Letter Re: A Recipe for Hunza “No Hunger” Bread


I found the following recipe for Hunza Bread at the You Q&A web site, in Canada. Because this is a very filling “no hunger” recipe, I have found it very useful in losing weight. (Obviously in a survival situation, my goal would be to maintain my body weight, so I would eat a lot more of it.) It is very easy to make.

Hunza Bread Recipe.
4 cups of water
3.5 (three & one half) to 4 pounds of natural buckwheat or millet flour
1.5 (one & one half) cups of olive oil
1.5 (one & one half) cups of natural unrefined sugar
16 ounces of honey
16 ounces of molasses
4 ounces of powdered soya milk (half cup)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking powder (non aluminum)
You may also add apricots, raisins, chopped walnuts, almonds, sliced dates to the above ingredients. Mix ingredients. Grease and lightly flour cooking pan(s). Ideally use baking trays with about 1 inch high sides. Pour batter in pan(s) half an inch thick over the base. Bake at about 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 C.) for 1 hour. After cooking, dry the bread in the oven for two (2) hours at a very low heat – 90 degrees Fahrenheit (50 C). After it is cooled tip out and cut into approximately 2 inch x 2 inch squares. Store it [refrigerated], wrapped in cloth in a container. You may need to repeat the baking depending on the size of your baking pan, and oven, until all the mixture has been used.
