"This recipe makes delicious communion bread that is completely unleavened and suited for religious purposes. It has a unique, chewy texture and the delicious taste of butter and honey. Great alternative to bland communion wafers or crispy matzo crackers. Kids at our church love it, and so do the grown ups." — BILLMI

I use this recipe all the time. It is excellent for communion. The kids love it! Sweet and chewey. I cut it into small pieces, since it is so chewey.
No wonder it's too salty. Try 1 teaspoon salt and 3 TABLESPOONS honey.
After reading the other suggestions, I realized that the measurements were, indeed, reversed for the salt and honey (use 1 tsp salt and 3 T honey!). Even after making the adjustments with the salt and honey, I needed more flour - about 6 C total - and after kneading the dough for 12 minutes (!) the bread was still too dense for communion bread, and didn't seem cooked all the way through. For home use it's a pretty nice taste, especially with homemade jelly - but the texture just won't make it for communion at church.
The bread came out very heavy and difficult for individuals to break apart. I do not recommend this recipe at all.
I tried to make one loaf of this. Problem was that I added 3/4 Tablespoon of salt instead of 3/4 Teaspoon. Everyone loved it, but it was obviously way too salty. Goes well with other food. Is it supposed to be that thick?
This recipe is way too salty. I was expecting chewy, not doughy when it was done. The consistency was more like that of bread that had not cooked fully and I let it cook past the full time recommended by the recipe. I was in a pinch for a recipe and praying for a good one. This isn't it! I didn't have time to make a trial run before I needed it. If I had, I definitely wouldn't have served this at my church.
I really liked the bread but not for communion. It was way to hard to tear and very heavy. But we sure enjoyed eating it at home. I won't make it again though.
This bread turned out tough and chewy, but not particularly tasty. It is quite salty and not sweet. I do not recommend it.
