Easy multigrain bread made from just 8 ingredients! This healthy vegan bread recipe is stuffed full of oats and seeds and tastes just delicious!
Here's an easy multigrain bread recipe for you today folks!
There's nothing quite like the smell and satisfaction of baking your own bread is there?
I mean my trusted wholemeal bread and rolls recipe was one of my very first bread recipe posts in the early day's of Neil's Healthy Meals.
We've come a long way since then, but I still use that recipe.
I've been wanting to bring a new healthy bread recipe to the blog for a while. I'd had a few ideas about what I wanted it to be. Wholemeal, healthy, easy to make etc.
It was the multigrain bread my other half and I had as toast for our breakfast whilst on holiday in Bali recently that inspired me. I loved how it was stuffed full of pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
So I recreated that rustic multigrain recipe here. This recipe just had to be shared!
This delicious multigrain bread was what followed the peanut butter chocolate banana smoothie bowl as toast. Served with a delicious selection of jams and conserves!
As is the tradition around here I try to make my recipes as quick and easy for you to make as well as being healthy too.
So this bread recipe is made without any butter, sweeteners or salt.
Plus, using a sachet of instant yeast, it only takes a few hours to make.
This multigrain bread recipe is well worth trying if you've never made bread before.
It's a great first bread recipe as it doesn't require much kneading. Once you've tasted it, well, you'll be hooked!
My other half and I always have a loaf of bread from one of my bread recipes in the freezer. Sliced and ready to grab and pop in the toaster!
Wholegrain bread has always been a dietary staple in our household. It's a great source of carbohydrate, it's low in fat and a good source of protein and healthy fats.
The multigrain bread benefits are numerous too. Diets high in wholegrains are linked to a reduced risk of heart conditions such as type 2 diabetes as well as being essential for good bowel health.
Not only that wholegrains, being high in dietary fibre, keep us feeling fuller for longer!
Notes For Making This Easy Multigrain Bread
- Make sure you use proper bread flour (strong flour as we know it in the U.K) and not ordinary flours.
- Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing it into 15 - 20 slices.
- I use no preservatives so to keep the bread fresh keep it in a sealed air tight bag and it should last for 2 days.
- Can I freeze this bread? Yes! This bread is best kept in the freezer in the air tight bag. It's easy to grab slices when you want one that way.
- How long will this bread last in the freezer? It should last 2 - 3 weeks.

- 80 g porridge oats
- 120 ml boiling water
- 400 g strong white bread flour
- 100 g strong wholemeal bread flour
- 50 g sunflower seeds
- 50 g pumpkin seeds
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 7 g sachet instant yeast
- 200 ml warm water
- Extra porridge oats for decoration
- Place the porridge oats into a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Pour over the boiling water, mix together and leave the oats to absorb the water for 15 minutes.
- Add all the remaining dry ingredients to the same bowl then gradually add the warm water mixing by hand or with a dough hook, if using a stand mixer, for 5 minutes until a soft dough ball is formed.
- Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes then place into a large lightly greased bowl covered with cling film and let the dough rise until it has doubled in size. This can take 1 – 1.5 hours.
- Transfer the dough to a greased bread baking tin and press the dough down into each corner of the tin. Place the bread baking tin into a large plastic bag and leave the dough to double in size again for about 30 minutes.
- Pre-heat your oven to 220C.
- When dough has doubled lightly sprinkle the top with some cold water and scatter with some extra oats.
- Bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes until golden on top and the loaf should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Leave to cool on a wire rack before slicing.

I love a good bread stuffed with seeds! Looking at these photos, I realized that it's been a long (long!) time since I've made fresh bread here at home. Baking bread is one of my favorite kitchen pasttimes, and I'm overdue for a good loaf. I could see this one being an excellent option. Lightly toasted with a bit of butter and jam? Oh yeah, that's my kinda weekend breakfast!
This bread was at its very best in Bali when it was toasted and had some lovely local mango jam on it David! But here in Scotland I'm enjoying my mum's homemade raspberry jam on it too. It's also great for mopping up soup!
I love a whole grain nutty loaf of bread, and I’ve been wanting to do some breadmaking. Maybe this is a good recipe with which I could begin. Thanks, Neil, it sounds wonderful and looks pretty easy! Pinning!
This would be a great recipe to start off breadmaking with Laura as it really is minimum effort. Hope you give it a go! 🙂

It's been too long since I made bread, Neil -and this gorgeous yet easy loaf of yours has convinced me that needs to change! This would be wonderful with some PB and jam - so love all those seeds in there as I love bread with texture! Thanks for sharing this one Neil!
I try to make bread as often as possible Shashi. But it can be time consuming sometimes. But not with this easy bread. Glad you like it! 🙂
I love a good bread loaded with seeds, and this version sounds and looks delicious. I don't think I've ever baked a bread except except simple flatbreads like focaccia and...a banana bread (Which doesn't really count!) so I know where I can start from now 🙂
Thanks Ben, I hope you get a chance to make this! I do love a good focaccia and a banana bread too!
Nothing beats homemade fresh bread and that multigrain bread looks lovely!!
I couldn't agree more with you there Kankana that nothing beats homemade fresh bread. I'm glad you like this. Thanks so much for your lovely comment. 🙂
