Healthy breakfast is not only about eating eggs and fruits every day. With lots of fitness substitutes around you, you can still enjoy breakfast just like your past days without cheating on your primal diet. Speaking of popular breakfast, breads have always played an important role in breakfast menus. But why stick to the regular, bland ones when you can bake a loaf of moist, spicy bread made of almond flour.


Cinnamon raisin bread is the first choice of Drilldoggy in this case. This cinnamon-laced bread, studded with raisins has enough sweetness to not require honey or sugary jam to go with it, yet subtle enough to pair with fruits. The heart-warming flavor of the cinnamon complements the sweetness of the raisins and makes your kitchen smell heavenly as the bread bakes. You can consider adding your favorite nuts into the bread too!


So whether you have them toasted and slathered with grass-fed butter or fry them into French toast, this healthy version of bread will prove to be your ideal ‘go-to’ breakfast.
