READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
YIELD: 16 slices




  • Place the flour, flaxseed, sesame seeds and dry yeast in a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Slowly add in the honey and water, keep mixing as you go with an electric mixer until you reach a dough consistency.
  • Sprinkle some flour on a cleaned work surface, then knead the dough until you have a firm ball.
  • Place the dough in a large bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and leave for 1-1 1/2 hours. (Until the dough has doubled in size).
  • Grease your loaf tin with coconut oil.
  • Once the dough has risen, remove it from the bowl and place it in your tin.
  • I sprinkle the top of mine with a few more sesame seeds (but this is optional).
  • Slice a few cuts on top of the loaf and then cover with a kitchen towel again for another 30-40 minutes, to let it rise again.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/390°F.
  • Bake the loaf in the oven for 20-25 minutes, then leave out to cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
