  • 400 ml Lukewarm water
  • 0,5 packet Yeast
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 50 g Ground flaxseed
  • 50 g Ground flea seeds
  • 150 g Spelled flour 630

  • 2 tbsp Flaxseed whole
  • 2 tbsp Sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Coconut oil or similar
  1. Dissolve the yeast and sugar in lukewarm water and set aside.
  2. I grind linseed and flea seeds in a coffee grinder, mix them with the two flours and the salt.
  3. Add this mixture as well as the whole seeds / kernels to the yeast solution and knead with the dough hook or the food processor to a soft dough that still sticks a little.
  4. Cover the dough and let rise for at least 4 hours.
  5. Now push the dough together with a spatula and pour into a greased loaf pan. Cover again and let rise until the volume has increased significantly.
  6. Place a fire-proof bowl with water in the oven and slide the loaf pan onto the grid in the second rail from below.
  7. Set the oven to 200 ° top / bottom heat and bake the bread for about 50-55 minutes.
  8. When the bread is ready, take it out of the oven, turn it out immediately and cover it with a kitchen towel and let it cool down on a wire rack.
  9. The bread tastes good with both sweet and savory toppings.


  1. If you don’t have flea seeds, take twice the amount of flaxseed, but reduce the water by about 20 ml.
