Whole Wheat Bread with Cranberries and Sunflower Seeds


After years of buying “Homemade Bread” from local health food stores and farmers markets, I decided that I wanted my bread to come from my own home! So I did it! …And the fun thing is that you can put any variety that you ever so desire with this simple

Homemade Bread Recipe made with love by Haley

2 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast

1 1/3 Cup Warm Filtered Water (110 degrees f)

1 Tablespoons Organic Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons Local Honey

1 Cup Organic Bread Flour

2 Cups Organic Whole Wheat Flour

1 1/4 teaspoons Sea Salt

1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries

1/3 Cup Sunflower Seeds

Directions

Combine the yeast, warm water and honey. Mix together softly with your fingers only for a few seconds to incorporate the mixture. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, giving you time to gather the rest of your ingredients. When the yeast mixture looks frothy, you may begin to add in the olive oil, flour, sea salt, cranberries and sunflower seeds. Then use a wooden spoon to stir the mixture together, then use your hands to knead the dough ONLY for a few minutes until the dough looks like a soft lovely dough ball. Leave the ball in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a moist towel and allow to rise 1-2 hours, until it has double in size.

Once doubled in size, shape it into a lightly oiled loaf dish then cover again and allow to rise above the top by an inch or two. Once it has risen again, place it in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes until the bread is browned.
