Makes 12-16 one-half inch slices


  • 1½ tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • ¾ cup raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in any combination


  1. In a deep glass or ceramic bowl, activate yeast by whisking with warm water for 1-2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and mix with spatula.
  2. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and set on counter for 8-18 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place Dutch oven, with lid, in oven for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, sprinkle flour on a clean, dry surface to prevent dough from sticking. Place dough on surface, fold over a couple of times and form into a ball. Place seam-side down and cover with plastic wrap while Dutch oven heats.
  5. Carefully drop dough ball into heated Dutch oven, seam side up, and score the top with a knife, creating a “pound” sign.
  6. Bake covered for 45 minutes. Remove lid and cook for an additional 5 minutes for top to brown. Cool bread for 40-60 minutes and serve.

For added flavor, roast seeds in a dry pan over medium/high heat until fragrant and golden, up to 10 minutes. This bread is excellent without seeds, too!.
