This bread is full of nutrients with chia seeds, ground flax and sunflower seeds. The crunch of the sunflower seeds give it texture! A healthy bread for a snack or to accompany a meal.

This recipe makes two loaves of whole wheat English muffin bread. Save one for later by freezing it! I like to wrap bread in press ‘n seal wrap and then in foil to freeze.
