Homemade bread is just the best. This sunflower seed bread is fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. A delicious gluten-free breakfast or sandwich loaf filled and topped with sunflower seeds.

For this recipe I used Schär Bread Mix B but you could also use another similar gluten-free flour blend.
