Shop-bought bread is often full of ingredients you wouldn’t expect, such as preservatives, emulsifiers and treatment agents. For that reason – and the amazing taste and smell of freshly baked bread! – it’s always better to make your own.
Made with almond flour and sesame flour, this high-protein bread recipe is also low in carbohydrates (at just 1.5g a slice!) and wheat free making it a great option for keto and gluten free diets. Some homemade breads don’t have the stability of shop-bought but this recipe holds up in sandwiches, in the toaster and works with a range of toppings.
