Recipe by Madeleine Ignon
One of my more satisfying morning rituals is baking a loaf of some kind of quick bread. I love bread, and I love to make it, but sometimes the labor and wait time involved in making real yeast bread requires too much patience and too many steps. This is one that I found when searching for things I could make with fresh almond butter. It’s a great way to get a healthy (gluten-free) bread fix in a matter of 40 minutes.
