Gluten-free bread doesn’t have to be an oxymoron. This adventure bread is packed full of seeds, nuts and dried fruits, making it not only the perfect way to fuel your next adventure but also a super tasty treat for the holidays when you might also need a little extra fuel. Foods like this that are on the low-glycemic index are sure to sustain you no matter where you’re headed. It also makes a lovely gift for the gluten-free adventurers in your life.
Keep an eye on this in the oven. It won’t rise like a normal bread, but it could burn if you aren’t checking regularly. Also, make sure it’s completely cooled before you slice it, because it's more likely to crumble than most breads.
