Have you ever found a recipe for this great bread?

<quoted text>Thanks, Karin...I thought from all the previous postings I'd read that the "Natural Wheat" was definitely being brought back, but I couldn't tell what the status was on all the other recipes.(I never actually received a response to my own contacts with the company.) Well, that IS good news!

I have missed the Healthnut Bread so much and called when it was discontinued back in 2007. I was told that no one really missed it.
Today, I went online to see if it was being made again and called the company. I was again told that no one missed it and that it was not possible to make a bread that was wanted by only few people.(I am paraphrasing.) The rep told me that it was still being made in the midwest where it originated. Is it really the same bread?
My suggestion is to go to Panera's Bakery/Cafe and get their bread or make your own. I am going to make an effort to not buy any more Arnold's brand anything.
Does anyone have a copy of the ingredients of the original HealthNut Bread?

Is there anything out there that's like what it used to be? I've been eating Brownberry Health Nut bread for decades. I'll give the new bread a chance, but I can tell from outside the packaging by a simple squeeze that it isn't anything like the old product.
I can make bread so close to health nut you will not be able to tell the diference.

When I learned Brownberry would be no more, I bought the last 60 loaves I could find and froze 'em. They're now gone. Has anyone found a decent substitute? Something with whole wheat... a loaf with real "heft"... a slice that doesn't fold down when you hold it by an edge? Pleeeeze?
Jim I should send you a loaf of my version of BBO WW bread. One taste and you'll be hooked.

NOTE: I am searching for the ORIGINAL Catherine Clark/Brownberry ovens Natural Wheat Bread recipe...the one which has CRACKED WHEAT as its first ingredient (vs the crushed wheat noted on the Arnold Brand bag). When I find it, I'll spread the word. If any of YOU find it, please do the same. Thank you.
Hello, I am a new bakery products, Product Developer. I develope signature items for large and small bakery manufacturers who have made millions of dollars from my creations. I miss the good ol' taste of BBO Wheat Bread, Health Nut, Raisin Nut, and Bran Bread. So I took upon myself to create my own version of the BBO bread. With wonderful results they are perfect.
If you like I can share, only by sending you a loaf of Natural Wheat Bread. Free! You can spread the word after you try my bread. Just so you know I also have had the pleasure of taking part in developing products for Catherine Clarks BrownberryOvens.

The Brownberry Healthnut seems to be the only relatively firm whole wheat bread available at our (Champaign-Urbana, IL) grocery stores. I am happy with its taste and texture. Recently it seems that they have reduced its size. It measures about 3.25"x3.75". Has anyone else noticed this?

If Arnold has brought back CC Brownberry Healthnut, Natural Wheat breads in 2007' they don't send it to Virginia. It is now 2013. What a loss. Those breads were the bomb! Harvest Breads here I come.

I have been a customer of Brownberry Natural Wheat (Catherine Clark's Original Recipe ) bread for years. I have watched it's slices get thinner and the loaf smaller..... but I still bought it because it was still fairly good. But the last five or six loaves with the first ingredient "cracked wheat" on it have been difficult to eat. Most of the wheat was NOT cracked, not crushed either. The kernels were whole and so hard I damaged some of my crowns on them. What is Arnold doing to a once great product??? They must not want to stay in business. Well, they are going to lose my business .

Hello everyone. Listen I bake the bbo natural whole wheat bread and health nut for myself and family. I use the original recipe from Catherine Clark. I worked for her long ago. What a wonderful person. Her breads are no longer available formulated the way she made the breads. For over 30 years I have not been able to find the original bread. Companies that have bought out bbo over the years have changed her recipes. This happens because compaines cheapen the products to make more money. They have too. Labor and processing cost continues to increase.

Not buying Brownberry bread based on my experience trying to track down Double Protein bread.

I just purchased a loaf of Brownberry Italian bread. I was surprised to see how thick the slices are. I am not fond of the thick slices, so I won't be buying this again. I was Accounting Supervisor for Catherine Clark in the 1960's before I got married & met my husband there
