Ezekiel Bread

4 cups warm water (110 degrees F)
1 cup honey
1/2 cup olive oil
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

1/2 cup barley
1/2 cup millet
1/4 cup green lentils
2 tablespoons great Northern beans
2 tablespoons red kidney beans
2 tablespoons pinto beans
2-1/2 cups hard wheat
1-1/2 cups spelt or rye
2 tablespoons salt

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 F (175 degrees C) for 45 to 50 minutes, or until loaves are golden brown. Makes 2 loaves.
