+ This is bread, but not as we know it! Gluten free and literally packed with good things, it’s a great way to get your daily dose of seeds and nuts. Top generously with avocado or nut butter, or serve slices with soup.
+ Store this loaf in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also slice and freeze it for whenever you need.
