Sprouted Wheat Berries Essene Bread Recipe

This is said to be the first bread known to mankind. It is dated back to BC, and is a bread made from sprouted wheat berries, ground and cooked at low temperature or in the heat of the sun, to make the most nutritious bread possible. For a raw Essene bread, dehydrate the shaped bread at no more than 42 degrees C. Otherwise, cook in your oven at up to 100 degrees C.

  • Rinse and soak the wheat grains for 8 hours or overnight.
  • Rinse, drain and sprout the wheat grains until the little tail is the same size as the wheat grain. This will take a day or 2 depending on the temperature and humidity in your kitchen. Once ready, rinse and drain.
  • Gently grind your sprouted wheat berries, add the raisins and almonds if using, and shape the dough into 2 small loafs.
  • Cook or dehydrate your loaves, until the outside is firm and springs back when gently pushed with a finger.
  • The bread will keep for over a week in the fridge.
