  • 1 loaf


  • 1 cup of oat
  • 2 cups of HerbaZest Amaranth Flour
  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds

To make your bread more wholesome, try enriching it with amaranth, a South American pseudocereal, which contains all essential amino acids and other valuable nutrients. Pumpkin and oats also enrich it with protein as well as healthy fats, fiber, and key minerals. This bread comes out soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside, and sturdy enough to use for healthy sandwiches.
