This wonderfully nourishing bread is dense and delicious. It’s gluten-free and grain-free too. Cheese can be omitted to make this a truly Paleo loaf.
Today, as you’re reading this post, Mr Chipconnoisseur and I are driving down the I-5 on the West Coast of the United States headed down to San Diego. While I take this week off, I wanted to introduce you to Sherilyn, whose blog, Wholepromise I’ve been following for over a year now.

What Sherilyn says about this Bread:
This bread has a delicate sweetness thanks to the almond meal and is fantastic toasted as it gets nice and crunchy. It will store well in the fridge for up to five days and is as versatile as any wheat based bread. My favourite topping is with avocado and sundried tomatoes roughly chopped or when I want to keep it simple a dollop of organic butter is superb especially when fresh out of the oven…
Sounds fabulous Sherilyn, I cannot wait to make this when we get back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful recipe and photography with my readers.
