Basic Nut Butter Bread (Grain-Free)
As promised, this month here at GastroChef.org we will be having a month-long of breads! Delicious breads free of grains, sugar and gluten! Just because you follow a diet that excludes bread doesn’t mean there isn’t a way around it!
This week I haven chosen to start things off simple with basic nut butter bread. There are several variations to a nut butter bread, I have found this one to produce the best results. This loaf not only holds well but can also be used as sandwich bread, grilled for Panini’s or even for french toast!
One ingredient in this bread which may confuse you is apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
This versatile vinegar has many uses and a plethora of health benefits, from weight loss to helping with acne. In baking a little bit of this vinegar helps bread rise and can add luster to a crust when brushed on top. In desserts you can enhance the flavours, as salt does, while reducing excessive sweetness with a teaspoon. The list goes on and on. The addition of it to this recipe eliminates the need for salt so don’t feel the need to add any!
I hope you enjoy this basic bread! Next week we will be presenting a savoury rosemary and sun-dried tomato dinner bread.
