Servings : 2 loaves


  • 1 1/3 cups water tepid
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 Tbsp honey
  • 4 cups 100% whole grain flour we used wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds toasted
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp flax meal
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp yeast such as bread machine yeast
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Add warm water, oil, and honey to the bowl of a stand mixer. Add flour, gluten, quinoa, oats, sunflower seeds, pepitas, walnuts, sesame seeds, chia seeds, and flax meal. Add salt to the side of the bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add yeast to the well.
  • Fit mixer with dough hook. Mix on speed 1 for 5-10 minutes, stopping the machine to scrape the sides several times, until a dough ball almost forms and dough cleans the sides of the bowl. If you need to add a little more water, add it a Tbsp at a time until it is the right consistency (see video below).
  • Add remaining oil to the bowl. Turn dough ball over several times to coat in oil. Cover bowl loosely with clean dish towel and place in a warm, draft free place for 1 hour.
  • Fit mixer with dough hook again. Mix on speed 1 for 30 seconds. (this punches down the dough.) Cover bowl with cloth. Let stand in a warm, draft free place for 1 more hour.
  • Fit mixer with dough hook again. Mix on speed 1 for 30 seconds to punch down the dough. Spray two loaf pans with cooking spray. Divide dough into two halves. Shape each half into a loaf shape, and place in a loaf pan. Cover with cloth. Let stand 1 hour for a third rise.
  • 15 minutes before last rise, place oven rack to lower position so that loaves will be in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350.
  • After last rise, bake loaves 30 min at 350. Let cool completely before slicing.

To Freeze

  • Slice. Wrap tightly in foil. Freeze up to 4 weeks.
