Toast it for breakfast and serve with a side of scrambled eggs. Works great along with a big salad at lunch. Or, for a quick and easy dinner, it makes a great sandwich with organic turkey, avocado, romaine, tomatoes and dijon mustard.
I think this bread would also be delectable as an after dinner treat with a smear of dairy-free butter (I’m very into this Earth Balance’s Vegan Buttery Spread of late) and a dab of jam or honey. If you’re looking for the Earth Balance, I purchase mine at Vitamin Cottage or Whole Foods.

Note: I’ve received several questions about how to store this bread. After baking, I let it sit on the counter overnight to cool, then wrap it in a paper towel, put it into a zip lock plastic bag and refrigerate. Stored this way it keeps for at least a week.
Here’s your Comment Zen for the day:
I eat Paleo/Zone for health and athletic benefits, but typically use your recipes for “treats” that don’t fall off the plan (too far anyway). Thanks for the excellent recipes and info, keep it coming. – Steven
