Ezekiel Bread

Have you ever heard of Ezekiel bread? I haven’t ever heard of it until my daughter came in this past weekend carrying in a loaf for us to try. She found it at Trader Joes ( I think or some kind of health food store). It suppose to be low carb (no flour) and full of health benefits.

Its called “Ezekiel” bread because the recipe can actually be found in the Bible. 

 “Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread.
Ezekiel 4:9

We have already finished the whole loaf off by making several sandwiches for our lunches and I used it one morning for toast. The texture felt dry and stale to the touch but it tasted absolutely delicious. It was great knowing I was eating bread without carbs. 

I am not a health food geek or organic food eater but if I can find food that was made like back in the Bible day, it’s got to be healthy. Wouldn’t you think? 
I kept calling it “Jesus” bread all weekend while my daughter kept correcting me.  

For those that know me, you know that I'm thinking now about making some of my own. 

Has anyone else ever heard of this bread?


  1. Hi Lisa, yes I have tried this bread from TJ’s on many occasions and we love it too!!

  2. We have been eating “Jesus bread” for years. We have to drive to Birmingham to buy ours. We buy several loaves at a time. I’m sure your daughter told you to store in in the fridge. It has no preservatives.

    1. I did not know this! I found some at Harris Teeter this weekend in the freezer section. Now I know!

  3. Did you look at the nutrition label? It does have carbs. It is made with sprouted grain.

    15g per slice.

    1. Thanks for pointing that out to me. I have revised the post. But hey, its still good!!

  4. nothing to do with low carbs as beans and all kinds of grains are high in carbs.. but for sure it is healthy!!!
