Whole grain seed bread recipe. A seedy, whole grain filled Sandwich bread. Makes great grilled sandwiched. Vegan Soyfree Nutfree Recipe . Makes a 9 inch or 9.5 inch bread pan
I love adding seeds and grains to my every day breads. They up the nutrition of the flour + water bread and add flavor. Home made breads also are sturdy compared to the soft store bought versions. Home made breads make fabulous grilled sandwiches that can hold a ton of dry or moist veggies without breaking down. They also make fabulous french toast without dissolving into the french toast batter.
I generally prefer to add cooked cracked grains as they add moisture as well are easy on the teeth. Don’t get me started on my teeth issues :). Lets just say those chewy or crunchy grains in the 9 grain or 21 grain or seed bread from the store, get bothersome very quickly.
This loaf has whole seeds and grains like millet and oat. The millet and sesame seeds are lightly toasted to bring out the flavor and to make the millet a bit crunchy/porous. Most of the seeds and grains are added into the dough, and some are sprinkled over the loaf. If you have trouble sticking the seeds and grain to the bread, just add all into the dough. Make this multigrain and seed bread.
The non dairy yogurt in the loaf keeps the bread moist. Use coconut cream as a substitute. Cover the bread towards the end of baking so the crust and seeds do not brown too much.
Makes great french toasts! Stuffed Almond Butter Date Caramel Brownie French Toasts to be precise.

Thats a masala mac and tomato cayenne chao cheese grilled sandwich for lunch and almond butter Sriracha sandwich for snack later.
I made this using what I had on hand (chia seeds, sesame seeds, oats, and pumpkin seeds) using the nondairy yogurt option and it turned out perfectly. I also put a pan on the bottom of the oven with water in it before closing the oven so the crust would be more golden. This easy recipe makes bread making seem approachable and very much worth it!
Can I replace the oil & yogurt with apple sauce?
Would it be possible to replace the yogurt with something else? Almond milk or sour cream? Just looking in my fridge. Haha
yes sour cream will work
I would like a bread recipe vegan and gluten
There are some gluten-free breads on the blog here https://www.veganricha.com/category/gluten-free-bread
It is Vegan 🙂 I’m in the process of baking this. I left it in the fridge overnight though because I fell asleep on the couch while to dough was rising. Lol letting it warm up and tossing it in the oven. It looks delicious!

This looks amazing, Richa! I bet it made your house smell like a bakery 🙂
The whole loaf is gone already. My husband loves it. He asked me if it would be to much work to bake one every week 😀 … I already bake your gingerbread cake every week just for him, because he loves it so much. He eats the whole thing by himself over the course of a week lol XD …. so another 5 star rating from my husband 😉
Yay! so fun! I bake breads every week as well, though usually plain wheat white mix for weekly use, with some variations when I feel like it 🙂 I am so glad you all loved it!
Oh man! My loaf has just come out of the oven and looks goooood. I couldn’t resist to taste a little piece and it’s delicious : D … I’m curious what my husband is going to say … 🙂 😉

I love everything about this bread and have most of the ingredients in my pantry. Heading to kitchen as I type!~!
Your bread recipes always look so delicious! This looks like an easy and tasty bread recipe! Thanks. I will have to try it! Homemade bread is always the best. 🙂
I love bread, but never bake it, so I thought it was about time I tried. I followed this recipe and the bread turned out amazing – like something from the bakers – crunchy with seeds on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside – could not have asked for a better result. Thank you!
yay so glad you made it and it turned out well! <3
I like the cornstarch replacement. Looks yummy!
If I can convince my housemates to let me turn on the oven for 45 minutes (its getting warm here) then I really want to make this tonight for dinner!
Hi. What can I substitute the flour with in a gluten free form? Can the bread also be made in a bread machine? Thank you. Love your recipes and website!
Hi Allison, Gluten-free baking is very different and direct substitutions don;t work out well. See my gluten-free bread recipes here https://www.veganricha.com/category/gluten-free-bread
Wow! It looks so gorgeous! I do not eat bread often, but when I do I always bake your multigrain rolls. This looks like a bread I have to try. Maybe I will make buns out of it… hmm.. the list of recipes to make from your blog keeps getting longer 🙂
Great recipe!! I love sprouted bread!
You are an amazing cook and photographer! I feel hungry looking at your photos. Any way I can just click “add to cart” 🙂 and get it delivered? 🙂
