Cinnamon Pecan Bread

This low-carb, sugar- free (is that redundant?) bread came out better than I could have hoped. A lot of people miss bread, pasta, baked goods, etc. when they switch to a low-carb diet. I can tell you honestly that with recipe adaptations like these there really isn’t much that I miss or crave. Once you get used to the richer, natural flavors from whole foods, processed goodies that you used to love suddenly seem to have about as much taste as the packaging they come in.

This Cinnamon Pecan Bread tastes even better after 15-20 seconds in the microwave. I topped it with half a tablespoon of cream cheese to go with breakfast every day for about a week. It also makes a great snack to go with a cup of coffee at any time of day. To store it, wrap the loaf in a paper towel and place inside of a gallon Ziploc bag. Store it in the fridge and it keeps for up to one week.
