In my ongoing efforts for food storage, I had come across the option of storing a pre-made blend of grains to make Ezekiel bread.  If you aren’t familiar with it, here is the Scripture reference:

Ezekiel 4:9

Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and spelt, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof; according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, even three hundred and ninety days, shalt thou eat thereof.

If you read verses before this, there is judgement coming upon Israel for 390 days and Ezekiel has to bear those days and more.  It’s pretty heavy duty.  Read it for yourself and ask God for help understanding.  Scripture can be tough to understand at times and patience is required.

The deal with this bread it that it’s considered to be a complete or whole nourishment food.  It has carbs, proteins, sugar, vitamins, minerals, etc.  Everything that Ezekiel needs to keep himself alive and healthy for 390 days (or 13 months).

It’s been a while since I have made it, but it’s pretty simple.  I dug out my grain grinder and pre measured bag of grain blend. img_2488

I filled the hopper with the grain mixture and began to grind it.

My flour mixture.  You can see the white endosperm flour that most people think of as ‘flour’ and the bran, the darker flakes.

Two loaves of completely eatable goodness!

It doesn’t look pretty – part of the dough spilled over during baking and the top got ripped off from he bottom when I was trying to remove it from the pan.  Still tasted great and the interesting thing about this bread it that it is very filling.  It’s a moister bread and I think pretty forgiving if you are feeling intimidated about baking bread.  The dough looks a lot like cake batter, than true kneadable bread dough.  Give it a try!
