Using Nuts and Seeds in Bread

Nuts and seeds add an additional flavor to your bread. Try different types in your favorite recipe. Toasting nuts and seeds brings out their full flavor.

Chopped or sliced nuts

Your favorite nuts can be used interchangeably in bread recipes. Try walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, peanuts, or Brazil nuts.

Toasted nuts.

Use your toaster oven to quickly toast a small amount. Or you can place nuts on a baking sheet with sides in a 350°F (177°C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes until they turn a golden brown.


Sesame, caraway, poppy, and sunflower seeds are as versatile are nuts. To toast seeds, just put them into a small nonstick skillet and toast them over medium heat, stirring constantly, until golden.
