Delish post-workout, for breakfast on-the-go, a mid-morning snack (coffee optional, but highly recommended ;) ) or anytime, this healthier bread is made with almond flour - a lower in carb, higher in good fat alternative to regular flour - and freezes well. Enjoy a slice warm out of the oven then slice the rest of the loaf, wrap and freeze in individual servings for easy grab n’ go. Throw a frozen slice in your lunch bag, purse/briefcase or just on the counter, and it’ll be defrosted in no time! Warm it up in the toaster or under the broiler, even add a smear of your favorite nut butter. Or, try it grilled in a cast iron skillet with a little grass-fed butter or coconut oil.
