Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread for Bread Machines

0

Reader Rosey submitted this super easy bread machine recipe. It’s a sunflower seed bread that’s also infused with flaxseeds and made with part wheat flour for a more wholesome touch. It’s perfect for breakfast toast or sandwiches.

Unlike many breadmaker recipes, this sunflower seed bread doesn’t call for any milk powder. You can use dairy-free milk beverage in place of the water, but it isn’t necessary. The loaf will still turn out tender and flavorful.

Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread Recipe for Bread Machines (dairy-free and vegan optional)

Sunflower Seed Bread without a Bread Machine

Whisk together the bread flour, salt, and yeast. Add the water, melted buttery spread or oil, sweetener, and flaxseed and stir to combine. Add the wheat flour, 1/3 cup at a time, kneading as it become thick. Knead it for 7 to 10 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm draft free place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down and let rest 5 minutes. Shape and place in a greased and floured large loaf pan or two smaller loaf pans. Sprinkle on the sunflower seeds. Cover and let rise until doubled again, about 1 hour. Bake at 350ºF until golden and the loaf sounds hollow when thumped on the bottom. This is usually around 30 minutes.
