  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • cups whole wheat flour

  • ½

    cup white flour

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • tsp baking powder

  • 1

    cup warm water

  • 1

    T oil

  • 2

    T honey


Preheat oven to 350°. Mix all ingredients together - IT WILL BE STICKY!! (REALLY spray down your hands/spatula with PAM.) If, however, it is TOO sticky, add very small amounts of flour (recommended amounts would be: 1 additional Tablespoon of whole wheat flour, then UP TO 2 additional Tablespoons of white flour) - please wait until you have thoroughly mixed all ingredients before adding more flour! **I have never had to add the extra flour.** Divide into three parts and pat down onto parchment paper, making three "circles" about 1/4-inch-high (no higher than 1/2-inch-high). All three circles should fit onto one baking sheet - you can have them really close together. You can start out with a spatula, but I always end up using my hands to spread them on the baking sheet. **If you are working alone, have a couple teaspoons of oil in a dish to reapply oil to your hands easily when needed! This part is not always easy - be prepared for the parchment paper to move quite a bit.** They usually take about 20 minutes in the oven, but just to be safe, start off with the timer set at 17 minutes. When they are slightly brown on the edges, they are done - DO NOT OVER-BAKE (or it's crunchy). It is hard to tell, since the bread is made with whole wheat flour, but you can also touch the center of the circles and see if it is done. **Mine usually take only the 17 minutes, but I spread mine pretty thin.** If you are using for communion, take a pizza cutter and cut into strips and then across to made bite-sized squares, leaving out any hard edges. One round, depending on the size/thickness, usually gets cut into about 120 good pieces. The bread only lasts a few days, but freezes beautifully!! It is also good to munch on!
