omega 3 sourdough bread

  • Author: Jessica Penner, RD
  • Yield: 16 slices


A hearty, fluffy bread with good-for-you fats and healthy bacteria.


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup hemp hearts/seeds
  • ¼ cup ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 – ¾  cup all purpose flour


  • Add the water, oil, maple syrup, sourdough starter, salt, cinnamon, walnuts, and seeds to the bowl of a stand mixer. (That’s everything but the flours). Use the kneading hook to mix it all together.
  • Add the whole wheat flour and mix again.
  • Add 1 cup all purpose flour and mix. Keep adding little bits of flour until the dough starts to pull away from the bowl.
  • Knead for 8 minutes.
  • Grease a second bowl. Transfer the dough to greased bowl and flip the dough around so that all sides are greased.
  • Cover and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled (about 3-12 hours depending on your starter).
  • Form into a loaf and place in a loaf pan or onto a baking sheet. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place about 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Bake about 25-30 minutes or until crust is slightly brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
