|Easy||30 m.||For 15 units|
- 300 gr. whole wheat flour
- 100 ml. water
- 25 ml. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 15 ml. maple syrup
- 10 gr. baking powder
- 75 gr. sunflower seeds
- In a wide bowl, add the flour (sifting it), the baking powder, the salt and 2/3 of the total of the sunflower seeds. Mix well.
- Add the oil, the syrup and the water and knead until all the ingredients are well integrated.
- Put the dough in a smooth and clean surface, continue kneading a little more until obtaining a homogeneous dough and form a ball.
- Preheat the oven to 200º. Meanwhile, place the dough on vegetable paper and roll it out with the help of a rolling pin until it is well rolled out and with a thickness of about 5 mm., approximately.
- Spread the rest of the sunflower seeds uniformly over the dough, add a little salt and roll out again so that the sunflower seeds and the salt are well adhered.
- Place the vegetable paper with the dough on a baking tray and cut the dough into 2 cm wide and 10 cm. long portions. When all them are cut, put the tray in the oven and bake for 12 minutes. After this time, remove the sunflower seed bread from the oven, wait for it to cool down and serve.
- The flour is always better to sift it when adding it to the bowl so that lumps do not form, but it is recommended that, once passed through the strainer, you add the bran of the whole flour that remains in it and mix well to not lose the nutrients of the whole grain.
- If you don't have a rolling pin on hand, you can use a smooth, clean bottle to roll out the dough.
- If you want, you can substitute maple syrup for agave syrup.
