This recipe offers a number of healthful benefits by incorporating sunflower, chia, caraway, sesame, and poppy seeds in one excellent gluten-free loaf. The chia seeds also absorb liquid, which helps maintain more moisture in the bread.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to combine. Set aside.

Step 2

Dissolve honey and yeast in 1 1/2 cups warm water in a medium bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

Add seed mixture, yeast mixture, oil, vinegar, and eggs; beat at low speed until blended.

Step 4

Spoon batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover with plastic wrap coated with cooking spray, and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until dough reaches top of pan.

Step 5

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 6

Bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
