No grains on the Whole 30. No bloody grains.
That means my standard breakfast options are ALL out the window. My typical breakfast options include oats, sprouted grain English muffins with almond butter, hemp seed energy balls, etc. You name it, it has grains in it. –>sad trombone<–
What this does do though, is forces me out of my comfortable routine and opens my world to new things I may have never tried. Like this Cinnamon Raisin Flax Bread.
I’ve made a similar flax bread recipe with rosemary that was more on the savoury side, like a focaccia bread. This one is perfect for those Whole 30 Sunday mornings. Toasted up nice and smothered with your homemade coconut butter. <— You have made that, right? Good. 😉
The lovely thing about this flax bread is how super easy it is to make.
Stir, spread, bake, done. Easy peasy.It stores well also. I wrapped the pieces in a large Ziploc and kept them in the fridge.
In the mornings I’ve been slicing a piece in half lengthwise and toasting ‘er up. A few times, I lived on the edge and tossed some extra raisins on top for an added treat. Love.
Looks like bread, doesn’t it? And I did mention the coconut butter, right? Good. 😉 Because it will make your weekend.
