This bread is fluffy with a slightly sweet and nutty flavor and uses no refined flours or grains — making it perfect for those following the paleo diet or who just want some great homemade gluten-free bread.

One tip before we get to the recipe, though: It's recommended that you use the 7.5 x 3.5-inch loaf pan or your bread will not be the proper height. It's very important to use the recommended size pan in this recipe so that it rises properly.
