I’m forbidden from making this bread again for the next month because we’ve eaten 2 loaves in under a week. This yummy bread is gluten-free crack—so addictive. Kula Baby started running into the kitchen every day and pointing to the bread, demanding his fix. You know it’s good when the whole family loves it.
This recipe is adapted from a recipe by Linda Clark, MA, CNC. Linda is an amazing nutritionist, professor, speaker extraordinaire. If you’re nutritionally broken, she will fix you. I guarantee it. She owns a holistic nutrition and wellness practice, Universal Wellness Associates, in Fair Oaks, CA. I was lucky enough to study under Linda in graduate school, where I learned big words like; gluten, adrenals, and FOOD ALLERGIES 🙂
