Sunflower Flax Bread

This is a yummy and healthy bread machine recipe that I use all of the time.

1 1/3 cups warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons honey
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/3 cups plus 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1/2 cup flax seeds (I like to use 1/4 cup ground and 1/4 cup whole seeds)
1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds

Add the ingredients to the machine in the order directed by the manufacturer (usually this order). Bake on the whole wheat, 1 1/2 lb setting.

Update: The bread machine contains a non-stick coating which is toxic, especially when heated to high temperatures, or scratched. I have been mixing the dough in the bread machine, then baking it in the oven at 350F until nicely browned, to avoid heating the non-stick surface of the pan.
