Quick and Easy Bread with Grains

Servings 2 large loaves
Author Natalie



  • 450 grams all-purpose flour
  • 300 grams spelt flour
  • 15 grams dry active yeast
  • 500 ml. water
  • 1 tbsp. date-honey or honey
  • 25 grams fine salt
  • 50-100 grams sunflower seeds
  • 50-100 grams flax seeds
  • Some flour for dusting


  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer with a dough hook put all-purpose flour, spelt flour, yeast, water, salt and date-honey and knead for about 12-15 minutes, until the dough is smooth.
  2. Add in sunflower seeds and flax seeds and knead another 2-3 minutes until the seeds are evenly dispersed in the dough.
  3. Transfer the dough to a work surface, create a round shape and place in a bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled its volume.
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and divide it into 2 equal parts.
  5. Form each part of the dough to a loaf and place on an oven pan lined with slightly floured baking paper.
  6. Preheat oven to 230-250c degrees. If you have a baking rock, place it on the bottom of the oven.
  7. Let rise at room temperature until loaves almost doubled their volume.
  8. Sprinkle a little flour over each loaf and make large incisions on the top using a very sharp knife.
  9. Baking: bake for about 12 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 190c degrees and bake for another 20 minutes.
  10. Carefully (it's boiling!) transfer the loaves over a cooling rack and cool completely at room temperature.

Recipe Notes

  • The bread is best when it's fresh, but you can freeze it (preferably sliced) in a sealed bag for up to 2 weeks.
  • You can add or exclude the seeds and/or other additions you like.
