Preparation

These Ezekiel bread rolls are made from a healthful, whole grain vegan recipe that captures the flavor (hopefully) of the ancient bread that God had Ezekiel make. Use the Ezekiel bread rolls for sandwiches or just to eat with a salad or any other meal. Ezekiel bread slices are also great toasted for breakfast.

Add the ingredients, with the exception of the sesame seeds, soya lecithin, molasses, and the water, to a mixing bowl or to the bread maker container. Once the dry ingredients have been added, hollow out the center of the flour slightly and place the other ingredients in the depression. (NOTE: If you fresh grind the grain, and the flour is warm, do not preheat the water.) Mix and kneed the mixture adding water as necessary.  The total kneading time should be approximately 20 minutes.

When the dough have been thoroughly kneades, place a thin layer of sesame seeds on a bread board or clean counter top.  Place the dough on the sesame seeds and form into a cylinder about 1/3 m. (12") long.  Cut into twelve pieces and making sure that the entire surface, including the cut ends are coated with the sesame seeds.  Place the round circles of the dough on the bread pan, leaving a little space between them for expansion.

Baking:

Set the warming drawer of your oven to low, or the oven to warm setting 45C (120F).  Be careful that the oven does not overheat.  Place the Ezekiel bread roll pan in the warming drawer or oven to raise to dough.   When the dough is slightly over double the size, turn the oven heat up to 175-180C (350-360F). 

Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes.  When the crust is firm, but not crispy, the Ezekiel bread rolls are done.  Remove the baking pans from the oven.  The seeds should keep the rolls from sticking to the pan, though the rolls may need a little help from a spatula.  Let cool on a wire rack. 

Enjoy!

They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
