depends on what you like

1

cup bran

1

cup rolled oats

1/2

cup linseed

 

 

as you like

sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seed, nuts

 

 

to season

fennel seed, anise seed or coriander

 

 


PREPARATION

Dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water. If you use dry yeast simply mix it with the flour. Mix the flour with all the ingredients (give your fantasy free rein, you can many more ingredients than stated above!). Add as much lukewarm water as you need and mix it to a thick dough. You don't have to kneed the dough, that's the nice part about the whole story!

Cover the dough with a wet towel and let it stand in a room without any draught for at least 3 hours (or over night).

Bake the breads in any size you like for about 45 minutes in a 250 celsius oven.

Our special hint:
You could also use leftovers of rice or barley. The bread is relatively moist and if you wrap it in a towel it stays fresh for a long time.
