Black turtle bean bread


Being gluten, wheat, barely, rye, oat and sugar and dairy free, I’m often looking for different tastes and textures. Every now and again I really want bread. Not bleached, tasteless cardboard packaged as gluten free, or fancy schmancy rye or spelt breads that I can’t tolerate either. I saw a recipe online for a legume bread recipe and played around with it. And the results weren’t bad for a first timer. I’ve perfected the recipe, and get a better consistency when I leave it in the pan a bit longer to cool. 

My second attempt was easier to toast and it froze really well for me to package and take with me on recent travels.
