A simple, 7 Ingredient muesli bread studded with pumpkin seeds, almonds and raisins. Perfect for sandwiches, french toast, or toasted with butter and honey for breakfast.
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 18 slices
  • 1.5 cups warm water
  • 3 cups unbleached flour + ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ¾ tablespoons fast acting yeast (~ one pack)
  • ¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup raw almonds
  1. Combine warm water (like bath water, or 110*), yeast, salt and flours in a large mixing bowl and stir. The result will be a sticky, rough dough. If using a stand mixer, beat at medium speed for about a minute. Otherwise just use a spoon to stir until well combined.
  2. Lift the dough out and lightly grease the bowl with nonstick spray or olive oil. Cover and let rise in the refrigerator for two hours. Alternatively, let rise for 2 hours at room temp and 2 hours in the fridge. I went straight for the fridge to save time.
  3. Once risen, lightly sprinkle the dough with flour and transfer to a floured work surface. Knead a few times and then add pumpkin seeds, almonds and raisins. Knead until until just combined, trying to keep the add-ins on the inside of the loaf, or else they’ll get too crisp while baking.
  4. Place on parchment-lined baking stone or lightly greased baking sheet. Sift a light coating of flour over the top; to help keep the dough moist. Let rest for 45-60 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 450°F while the dough rests. Place a metal or cast iron pan (not glass, Pyrex, or ceramic) on the lowest oven rack, and have 1 cup of hot water ready.
  6. When ready to bake, slash the bread 2 or 3 times with a knife, making a cut about ½-inch deep.
  7. Place bread in oven and carefully pour hot water into the shallow pan on the rack beneath. Expect it to bubble and steam; then close oven door quickly.
  8. Bake the bread for 25 to 35 minutes, or until deep, golden brown.
  9. Remove the bread from the oven and cool on a rack. Store leftovers in a plastic bag at room temp.
