Muesli Bread Recipe!

IMG_1103One of my favourite things to buy from Starbucks is their protein box, and thought, hey! I can make my own. Most of the box is super simple, cheddar cheese, grapes, apple, eggs, but of course, the best part is the little piece of muesli bread. Found a simple recipe from the Minimalist Baker, and it was absolutely delicious! Made a few adjustments, and here’s what I ended up with.


  • 112 cups warm water
  • 34 tablespoon yeast
  • 3 cups flour + 12 whole wheat flour
  • 12 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 cup cranberries
  • 12 cup sunflower seeds
  • 12 cup almonds


  1. Add warm water to yeast in a large mixing bowl, wait 2 minutes.
  2. Add flour, salt, and sugar. Beat at medium speed for one minute. The dough should be very elastic and sticky. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl.
  3. Cover, and let it rise at room temperature for 2 hours, followed by 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured surface – add the sunflower seeds, almonds, and raisins, and mix well. Sprinkle flour on the top, and let rest for an hour.
  5. During this time, heat the oven to 450°F. On the bottom rack, place a metal tray.
  6. Slash the top of the bread with a knife.
  7. Pour a cup of water into the bottom rack, and place the bread in the oven – close the oven door quickly to keep the steam in.
  8. Bake the bread for 30 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Serve warm with honey and peanut butter.

  1. Wow this looks fab! Will have to try it out. Only recently started making bread so it still scares me a bit, but this looks too good not to try!


    • It’s super delicious, and actually much easier than I thought it would be! I also rarely bake bread, so I’m glad I found such a simple recipe.
