Ancient Grain Bread

Surprise, surprise, it rained again today, so most of the yard work was a out of the question, but a little experimenting in the kitchen and working on a baby quilt for a friend of mine was perfect for this type of weather.

I took out the bread machine that has not seen the light of day in the better part of a year and took inventory of the types of grains and seeds that were in the cabinets and came up with the following bread that I served with a lentil souffle for dinner tonight. The recipe turned out to be a very moist and tasty bread that is also quite nutritious. Since there are only two of us I made a small half loaf — if you have a large bread machine the ingredients will have to be adjusted.

grain and seed bread


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp quinoa grains
  • 1 1/2 tbsp amaranth grains
  • 2 tsp hulled hemp seeds
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 3 tbsp nonfat dry milk
  • 1 tsp yeast


  1. Add the ingredient to the bread machine as listed.
  2. Set the cycle for basic, light crust.
