Raw Sweet Breads

Over the past several months I have not had a lot of time to post new recipes or write reviews. However, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy making goodies in the kitchen when I can. I hope to start adding more recipes over the next few months. It may not be on a scheduled basis, but please do stay tuned for more yummies to come!

Not too long ago I came across a raw food blog from overseas that had a terrific and simple recipe for raw almond bread using the pulp from nut mylk. I was pleasantly surprised at the incredible texture of the bread that I began experimenting with a variety of sweet and dense breads using this base recipe. I’m sorry, but I can not recall the name of the blog. If I ever do I will update this post accordingly, but for now please accept my apology. I couldn’t pass up sharing the base recipe, and sharing my experimental add-ins. Please enjoy these delicious raw breads!!!
