Healthy Holiday Recipe Series

I decided to share with you some of the healthy recipes that are a perfect, and perfectly delicious, addition to your traditional fall recipe stash. I’m sharing them with you in my Healthy Holiday Recipe Series. Today’s recipe is drizzed with coconut butter glaze…say no more!

One of the things on my to-do list is neighbor gifts. I have a wonderful family in my neighborhood who is entirely gluten-free. I always feel like I am neglecting them when I prepare loaves of bread for the holidays. Finally, with this recipe, I can include them! The bonus to this recipe is that I don’t have to make two different kinds of bread–this one is so good, my GF neighbors and non-GF neighbors will both enjoy it!
