Homemade Ezekiel Bread

Ezekiel 4:9 ~ "Take wheat & barley, beans & lentils, millet & spelt; put them in a storage jar & use them to make bread for yourself..."

To make your own Ezekiel bread...

~Combine the following whole grains:
2-1/2 cups hard red wheat
1-1/2 cups spelt or rye (Biblically spelt was used, Ezekiel 4:9)
1/2 cup barley (hulled barley)
1/4 cup millet
1/4 cup lentils (green preferred)
2 Tbs. great northern beans
2 Tbs. red kidney beans
2 Tbs. pinto beans
~Stir the above ingredients very well. Then grind in flour mill.

~Measure into large bowl:
4 cups lukewarm water
1 cup honey
1/2 cup oil

~Add to liquids:
freshly milled flour from the above mixture of grains
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. yeast

~Stir or knead until well kneaded, about 10 minutes. This is a batter-type bread and will not form a smooth ball.

~Pour dough into greased pans. You may use 2 large loaf pans (10x5x3) or 3 med. loaf pans or 2-9x13 brownie pans.

~Let rise in a warm place for one hour or until the dough is almost to the top of the pan. If it rises too much it will over flow the pan while baking.

~Bake at 350o for 45-50 minutes for loaf pans and 35-40 minutes for brownie pans.

*For fasting divide bread into 8 equal parts. Eat a 1/2 pound cake and drink a quart of water every day.

  1. Are the beans & LENTILS RAW OR COOKED?

  2. They need to be raw/UNcooked so that you can grind them together make your 'flour'. Thanks for asking!

  6. Hi,

    Your recipe for Ezekiel Bread looks delicious. Where did you get your flour mill, and is there a substitute for the pinto beans mentioned in the recipe?

    Thanks,
    Camilla Allen

    1. Hi Camilla ~ thanks for commenting. You can mill your ingredients 2 ways: 1) it takes time, but you can mill the small amount of ingredients in a small coffee grinder that is dedicated to herbs, spices & wheats; 2) you can buy an excellent, inexpensive mill at urbanhomemaker.com.

      Blessings . . .
