2 loaves


  • 4 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 1 cup honey

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

  • 2 ½ cups wheat berries

  • 1 ½ cups spelt flour

  • ½ cup barley

  • ½ cup millet

  • ¼ cup dry green lentils

  • 2 tablespoons dry great Northern beans

  • 2 tablespoons dry kidney beans

  • 2 tablespoons dried pinto beans

  • 2 tablespoons salt


  1. Mix water, honey, olive oil, and yeast in a large bowl. Let sit for 3 to 5 minutes.

  2. While yeast mixture sits, stir together wheat berries, spelt flour, barley, millet, lentils, great northern beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans together until well mixed. Grind in a flour mill.

  3. Add fresh milled flour-bean mixture and salt to yeast mixture; stir until well mixed, about 10 minutes. The dough will be loose like a batter bread.

  4. Pour dough into two greased 9x5-inch loaf pans.

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

  6. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until loaves are golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes.
