When I decided to stop eating grains, I was just not ready to give up bread! This is more of a loaf but it toasts beautifully and can be spread with whatever you like! Peanut butter and jam, strawberry cream cheese, plain old butter (if you eat butter!); the possibilities are endless! Try it and you may decide that grain free living is not as tortuous as it sounds!

The Mad Radish says: Since I only eat this one slice at a time and am the only one in the house who eats it, I freeze each slice individually to keep it fresh and then toast it right from frozen or let it thaw first!
The Snobby Wasabi says: I don’t know about this… I am going to call this the “no bread” bread. It’s like capri pants; the “no pants” pants.
