Walnut Bread
Author: 
Recipe type: Bread
 
This nutty, dense bread is delicious toasted and spread with your favorite nut butter or plain and dipped into our warming Immune Boosting Soup. The anti-inflammatory properties in walnuts promote healthy bones and cardio vascular system. This bread is suitable for those avoiding wheat and dairy and can last in your bread bin for up to 5 days (although I doubt there will be any left to store)!
