People have been making bread for thousands of years. In fact, there is evidence of people making bread as far back as 30,000 years ago. Unfortunately, prehistoric men didn’t write down their bread recipes on clay tablets. However, we have a good idea of what those recipes were.
According to scientists, people used to mix together wild wheat and root vegetables such as sweet potatoes, then they would either fry it or bake it.

- 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
- 1 cup of sprouted wheat flour.
- 1 cup of sweet potatoes (boiled and mashed up).
- 2 tablespoons of oil (for frying.)
- Mix together the salt, flour, and sweet potatoes until the dough isn’t sticky (add more flour if needed).
- Shape the dough into a log and cut it into 5 to 10 pieces, depending on what size pieces you want.
- Form the pieces into balls and flatten them out with a rolling pin.
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
