Cinnamon Date Bread
3 C soft wheat, sprouted 1 day
1 C dates
1 t cinnamon
1/2 C raisins
Process wheat and dates in a champion juicer using the solid plate. Add cinnamon and raisins to the mixture and mix well. Form into 4 loaves of bread, place on a teflex sheet in the dehydrator at 105 degrees for 5-6 hours, remove teflex sheets and turn bread over, continue dehydrating for 5-6 hours, or until desired moisture is obtained.

I don't have a champion juicer. is there an alternate way to do this with a vita-mix or food processor?

this looks similar to Alissa's cinnamon raisin bread I just made. How long do you think it will keep for in the fridge? I found mine too sweet and I will probably crumble it up and eat it as cereal.

are the ingredients the same? i lent Alissa'a book out last week and boy, have I been missing it! does Alissa's recipe use sprouted wheat? i haven't tried hers yet.

When you use sprouted wheat, do you notice a bitter taste to the bread?

this will be my first time using sprouted wheat to make bread. although, i have made alissa's cannolli's with the sprouted wheat and they were not bitter. i may just try to make the bread with;
ground golden flax

ok, my health food store only has "pearled" barley. is this raw? it says on the package that it has gone thru a refining process! i hope that it will sprout!

I was curious about the pearled barley too and found this information. It sounds to me like it isn't raw? Not sure if it will sprout or not, do let us know!
"Only buy barley in it's whole form if you want to sprout it and eat it as barley grass. Processors use an abrasive machine to remove the hull. At this stage its called hulled or pot barley. In this processed form, the germ has been damaged to the point that it will no longer sprout. Pearled barley, which is hulled barley with the ends of the kernel removed so its round in shape is another popular way you can get barley. Pearled barley has its germ and much of the bran around the endosperm removed. This is where many of the vitamins and minerals are found and because of this, its nutritional qualities are down about 25%-33% from what you generally find in hulled barley."

Pearled barley does not sprout. You need to buy the 'hulled' barley for sprouting.
