  • Dissolve 1 tsp sugar in 1/2 cup warm water in large bowl. Sprinkle in yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, then stir well.

  • Stir in oats, bran, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, salt and 2-3/4 cups of remaining flour gradually. If necessary, add more flour to make a soft dough which leaves sides of bowl. Turn out onto a floured board. Round up into a ball.
