I found sunflower seed flour at my local health food store the other day and was dying for a chance to try it out! This whole wheat yeast bread has whole seeds as well for crunch and ground flaxseed for extra oomph!

  1. In a large bowl (or in a stand mixer with the dough hook), combine flours, sugar, flaxseed, allspice and yeast, mixing well.
  2. Stir in the warm water until it comes together into a shaggy dough. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Beat in the butter until well incorporated, then knead (in the mixer or on a floured board) for 10 minutes.
  4. Cover and let sit for 30 minutes.
  5. Knead in the sunflower seeds, shape into a loaf and place into a greased loaf pan.
  6. Cover and let rise 45 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  8. Bake loaf for 45 minutes, turn out of the pan immediately and cool on a wire rack.
