GAPS Nutbutter bread

When our family of six first undertook the Intro part of the GAPS Protocol, learning new food preparation took a lion’s share of time.

Being the forward thinking, future mother-in-law that I am, I employed my oldest son as much as possible in food prep (speaking of which, he is making lemon poppy-seed muffins as I write this).

Reaching Stage 4 was exciting for all, and my son rose to the occasion by creating our first nut butter bread. This recipe is a basic rendition of that first nut butter bread, dubbed Cade’s Bread. The pictured bread is in a flat round pan, but it just as easily adapts to small loaf pans for slicing. It’s a pure treat with ghee and honey. Enjoy!
