How to make Vegan Hemp Protein Bread

This high in protein and fibre bread is simply delicious. It’s earthy and nutty and has a beautiful texture. Save this recipe for your weekend baking.


  • 2 heaped tsp of yeast

  • ¼ cup lukewarm plant-based milk (I used soy milk)

  • 1 cup lukewarm water

  • 1 Tbsp raw sugar

  • 2 cups of wholemeal flour

  • ½ cup of high-grade flour/bread flour

  • 1 cup of hemp protein

  • ½ Tbsp salt


  • 2 Tbsp of pumpkin or sunflower seeds

  • 2 Tbsp of hemp hearts


  1. In a large bowl, whisk dry yeast, lukewarm milk, lukewarm water, and raw sugar.

  2. Add the flour, hemp protein and salt and mix very well. Transfer the dough onto a previously floured surface and knead for approx. 10 minutes. How to know it’s kneaded enough: gently press it with your finger. If the dent stays, the dough needs more kneading. If it springs back to its original shape, the dough is ready.

  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place it in a floured mixing bowl. Cover with a tea towel and let it rest for 1 hour.

  4. By this moment, your dough should have doubled its size. Knead it again for 2-3 minutes and shape it into a ball again.

  5. Place the ball in a bowl lined with baking paper. Generously brush or spray water over the bread and sprinkle the seeds on top. Cover with a tea towel and let it rise for 30 mins. Place a cast iron pot (Dutch oven) on a lower shelf of the oven and preheat the oven to 220’C. (for 30 minutes while the bread is raising).

  6. Score the bread. Remove the cast iron pot from the oven. Carefully place the bread into the pot holding the baking paper. Cover with the lid and place it in the oven. Bake the bread for 30 minutes.

  7. Uncover and bake for 10-15 more minutes.

  8. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool down on a cooling rack.

  9. Enjoy! 💚
