Yogic Recipes: Homemade Nut Bread

This easy homemade ‘grain-free’ bread recipe is delicious and super nutritious. It is incredibly versatile, and once you get in the swing of making this bread, you may try a range of different options: use a combination of various nuts, seeds, or us sweet potato or buckwheat flour instead of ground almonds. For a vegan option omit the eggs and replace with a flax egg (see note at bottom). Enjoy!
