I had a reader email me and request a grain-free challah recipe to make for Easter dinner. Challah is simply bread enriched with eggs, oil, and sugar, and braided into a crusty loaf. Never one to pass up a paleo bread challenge, I set to work!
The loaf turned out totally yummy; beautifully brown and crusty on the outside and soft within. It’s so good, I may even make it for our own Easter Sunday dinner!
This loaf is also nut, coconut, dairy, and yeast free, so most of my family can eat it. My sister, who can’t eat dairy or coconut, loved that she could enjoy this bread, and scarfed a few pieces as soon as I was done taking pictures of it!
This bread is wonderful served with butter or some fruit-sweetened jam!
