How to make it

  • Soak wheat berries in cool water for 8 hours. Drain, rinse and drain again.
  • Put the wheat berries in a sprouting container (a jar covered with mesh or pantyhose works) and place it in a cabinet or closet out of sunlight.
  • Rinse your wheat berries and drain them thoroughly every 8 hours for 2 days.
  • Bring a small pot of water to a boil.
  • Add sprouts, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Drain.
  • Transfer sprouts to a blender or small food processor and puree almost smooth (you won't get a perfect puree - trust me!). Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix wheat berry puree, brown sugar, mashed bananas, applesauce, oil and vanilla.
  • Add to the dry ingredients, stirring until just blended.
  • Bake for 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan 10 minutes before turning out to cool completely.
