2 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 cups water

cup hulled pumpkin seeds (often labeled pepitas)

cup hulled sunflower seeds (sometimes labeled sunflower kernels, hearts or meats)

cup whole flaxseeds

cup white sesame seeds

cup chia seeds

1 cup quick oats

cup quick barley

cup psyllium seed husks

cup slivered almonds, toasted

cup hazelnuts, toasted

1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt

Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a measuring cup, whisk together the honey, olive oil and water.

In a medium bowl, mix together the pumpkin seeds, sunflower kernels, flaxseeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, oats, barley, psyllium seed husks, almonds, hazelnuts and salt. Pour in the water mixture and mix well.

Pat the mixture into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing the top with moistened fingers. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for at least 3 hours or up to overnight.

When ready to bake, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Uncover the loaf and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the loaf pan and place on a wire rack in the oven. Bake for another 30 minutes, or until deep golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped. Let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Serves 12.
