This quick molasses brown bread is loaded with wholesome goodness and only takes 10 minutes to prepare. It’s crusty on the outside and moist on the inside with a rich tantalizing nutty flavour.



  1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease a 9×5″ loaf pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the flour, sunflower seeds, flax seed, hemp seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, molasses, and melted butter.
  4. Add in 1/4 of the flour mixture at a time, whisking in between to prevent lumps. The batter will be thin.
  5. Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle the rolled oats on top.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until well browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a wire rack.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container or tightly wrapped in saran wrap for 2-3 days at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 5 days.

*To make sour milk, add 1 tsp of white vinegar to each cup of milk or replace 1/4 of milk with yogurt.
