• 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup plain soy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • juice and peel of one lemon


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  2. In a blender, grind the flax seeds to a fine powder. Add 1/3 cup water and blend until frothy. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine oil, tahini, and honey. Mix until well blended. In a medium bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Add this to the wet mixture, beating until smooth. Mix in soy milk, lemon juice and peel. Fold in sunflower seeds and raisins. Pour batter into the loaf pan.
  4. Sprinkle poppy seeds evenly over the top. Bake for 50-60 minutes (and then toothpick test it). Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then completely on a cooling rack before attempting to slice.
