Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 21 rounds

Ingredients

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • I packet Red Star Yeast Active Dry Yeast or you could use Red Star Yeast Instant Dry Yeast, or Platinum Yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup oats
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup each: dried apricots raisins, dried cranberries, chopped pecans, sunflower seeds

Instructions

  • Combine warm water (I warm the water in the microwave for 30 seconds-1 minute), yeast, salt, honey and oats in a large bowl, stir once, and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes, until the mixture is foamy on top.
  • Slowly stir in the all-purpose and whole wheat flour and mix until dough just begins to form. You can do this with a stand mixer with a dough attachment set on low, or by hand (which is what I did for these bread rounds). It may seem like there is not enough water, but it is once the dough is mixed.
  • Add in the chopped dried fruit, nuts and seeds and stir a few times.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5-8 minutes, until the fruit, nuts and seeds have really been incorporated into the dough. The dough should be in one big ball shape.
  • Put the dough into an oiled bowl, cover with a kitchen towel or cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for an hour.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and shape it into a large rectangle, then using a pizza cutter or a knife cut the dough into 18-21 squares.
  • Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • One by one, take the dough squares and form them into rounds, then place on the prepared baking sheets. When all the dough has been made into rounds and on the baking sheets, cover the baking sheets with plastic wrap and allow to rise for another hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375. Remove plastic wrap from the baking sheets, and bake the bread rounds for 15 minutes, or until the bottoms are slightly golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.

Notes

These bread rounds freeze/defrost really well. To freeze them simply allow the bread rounds to cool completely, then store in a freezer storage bag. When ready to enjoy, remove a round from the freezer and allow it to come to defrost on the counter, or microwave for 30 seconds.
