Unleavened Communion Bread Recipe

Have you ever wanted to take Communion in the privacy of your home with your family?  Have you ever wanted to make homemade Unleavened Communion Bread for church?  If so, this is the recipe for you.

This Unleavened Communion Bread recipe is really easy to make and taste great.  After we have communion, my kids love eating this bread with honey.  It makes a delicious snack.

Out of all the recipes I have shared on my blog; this Unleavened Communion Bread recipe is the one recipe that I pray will be shared the most.  Around Easter time, people start searching for God.   Easter is a great time to remember Jesus sacrifice on the cross and have Communion.  Please consider sharing this recipe with your friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and more.

I am updating my Unleavened Bread post from a year ago.  I wanted to take some better pictures of this bread to share with you.  Baking unleavened bread is a wonderful activity to do with your family.  You can explain the differences in leavened and unleavened bread.  You could also explain why and how unleavened bread was used in bible times.  Most importantly, you could use this bread to remember that God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins.  I explain all of this in my earlier post if you need a reminder.  You can also see the comments that were left about his Unleavened Communion Bread.  One person said, “It was far to tasty to be Communion bread”.

If you are looking for a way to explain Jesus death to children, try these Resurrection cookies.  Each ingredient represents something Jesus went through.   Kids seal the tomb, the oven, with tape.  In the morning, the cookies are found empty just like Jesus’ grave.

  1. I have never had anything but the little communion crackers at church for communion. Our church does communion once per month. You are so right, there will be lots of new faces at church around Easter but it’s not as many as it used to be.
    I am going to feature this post at next week’s Merry Monday party. Thank you for sharing with us at Merry Monday.

  2. I love that you are sharing this! I make the communion bread for our church. When we started the church my husband wanted something more out of communion than ” a cracker and thimble full of juice” as he put it. It took me a while to find a recipe that was actually unleavened, it’s identical to this one. We love it. Thanks for sharing at Family Fun Friday. Also, wanted to let you know I’m featuring it this week. Just seems appropriate since it’s Good Friday. Happy Easter…a little early.

  3. Hey Diane,
    A lady where we worship always makes our bread for our congregation. We partake of it every Sunday, not just certain Sunday’s. Every week has a first day!
    Hope you are having a good day.

  4. I guess I must be very slow this morning, but I don’t see the actual recipe for the bread.

    I can remember in the fifties when my mother made unleavened bread for church. This was back in the day before it was available for purchase from church supply sources.
    I wish I had watched her make it.

    I’ve noticed that the trend now seems to be to a loaf of bread which is torn into small pieces. The bread seems to have some kind of leavening in it–not the flat type shown in your pictures or like my mother made.

  5. Sounds like a great and wonderful recipe Diane and thank you so much for sharing here with all of us. Will definitely need to try soon for my family and also hoping you are enjoying your weekend now, too :)

    • Janine,

      I truly appreciate you sharing this unleavened bread recipe. I love baking homemade unleavened bread. It reminds me of how people in Jesus time used unleavened bread. People start searching for God more around Easter. I hope this bread may help them in some small way.

      Thanks again for all your support.
      Diane Roark
