Here's a treat for those who don't like the traditional "fruity" breads; this one also has lots of crunch!

This is going to be one of my favorites from now on. I used all seeds specified, plus anise seed. I also cut the amount of oil and sugar slightly and added three eggs to the recipe, which I doubled to make two loaves. Very tasty bread for anyone who loves nuts or seeds. I would like to omit the white flour and try using whole wheat and maybe oatmeal flour next time to make it even healthier. I think some caraway seed would also be a good choice.
