The recipe for Saint John's Bread was brought to Minnesota by pioneering monks from Bavaria more than 150 years ago. Adapted slightly to use readily available ingredients, the bread continues to be made with locally milled flour.
The tradition of sharing bread with visitors is a staple of St. John's Benedictine hospitality. Throughout the years, Saint John's Bread has played a central role in the diet of monks and students at Saint John's and has delighted thousands of guests with its unique flavor and hearty texture.
Proceeds from the sale of Saint John's Bread are used to support the programs of Saint John's Abbey, University and Preparatory School. We hope you enjoy the company of friends and family as you experience the taste of history!
