Paleo Cinnamon Almond Loaf

I love the smell of Paleo Cinnamon Almond Loaf in the morning!

I wanted to create a cinnamon spiced bread that I could use to make paleo French Toast with and this is what I dreamed up. Subtly spiced with a hint of sweetness from raw honey, this loaf is delicious for breakfast spread with coconut butter or a little extra honey. Top it with smashed banana and you have a delicious snack.My Paleo Cinnamon Almond Loaf is grain free, gluten free, dairy free and cane sugar free, making it a wonderful treat at any time of day. This spiced bread loaf isn’t very sweet, which I like, so if you want a sweeter version you can add your own sweet toppings to it. It is beautiful warm from the oven and equally as good cold. Slice it up into thick slices and enjoy any time of day, at home with a cuppa or on the run when you’re busy out and about.

My favourite way to eat my Paleo Cinnamon Almond Loaf is by using it to make Paleo French Toast. Stay tuned for this amazing recipe. It is so delicious. It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed French Toast the traditional way, so I love that I’m able to recreate this recipe in a way my body loves. I promise I’ll be posting this one soon. Until then, I hope you enjoy my Paleo Cinnamon Almond Loaf all on its own.
