Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup roasted salted sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tbsp flax seed
  • 1 tsp salt

Preparation

1. Place the yeast, warm water and honey in the bowl fitted with the kneading/crushing blade. Launch the P1 pastry program. After 30 seconds, open the lid and add the flours, sunflower seeds, flax seed and salt. After 2 minutes 30 seconds of mixing, your dough should be shaped like a ball. Be careful to leave it in the Prep&Cook to rise for the next 40 minutes of the program.

2. After 40 minutes, remove the dough using a spatula and knead for 5 minutes by hand on a lightly floured surface. Form a ball and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour 30 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

4. Place a bowl of very hot water on the lower rack in the oven (this will help achieve a nice crust). Bake for 25 minutes. Lower the oven to 350°F and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
