After my detox, I vowed to give up soy and dairy. However, I have decided to keep eggs in the mix, as I need a good source of protein. This loaf, from Elana’s Pantry, has received a few accommodations. I’ve reduced the almond flour and added in buckwheat since it’s another great slow energy releasing source of carbohydrates. As well, I sometimes have difficulty finding arrowroot powder or starch, so I experimented with a few other starches and found that they all work here.
Buckwheat flour is so healthy for you!
This bread is quite easy to pair with other things. Add in a bit more salt, take away the honey, and you have a more savoury bread. You could top with some sea salt and rosemary to have a great accompaniment to humus or soups. Add in a little more honey and you will have a sweeter bread that goes well with nut butters, jams and other sweet things.
