Ingredients
  • 1¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2¼ tsp quick rise yeast
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 egg
Topping
  • 2 tbsp old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Heat almond milk in a small saucepan over low heat until milk is lukewarm. Remove from the heat & add to a large bowl (or the bowl of your stand mixer). Stir in oats, yeast & honey. Let sit for five minutes.
  2. Stir in the melted butter & mix. Then add the all purpose flour, almond flour, whole wheat flour & salt. Mix well with a wooden spoon until the dough starts to form.
  3. Add the seeds into the dough. Attach dough hook to the mixer & knead dough for at least 10 minutes. If you don’t have a mixer, knead dough with hands on a clean surfaced lightly floured. Dough should be sticky.
  4. Once done kneading, form the dough into circle. Transfer the dough into a large bowl that has been coated with olive oil. Cover with plastic & a dish towel. Let rise for 90 minutes or until dough has doubled in size.
  5. Grease an 8 inch loaf pan. After the dough has risen, knead it again for about a minute on a clean floured surfaced. Roll dough in loaf size & place in the pan.
  6. Cover the loaf pan in plastic wrap & a dish towel and let the dough rise again for about 60-90 minutes (keep an eye on this, you want the dough to rise an inch above the loaf pan).
  7. Once the dough has risen, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove plastic wrap from the loaf. Beat egg & mix with a bit of water to create an egg wash. Cover top of loaf with egg wash lightly (you do not use the entire egg).
  8. Sprinkle rolled oats, sunflower seeds & sesame seeds as a topping on the loaf.
  9. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Keep loaf in pan for 10 minutes after taking it out of the oven. After that, remove loaf from pan & let it cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours. Do not skip this step. You want the bread to be completely cool before cutting into it.
