This was pretty good considering it is not bread. I actually threw some cinnamon in it and it wasn't half bad. Good substitute for bread and a tasty snack.

I used organic ground flax meal. This bread is a GREAT substitute! I made it the other night to go with a crock pot dinner and it really added to the meal. Very filling, too.

Very nice substitute! I too, was thinking it would be nice with some cinnamon in it... maybe with some light cream cheese? :) Thanks for the recipe!
