Carrot & oat bread

We were getting a bit bored with just the usual bread so I tried to experiment a bit with different ingredients. This one came up as a winner so far. :)

900 g flour
1 tsp salt
7 g dried yeast
1 tsp caster sugar
700 ml water
2 handfuls of porridge oats
half cup sunflower seeds plus extra for sprinkling
1 large carrot, grated
2 tbsp wheat germ
1 egg, beaten mixed  with a tsp salt

Mix the yeast with appr. half cup of warm water and the sugar. When frothy mix with the rest of the ingredients. Knead on a floured surface until firm smooth and elastic. Put in a gresed bowl, cover and leave in a warm place until doubled in size.
Grease a baking tray, shape your bread and cover. Leave it for half an hour. Then brush with the egg, sprinkle with seeds and bake in a pre-heated (200 C) oven for 45 mins or until sounds hollow when tapped on the base.
