Three Seed Bread

I always make our bread from scratch via the bread maker at home.  I am also happy to try out any healthy bread recipe for my family.  Recently, I am into flaxseed and chia seed, so I bought a packet of Bob's Red Mill flaxseed and at the back packet of the flaxseed, it included two recipes and one of it is this Three Seed Bread.  I decided to try this recipe because I have all the ingredients and it sounded great.  This bread indeed turned out delicious and soft and we loved it.  Hence, I decided to share it here with all of you. 

For bread machine, recipe courtesy of Bob's Red Mill.


1 1/4 cups water
2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. oil  (I used peanut oil)
2 cups unbleached white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt  (I used the combination of sea + rock salts and cut it down to 1 tsp.)
1/3 cup Bob's Red Mill flaxseed (I grounded the flaxseed)
2 Tbsp. sunflower seed kernels (I used raw sunflower seeds)
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds  (sometimes I used chia seeds or black sesame seeds)
2 tsp. active dry yeast (I used instant yeast)

Beautifully baked!


Add ingredients to bread machine in the order recommended by the breach machines manufacturer and select basic bread cycle (I used 1.5lb, light crust color).  Let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

~Makes one loaf.

I've been seeing a lot of recipes with chia seed though not quite sure how to use it! Your home made bread looks so much healthier than store-bought!

Chia seed is very popular these days. You can add it in your smoothie, oatmeal, salad, pancake, bread, muffin, cake, waffle, pudding to list a few.

Oh I have such a weakness for seeded bread. I've never tried poppy in a savoury loaf, but I don't know why not!

Thanks for sharing this recipe. It is so easy and the bread came out soft and delicious. I tried is last weekend, Min Jie likes it. I made some minor tweaks: pink salt to replace salt, olive oil to peanut oil and pecan to sunflower seeds. Will ake this again! Sin Leng
