WIAW #13 Spelt & Sunflower seed bread

Hi guys and happy Wednesday. Storms, floods and gales are what we are experiencing here in Ireland today so it’s a day for a fire and some cooking 🙂

Today I have the recipe for Spelt and Sunflower seed bread that so many of you liked on Facebook. I also have a full WIAW with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yay go me LOL 😀

Breakfast: Two grilled bacon medallions, a poached egg and heated tinned tomatoes with pepper and Worcestershire sauce

Healthy breakfast

Lunch: Baby gem lettuce topped with hot chili made with lean steak (leftover for the previous nights dinner) topped with char-grilled halloumi and an extra bit of grated cheddar on the side – this was SOOOO delicious!


Dinner: Frittata with turkey salami, peppers, broccoli, onions, sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, courgettes and cheese


Snacks: Spelt and Sunflower seed bread with homemade chicken liver pate

Spelt bread


  • 2 cups of wholegrain spelt flour
  • 1 cup of almond meal / flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats
  • 500ml buttermilk
  • Handful of sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp of treacle

Get baking

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C / 400F
  2. In a bowl mix the spelt flour, rolled oats, almond flour and baking powder (I had no bicarbonate of soda, surprisingly, so I used baking powder, feel free to use either)
  3. Add the buttermilk and combine well
  4. Add the sunflower seeds and treacle and mix
  5. Put the dough in to a pre-greased loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes
  6. Check the loaf by knocking the bottom – when it is cooked through it will sound hollow
  7. Move to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing
