Quick and easy breakfast bread

When I tried this Elana’s Pantry recipe for breakfast bread, I thought I’d end up with a hockey puck in a pan.

No way, I thought, could bread made largely of almond butter and eggs be anything but heavy. But I was curious, and I was rewarded: What came out of the oven was airy and gently sweet. I’ve eaten a couple pieces with my daily smoothie ever since; it’s the perfect light breakfast.

Even better, the bread is a snap to make. It takes only a few minutes to whip up the batter, and 15 more to bake. And it’s gluten-free, if grains are a concern for you.

A couple quick notes: The recipe says to use a hand blender to mix the ingredients, but I found that unnecessary – a mixing spoon did the job just fine. I also left out the stevia; the bread was sweet enough for me with just the honey.
