Nut Butter Bread
1 cup nut butter (or seed butter)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 T vinegar or lemon juice
Combine all ingredients except for the vinegar and mix well (this usually requires an electric mixer for me). Add the vinegar or lemon juice and mix well, then pour into a greased loaf pan.
Bake about 40 minutes in a 350 degree oven. It is done when a knife or toothpick comes out clean.
For a sweet bread, increase the honey to 1/3 or 1/2 cup and add cinnamon and whatever other spices you like, such as nutmeg or ground cloves. Adding more honey will extend the baking time so keep an eye on this.
To make it savory, reduce or omit the honey, and add a little more salt as well as crushed garlic, onion powder (if it is SCD-legal), and other savory spices such as thyme.
