This easy bread is one of my favorite dutch oven bread recipes. It is loaded with seeds, and is no-knead so it's super easy to make.

This is one of my favorite Dutch oven bread recipes next to my regular no-knead bread. You can make this multi-seed no-knead bread right in your Dutch oven. It’s super easy, I love the added seeds, and there is no better smell than fresh bread baking. Am I right?

🍲 Ingredients

Flax Seeds: Flax seeds are so good for you! They are high in omega-3s, antioxidants, fiber, and protein. They’re so easy to add to this bread recipe, smoothies, or sprinkle on top of any food or baking. 

Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are also so good for you. They have antioxidants that can lower your risk of developing several health conditions, they’re high in fiber, and are just like their friends’ flax seeds in which they can be thrown into just about anything.

Pumpkin Seeds: Pumpkin seeds are also rich in vitamins and minerals like manganese and vitamin K. These are important in helping wounds heal. Pumpkin seeds also contain zinc, a mineral that helps the immune system!

👩‍🍳 How to Make Dutch Oven Bread

  1. In a large bowl, add the flour + seeds, combine and make a well in the center.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine warm water, sugar, yeast & salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the water-yeast mixture into the well in the large bowl.
  4. Stir with a wooden spoon until it begins to come together as a dough.
  5. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and work together for 3 minutes, until no flour streaks remain. Add more flour if it is too sticky, and more water if too dry. The dough will be soft and look between slightly bumpy and slightly smooth. 
  6. Roughly form the dough into a round and transfer to a lightly oiled bowl. Gently cover in plastic wrap and a tea towel or cloth. Let the dough rise at room temperature for 1 ½ – 2 hours in a warm place until doubled in size. 

🗒 Tips & Tricks

  • Nuts/Seeds: Swap, add, or change any nuts + seeds. Choose your favorite and customize your Dutch oven bread recipe
  • Yeast: Only use RAPID rising yeast for this bread recipe. Using regular active dry yeast will prolong the rising time + change the outcome
  • Use this bread for your favorite sandwiches, avocado toast, toast with butter, etc.

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, add the flour + seeds, combine and make a well in the center.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine warm water, sugar, yeast & salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour the water-yeast mixture into the well in the large bowl.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon until it begins to come together as a dough.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured surface and work together for 3  minutes, until no flour streaks remain. Add more flour if it is too sticky, and more water if too dry. The dough will be soft, and look between slightly bumpy and slightly smooth. 
  • Roughly form the dough into a round and transfer to a lightly oiled bowl. Gently cover in plastic wrap and a tea towel or cloth. Let the dough rise at room temperature for 1 ½ – 2 hours in a warm place until doubled in size. 

Preheat the oven to 450F.

  • Remove
    the dough from the bowl and place it on a floured counter. Lightly press down, fold four corners (the edges of the dough) into the middle, and form a ball. Remove it from the bowl and face the seam-side down, exposing the smooth side, onto a piece of parchment paper. Round the dough ball a bit more with your hands. Brush with water, and sprinkle more seeds on top.  Use a small + sharp paring knife to make a small cut down the center of the loaf. Once the oven is at temperature, place the Dutch oven inside for 15 – 20 minutes.
  • Remove the Dutch oven from the oven and take off the lid. 
  • Lift the edges of the parchment paper to carefully place the dough into the Dutch oven. Put the lid back on.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, remove the lid and bake for another 5 minutes until nice and golden!

Allow it to cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!
