a recipe for this?

I've been asked to make a particular bread.  I've no idea how to find the recipe.  Here's the description:  it is a dense, possibly unleavened, honey and bran-containing cracker/loaf served about 25-years ago in a parochial school in Seattle, sometimes substituting for standard communion wafers.

Anybody have an idea?

If the bread was used for communion, it would not have honey and definitely would be unleavened.   Only flour and water are allowed.  Here's a link to the Davenport Diocese's publication on Eucharistic bread:

Maybe search for honey/bran/cracker bread?
