Caroline shares a delicious recipe for chocolate bread that makes a wonderful afternoon snack or a special treat to slip into a school lunch. -Kimi
Imagine sinking your teeth into this warm, soft Chocolate Bread! Can you believe it is GAPS, wheat, gluten, dairy, and cane-sugar free bread! You cannot even taste the “healthy-ness” of this heavenly chocolate slice. It sort of reminds me of chocolate cake, but one that you can eat any time of the day! Hip hip hurry for yummy chocolate bread!
The egg whites, baking soda, and apple cider vinegar work together to produce a fluffy and moist bread. Don’t let the batter sit around or else the bread batter will start to sink. This bread takes a bit of time to bake, though it is definitely worth the wait!
Slice this chocolate bread after it has cooled a bit, and generously spread homemade coconut butter on top. Mmmm, now this is going to hit the spot! Enjoy! 🙂
