I’ve tried some Manna Bread in the past from Manna Organics, like the Cinnamon Date and Carrot Raisin varieties , and I think they are quite unlike any bread I have ever eaten. On the package, it says it is “Free from Added Sweeteners, Salt, Yeast or Oil”.
So, I took this loaf out of the freezer and let it thaw in the refrigerator. A dense, thick bread, with a brown color. It had little specks thorugh out, which I assume to be the millet. I decided to try it two ways- plain, and with some maple syrup on it (honestly, what DOESN’T taste good with maple syrup on it!?! =P)
Plain, I found it to have a rather grainy texture, that was bumpy and chewy. It was also soft, and had a nutty flavor. It was really kind of bland by itself, so I moved on to the piece with the maple syrup.
The maple syrup covered piece was delicious! It soaked up the maple syrup quite well. It was chewy and sweet, and had a unique flavor. Pretty good!
Overall, a unique bread, but not my favorite. I felt it needed something sweet on it, which was why the maple syrup was perfect. I do like that this was organic, and was “100% sprouted whole grain” according to the package. 2 1/2 stars.

Have you ever tried any foods made with millet? Or millet on it’s own? I think it was my first time trying millet, I’m curious to see how else it could be eaten or prepared!
I was given this bread to try for free from Manna Organics.
