Whole Wheat Bread with Sunflower Seeds and Oats
Dissolve the yeast in 2 cups lukewarm water until smooth. Place flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the dissolved yeast and the oil and knead with the kneading hook of the electric mixer until smooth. Add a little warm water or flour if necessary. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40 minutes.
Add the sunflower seeds to the dough. Knead the dough a second time on a floured surface. Shape the dough into an elongated strand shape and transfer it to a greased loaf pan lined with oats. Brush with warm water and sprinkle with remaining oats. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake for about 60 minutes. The bread is done when bottom sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from the oven, unmold and let cool on a wire rack.
