Halfway through the week! How are you doing? The weather has been so warm and absolutely gorgeous here! I am trying to enjoy as much of this beautiful fall as possible! Like always life is just super busy right now, but it’s fall which means there is always time to bake. There is something wonderful about having bread baking on a crisp fall day.
This bread is particularly good because it is made with cashew butter. Cashew butter is freaking delicious. Seriously. Have you had it? I am not sure how it’s possible you have not because nut butters are out of control these days. There are entire grocery sections dedicated to all the varieties of nut butters. They are everywhere…and they are addicting!
Oats, bananas, cashew butter, maple syrup, dark chocolate…doesn’t get much better than that!
This bread is filling, free of gluten and dairy, and just plain yummy!
Have a great rest of your week! Happy baking!
