  • 1 8x4 inch loaf pan you can use a 9x4 as well, the loaf will just be shorter like mine


  • 2 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted
  • 3/4 cups almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup psyllium seed husks
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups room temperature water


  • Coat bread loaf pan with olive oil or a nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • In a very large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Add maple syrup, olive oil, and water and mix together thoroughly. I use my hands to do this, ensuring it's all very combined and the dry ingredients are evenly distributed. This is what Baker does, and well, who am I to debate?
  • Spoon mixture into your loaf pan and smooth out the top with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
  • Cover loosely with a clean dish towel and refrigerate for 6-24 hours. I usually do this overnight and bake off in the morning.
  • An hour before it's time to bake, pull the bread out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature.
  • Make sure there is a middle rack in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  • Bake the bread for 60 minutes or so, until nicely browned and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven, let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely for 2 hours. Yes, 2 hours.. this is a DENSE bread.
  • I like this sliced very thin, so toast and eat right away or slice it all up and freeze it so you have beautiful seeded bread anytime you please.
