Sunflower Whole Wheat Bread Mix

Lots of flavor, a ton of sunflower seeds, and the perfect touch of honey.

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?


    • What's this bread like? Well, it's whole wheat flour with some white flour mixed in, enough to make it soft and moist.  It's sweetened with honey.  And then it's absolutely loaded with sunflower seeds--I mean every bite.
    • What does it taste like? All those sunflower seeds make it a very nutty bread. There is not a lot of honey, but enough that it's just pleasantly sweet. It's got milk in it too, so it's a "milk and honey" bread.
    • How tall is it? With the right water temperature, it's six or seven inches tall in your bread machine.
    • Why is the water temperature important? The ideal temperature for yeast is 79 degrees. We ask you to use 80 degree water, close enough.
    • What if I don't have a bread machine? It's easy to make in your oven.
    • It says "no preservatives." How long will it last? Not for weeks like the store loaves loaded with preservatives.  We recommend not more than five days. If you're not going to use it all, slice it and put it in the freezer.  Thaw it in the toaster.


    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.

    Whoops, there's one that is not five-star.  But check it out. She just forgot to click the five-star button

    What should you do with this bread?

    Make this sandwich. Make this a grilled cheese sandwich.  And since it's snowing right now, I would put a soup with it.  I highly recommend this superlative clam chowder recipe.

    And I would make it a rule, never to leave home until you've had your morning toast. Try it with Harvest Peach Cobbler Jam.  That will change your day.

    Don't pass up on this bread for french toast. It makes great wholesome french toast.

    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!

    Love the Sunflower Whole Wheat Bread mix. Great for sandwiches or toast but it really shines when you make some French Toast. A dash of cinnamon gives it a special flare. I’ll be getting more….so good!

    Easy and convenient!
