      While this is a good bread, it really is just a standard tasting multi-grain bread. Squaw bread, as I know it growing up in California, is a much darker, sweeter, richer-tasting bread. This doesn't taste like squaw bread that I've ever known.

      Delicious! I halved the ingredients and made 2 round loaves of bread. This was easy to make with lots of healthy ingredients. It also makes great toast. My family loved it, thank you for sharing.
