- 2 1/2 Cups Almond Flour

- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon + 2 Teaspoons
- 1/2 Cup Erythritol
- 1/2 Cup Hot Water

- Pour half the batter into a 8″ greased bread pan.

- Pour the rest of the batter into the pan.
- Using a knife, swirl the batter around to create a pattern with the cinnamon.

- If you’d like to cut some carbs, try using less erythritol. You can also leave out the nuts!
- Certain brands of psyllium husk can turn breads blue-ish purple — I use NOW psyllium husk and don’t have this problem!
