Introduction

An easy healthy loaf. Very tasty too. You can use whatever mix of seeds takes your fancy. If you are going to put some on the top of the loaf brush with beaten egg and milk first. Helps them stick I sometimes mix the final 225gms of flour using malted barley and /or rye or whatever I have
