Ezekiel Fasting Bread

"Take also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils and millet, and spelt and put them in one vessel…" Ezekiel 4:9


  • 2 1/2 cups hard red wheat berries
  • 1 1/2 cups spelt or rye (Biblically Spelt was used, Ezekiel 4:9)
  • 1/2 cup barley, hulled
  • 1/4 cup millet
  • 1/4 cup dried lentils, green (preferred)
  • 2 tablespoons dried great northern beans
  • 2 tablespoons dried red kidney beans
  • 2 tablespoons dried pinto beans
  • 4 cups lukewarm water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons instant yeast


  1. Combine all the grains. Stir well, and grind in a flour mill.
  2. Measure the water, honey and olive oil into a large bowl. Add the flour mixture (grains), salt and yeast.
  3. Stir or knead until well kneaded about 10 minutes. Since this is a batter-type bread, it will not form a smooth ball. Divide the dough and put into 2 greased (10 x 5 x 3-inch) loaf pans, 3 medium loaf pans or 2 (9 x 12) brownie pans. Let rise in a warm place for one hour or until the dough is almost to the top of the pans. Don t allow it to rise too much or it will overflow the pans while baking.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 50 minutes for the loaf pans and 35 40 minutes for the brownie pans.
