"This is the bread that Ezekiel lived off of while he was in the desert for two years. It is supposed to be nutritionally complete. The recipe calls for grinding your own flour from a variety of grains and dried beans." — Karin Christian

2 1/2 cups

2 (.25 ounce) packages

Very good! It was easy to make and went fast! It is a little crumbly though, just don't try to slice it until it is cool. Don't be intimidated by the whole 'grinding your own flour' thing, you can easily do it in a blender, just use small amounts. Everything you need can be found in a health food store. Have fun!
This bread is easy and fun to make and is very healthy but i took off two stars because the recipe is has mistake in the ingredients. It should say 2 tsp. of salt not 2 Tablespoons. The first time we made it it was very salty so we researched it and all the other ezekiel recipes online call for 2 tsp of salt.
the recipe is just like what I pay $4.89 loaf int eh health store
I figure-by the time I buy all the ingredients-electricity for the oven
my time--I will keep buying the already made loaf
Yes, this bread is nutritionally complete. If you are interested in making things like this, you probably would like to read the book, "What Would Jesus Eat?" by Dr. Don Colbert. You can get it at Christian bookstores. Also, you can buy this bread already made from health food stores.
This bread is filling! I keep it wrapped and refrigerated. I have one slice for breakfast every morning and it lasts about 2 weeks. This is a great diet meal for the money. It also makes a great french toast!
I ran out of honey last time and substituted a small portion of molasses. It gave a robust flavor, but didn't rise as much as I thought it should.
This is very hearty bread. Must be treated like a sweet bread, in that it holds together better if put in a plastic wrap and then used the next day. Very filling.
Pleasant texture. I keep mine in the frig. Warms nicely in a toaster oven.
Very good bread.I soak the wheat berries first,cover with water,(2 days),change water once a day,then drain,and grind.Barley and beans I soak overnight then drain and grind.Millet and lentils I leave dry.Sometimes I decrease the water amount by half cup just depends on how the dough feels.I use chickpeas instead of beans too.You can even let the beans and wheat sprout then grind.I find you get the same benefits but no gas.
Very yummy bread, but also very gas producing due to the bean content.
