Recipe Notes

I like to use this bread for almond butter and jelly sandwiches.

It also works well for turkey sandwiches, or used as a breakfast biscuit with sausage and egg.

I have not tested this recipe with flax seed yet, but assume you can use 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seed in place of chia seed.
