Sundried Tomato, Basil & Feta Loaf
Nothing is more satisfying than bread lets be honest, no mater what type of day or mood you are in bread is always a desirable option. Sometimes with healthy breads, they can be very dense with ground almonds and never produce that light fluffy texture of “real bread” or fake bread-what it actually is. This bread has a great texture, easy to make, and doesn’t fall apart. Its consistency is very similar to a proper slice of bread. I have made my loaf a sundered tomato, feta & basil loaf, but get creative and swap around for your favourite flavours, and if avoiding cheese try nutritional yeast as an alternative it gives a nice cheesy taste.
**Great with some coconut oil spread on top or ripe avocado!
