    We made this for breakfast. Perfect!! Hearty, moist, and tasty. I added an extra bannana and a handful of quinoa flour . I love that it's low in fat, high in protein, and has no sugar. Everyone loves it!  -  03 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very moist; great bread! I used almond meal instead of almond flour and honey instead of agave. I have tried other grain free/paleo breads, but this one is much more moist and flavorful. I did have to cook mine about 50 minutes. Will definitely make again!  -  30 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I customized this recipe a bit to make it more kid-friendly. I used 1cup almond meal and 1 cup baking flour and then added a streusel topping (2 Tbl softened butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2Tbl rolled oats, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon). It was delicious!  -  25 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
