If you typically avoid bread because you can’t (or don’t want to) eat gluten, or because you don’t like the fact that it’s typically refined, or because you’d rather eat something homemade, then I have the solution for you! My homemade Cinna-Raisin Bread is not only gluten free, high in protein, without refined flours… it also has only eight grams of carbohydrates per slice! This bread is a great breakfast treat toasted with a little nut butter, it’s great for a sandwich with your favorite filling, and it’s even perfect on its own for a grab-n-go snack.
