There are several ways of making this bread. You can leave the nuts and seed whole or you can put the mixture into a food processor and process them to a texture that you prefer.
As the mixture of nuts and seeds can be expensive especially if you are buying organic you can buy them in bulk and then measure them out into freezer bags so they are ready for when you want to make the bread.
For a moister bread you can add some grated zucchini to the mix. Use about 250 g and add an extra egg.
