Danish Bread

Unlike traditional fluffy American bread, Scandinavian breads are loaded with whole grains, nuts and seeds and have a dense texture.

  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup flax seeds
  • ½ cup chopped hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup psyllium seed husks
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1½ cups water
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon honey

Savory additions:

  • ½ teaspoon each rosemary, dried garlic, and caraway seeds

Sweet additions:

  • ¼ cup currants or raisins
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Coconut sugar for garnish


  1. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients.
  2. In a measuring cup, whisk together water, olive oil, and honey (whisk in savory or sweet additions if using). Add to dry ingredients and stir thoroughly to combine; mixture will be a little bit soggy. Pour into bread pan and smooth top. Cover, and let rest overnight at room temperature.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°.
  4. Bake bread for 20 minutes. Carefully flip bread directly onto oven rack and bake for another 40-45 minutes, until very browned on outside, and sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool completely before slicing or freezing.
  5. Serve with spreads, jams or butter. Enjoy!
