for me. Next time I'll add less honey, and a bit less water as it sank. Other than that, great!

For all who want to make this recipe and do not have a bread machine, make it anyway. You don't need special instructions or anything converted to make it by hand. This is a healthy bread, ...

This bread was delicious! I am so happy to find a bread recipe that uses all whole wheat flour AND wheat bran, as well as seeds. I usually eat a store-bought seeded bread, but this tastes way ...

My bread sank. And it tasted like it was lacking salt.

The bread came out very well. I've made it with all wheat flour and also with a mix of whole wheat and white bread flour. Both batches were very good, and the crunch of the seeds makes it extr...

I modified this recipe and it turned out wonderfully. I used all purpose bleached flour (instead of whole wheat flour), spring cream honey (instead of regular honey) and used the Basic Bread Cy...

This bread was not a hit in our house. It turned out quite dry and dense and it didn't seem to have much flavour to it.

Great recipe! I used my stand mixer and not a bread machine. I let it rise for 4 -6 hours once in the loaf pan and it was perfect.
