1 tablespoon active dry yeast
2 teaspoons brown sugar, divided
2 cups barley flour
1 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup garbanzo bean flour

Place yeast in a small bowl with 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar and 1/2 cup warm water.
Put in a warm place to proof.
Put remaining 1/2 cup warm water into a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup of barley
flour and mix vigorously. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar, oil and salt;
mix well. Add softened yeast mixture and beat briskly, then add bean flour and enough
remaining barley flour to make dough that can be kneaded.
