Grain-free Bread Recipe – Ready to go!

November 5, 2012


Exciting test kitchen day!  I still offer the Gluten-free Cranberry Nut Artisan Bread, but now I have a great, entirely grain-free bread that’s perfect for sandwiches and suitable for diabetic dietary needs.  This one turned out moist and delicious!  It’s 8g. Protein per bun and only 10 carbs vs. the 41 carbs of a normal wheat sub.  Next time you need some buns for wheat-free or diabetic friends and family to eat at your function, I can offer these delicious buns.  Good luck keeping the wheat-eaters away from them!
