This is a whole wheat communion bread recipe that our kids used to love out of the freezer in the summer.This is also authentic to the early centuries, if you use olive oil in place of the veggie oil and goats milk, as the staple bread of the times.

Delicious! I cut it into squares and they tasted like wheat thins. I subbed canola oil for the soybean oil. I sprinkled a few with raw sugar before baking, but we didn't really care for it.

Followed the directions exactly except for subbing the olive oil and goats milk. Very easy recipe. Nice soft texture and taste. Next time will shape into more sandwich friendly pieces. Thanks for posting!

I love this recipe. Been making it for a few years now and it is always moist and delicious. I've done directly as the recipe and subbed in olive oil and goats milk and both ways it is excellent. My kids love to spread peanut butter on it for a snack. It is dense and filling.
