Bannock is a bread used primarily by the North American First Nations People. I got this recipe during a 3 day field trip with my daughter's grade 7 class (many, many moons ago!!!). Not knowing what bannock was, we were making up this awful glue mess and cooking it over the fire, like the natives used to do. It wasn't until way into the day that I realized it was like a baking soda biscuit that we managed to get it right, (plus, because of rain, we got to go indoors and use an oven) My bad!!! This recipe is lower in fat and calories because it is not fried up like the traditional way. I have been using this recipe for many years since...and doing it the proper way!!!
