Flaxseed Meal Sourdough Sandwich Bread

If you are looking for something healthy and nutritious, then this flaxseed meal sourdough sandwich bread is for you.

It is super soft, it stays fresh for long, and it is delicious for any kind of sandwiches.


Sourdough Starter



Day 1


  • 10 pm add starter to the water and whisk together, add flour, mix well, cover loosely, let it sit at a room temp 74-78F for about 8-10 hours until starter reaches its peak (at least triples in volume).

Day 2


  • Mix water, flour, honey, sourdough starter (70g on its peak, the rest use for future feedings), yeast( if you are using it), salt flaxseed meal and all flour.
  • Mix the dough on low speed of your mixing machine for 3-5 minutes, or KitchenAid on speed 3 for 7-9 minutes until well incorporated.
  • Add soft butter or oil, mix for 10-15 more minutes until the dough is well incorporated. It will look sticky at the beginning but eventually the dough has to come up together.

  • Cover and let it proof for 2-4 hours at 78-84F/ 26-30C.
  • During that time perform 2 stretches and folds.
  • The dough should become puffy.
  • Generously sprinkle work surface with whole wheat flour. Dump the dough.
  • Shape as desired. I rolled it into a  roll same length as a baking/loaf pan. 
  • Transfer the shaped loaf into the loaf pan.
  • Cover the dough and let it proof for 2-4 hours at 78-84F/ 26-30C until it doubles in volume.
  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Bake for 35 min until golden brown.

  1. Good day Natalya
    Your recipe requires a 13 inch Pullman pan. I have a 9 inch Pullman. What percentage would I reduce your recipe so it’ll fit that size pan? Thanks and take care

    1. Jeanette, hi!
      I’m using
      8.27*4.80*4.53 Inch
      Just changed it in the post. Thank you 🙏

  2. No electric mixer…do I need to knead or just do more folds?

    1. Sorry…wrong email…sending again

    2. More folds 🙏

  3. Just out of the oven, looks okay!
    Thank you ☺️

    1. Enjoy 🙏

  4. Dear natasha…what do mean by flaxseed meal? How to do that?

    1. It’s like a flour made from flaxseeds

  5. Natalya, if I want to make your loaf in a 13 inch Pullman would I increase all ingredients by 45% or some other percentage? Your 9 inch Pullman loaf yields 715g. Do you know how many grams of dough I’d need for the 13 inch pan? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks so much

    1. I would increase the amount by 40-45%

  6. Could you please add a print recipe function? Thanks!

    1. Hi!
      We are trying to go green. Sorry for inconvenience.

  7. How do I adapt if I am kneading or folding by hand, without stand mixer? TX much!
