Bread Machine Recipe: Almond Flour Bread with Fennel 0

Bread machines are pretty neat. They make the process of bread making very simple and easy. It’s minimal preparation, little attention required, and very easy clean up. I do enjoy baking with the oven, but when time is limited, bread machines are wonderful alternative. Here’s a recipe for a bread made with almond flour. There’s no yeast in the bread, so it’s more of a dense bread rather than a fluffy, rising bread. I added some fennel seeds for flavor, but other seeds and nuts would make a nice addition as well. Enjoy!
