“I Can’t Believe It’s Gluten-Free” Bread

slice of bread with tomatoes and avocados

A note from Chef Ivan:

I recently started​ a new nutrition plan and I need to reduce my wheat intake. This is a recipe that I learned in a plant-based baking class, but with a few healthy twists. Y​o​u can enjoy this bread for breakfast or even as a healthy snack as it’s full of good fats and healthy protein. Cut a slice, spread some hummus, vegan cheese spread, or you can make it sweet with options like PB & J hazelnut butter with chocolate, banana, and maple syrup. The possibilities are endless! Try a slice; I can guarantee it’ll leave you saying, “I can’t believe it’s gluten-free!”
