Hearty and moist. Loved it! Left the seeds out as I didn't have any. Thanks!

I ate almost the whole thing by myself. DH does not like sunflower seeds, but he doesn't get to vote on the stars. I'll try a loaf with sesame seeds for him. I love this bread toasted -- the barley gives it such a crunch, and I love seeds of any kind.
