Sunflower Whole Wheat Bread Mix

Make this with your bread machine, stand-type mixer, or by hand.

SKU: M128-1

Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?


  • Made with a healthy combination of wheat flour, sunflower seeds, and whole oats.
  • A soft, moist bread that your family will love.
  • Loaded with sunflower seeds--the second ingredient--for a nutty flavor and perfect texture.
  • Sweetened with honey crystals for the perfect flavor (but it's not a sweet bread).

    This bread is so good, we should have named it after a small city. But we called it "Sunflower Whole Wheat Bread." Not too snazzy. It's a whole wheat bread, but if you don't tell the kids, they won't figure it out. It's that soft and moist. 

    It looks like everyone that tried it, gave it a "5". I would give it a five. It's an absolutely killer bread.

     So far, every reviewer--100%--gave it a perfect five stars. (And one gave it ten stars.)

    Holy Moly!
    "Best of allll. This is amazing. So good that when I cut a piece I also take the crumbs off the cutting board.
    Holy moly. Stays fresh longer than other loaves. This is incredible. Best of every one I've tried.
    I'm not a fan of whole wheat or sunflower seeds and it surprised me I loved it more than any of the others. I highly recommend and suggest you order a half dozen because everyone will blow through these loaves." Kathleen Chaplin

    "Our Favorite Bread! I make bread to share with friends and family. Sunflower Whole Wheat Bread is the one they most often request." ELLEN MOONEY 

    "This is the best bread I've ever tasted, better tasting and better texture than Dave's Killer Good Seed bread, which I considered the top bread."  Joel Anderson 

    This is a wonderful whole grain bread made with the best Montana flours, the natural sweetness of honey, lots of whole oats, and sunflower seeds--just like your favorite granola. We're sure you'll love this bread, and it's so good for you too.

    It's easy to make. Make it in your bread machine or in your oven. 

    Where else do you find a wholesome bread loaded with oats and sunflower seeds?

    You've got to try this bread!

    Have not made it yet.

    Made country white first, ordered 4 packages, working my way through the orders. All have been great so far and have even recommended your company to the online bread group I belong to.

    So good! The sunflower seeds get all warm and plump. It’s amazing with honey butter.
