One of the hardest parts of following a gluten-free diet is giving up those fluffy, crisp loaves of bread. As a kid, my dad would spread his mouthwatery peach jam over those warm, golden slices of bread for breakfast.

Unfortunately, wheat bread is no good for a gluten-free body, so I created this recipe, that is gluten-free and still delicious. Its hint of herbs and olive oil match with the fresh aroma of the apples and basil I like to savor it with, brings me back to my Italy… I eat it and can almost hear the crickets singing!
