This spelt bread recipe is as delicious and easy to make as it is nutritious. Chia seeds and flax seeds contain nutrients like fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids and can help lower blood pressure, improve heart and bone health. This is a delicious, quick bread recipe for a wonderfully juicy spelt bread that's jam packed full of goodness with golden flax seeds and sunflower seeds. Easy to make yourself and super healthy. Enjoyed it with butter, cheese, and / or your favorite cold cuts, this wholesome bread is a delicious, healthy treat for breakfast.

  • 3 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 60 g Golden flaxseeds, crushed
  • 400 ml Water
  • 7 g Dried yeast
  • 530 g Organic spelt berries, finely milled to flour (or use wholemeal spelt)
  • 100 g Sunflower seeds
  • 1 Egg, medium
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • Some sunflower seeds for the loaf pan
  • Some flaxseed seeds for the loaf pan
  • A little butter for the loaf pan
  1. Add the chia seeds to 200 ml of water and leave to soak for approx. 8 hours (you can also prepare this the day before). Shortly before preparing the bread, also add the crushed flax seeds and dry yeast to 200 ml lukewarm water and leave to swell for about 15 minutes.
  2. Mix together the sunflower seeds, freshly milled spelt flour, egg, salt, honey and olive oil. Add the flaxseed-yeast mixture and the chia seeds and knead with the dough hook of the mixer for about 5 minutes. Cover the dough in the bowl with a kitchen towel and leave to rise in a warm place for 60 minutes.
  3. Grease a loaf pan (about 25cm) well wíth butter and sprinkle in some sunflower seeds and linseeds so that they stick to the walls of your loaf pan. Scrape the dough into the loaf pan and leave to rise, covered, for another 60 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Bake the bread in the middle of the oven for about 40-45 minutes. Leave to cool completely.

Beautiful bread. I love bread but hubby is not a fan of bread.

My name is Erika. 1/7/22 12:43

I haven't done any baking for several weeks except for one quick strawberry sheet cake. I am ready to do some more, and your bread looks amazing. I love bread with a bit of crunch to it also, and this one looks like it must crunch a bit. Happy July! hugs-Erika

Hi Angie, it'sBernadette. Lovely breakfast bread. I can just taste it smeared with some Irish butter. Happy half year and I hope July brings a holiday to your plans.

It does look hearty and healthy too! Bread has gone up in price here something terrible, so maybe we should all start making our own.

This looks really good, I love the combination of spelt and chia.

It's Judee- this bread does contain so many healthy ingredients. I think we sometimes forget that it is food that helps contribute to our health! So many don't even give the ingredients a thought. This looks so hearty and delicious too. Your husband is a lucky guy!

I adore a good seedy bread, this one fits the bill. It would be delicious toasted with butter and preserves.

Can I call this Power bread? They are loaded with healthy nutritious ingredients.

I often add linseeds or chia seeds to my bread, but never thought to add both together. Going to try that next time.
