Sunflower Seeds Bread

Sunflower Seeds Bread: A super seedy bread loaded with sunflower seeds to make the breakfast healthy and filling.As you know I am doing five different seeds recipes for this month for Cooking Carnival .This is my last recipe with Sunflower seeds under Breakfast category and I thought it to be all time favourite “Bread”.

The recipe has been adapted from Tablespoon’s and turned out perfect.We loved the taste and texture of the bread and to my surprise, the bread was gone in an hour after making.Once my dough rose I was about to use my 8″ loaf pan but I couldn’t find it on time, so had to use the 9″ pan and that’s why the slices were so small.The bread has become a regular favourite of my family and I have had made it three times since then.
