    wildheart's Note:

    Delicious, light, different high protein bread. A great use for leftover beans, if you ever have any. You can leave out the middle rising but the bread will be more dense.

      The directions didn't specify, but I let the dough rise until doubled after I shaped it into loaves and put it in the pans. It didn't dome up like I expected, but then again I used half whole wheat flour and I think that might have made it a little too heavy. The taste is great, and the texture is very fine. Next time I'll just ease up on the whole wheat flour, and I think it'll be perfect. This is a great addition to my bread baking arsenal -something different, that's high in protein and flavor. (posted 8/20/2002) (Revised 8/22)OKay, I've had a couple of days to fall in love with this bread. It's so tasty and makes fantastic toast. I've been making sandwiches for my husband's lunch with it, and he thinks it's the best bread I've ever made. Thanks for a great recipe!

      This was really good...I couldn't stop eating it even after I was full! I have been wanting to try it for awhile b/c I often have leftover pintos when I make them for my family & for the shear fact that it is an interesting sounding recipe. Like another reviewer anytime I mentioned "Pinto bean bread" I got snurled noses. Finally, I tried it & waited to tell the fam what was in it. So glad I did! The bread does not taste like pintos (even though I season mine...which I was a little worried about). It tastes like a light, yummy, homemade bread...similar to yeast bread w/o the strong "yeasty"-taste. The only change I made was I let the bread rise in the pans before baking (for a total of 3 rises). I got one good-sz loaf, one smaller loaf, & 6 rolls I plan to use for hamburgers tonight. Thank you for an interesting and yummy recipe!
