2-1/2 cups wheat berries
1-1/2 cups spelt flour
1/2 cup barley
1/2 cup millet
1/4 cup dry green lentils
2 tablespoons dry Great Northern beans
2 tablespoons dry kidney beans
2 tablespoons dried pinto beans
4 cups warm water
1 cup honey
1/2 cup olive oil
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
2 tablespoons salt


Loaf of Ezekiel Bread with cutting knife

Measure the water, honey, olive oil, and yeast into a large bowl. Let sit for 3 to 5 minutes.

Stir all of the grains and beans together until well mixed. Grind in a flour mill. Add fresh milled flour and salt to the yeast mixture; stir until well mixed, about 10 minutes. The dough will be like that of a batter bread. Pour dough into two greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.

Let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until dough has reached the top of the pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, or until loaves are golden brown.
