Easy Healthy & Gluten-Free Honey Coconut Turmeric Bread

 
Honey Coconut Turmeric Bread
 

I will be the first to admit that I am far from chef and don't really enjoy being in the kitchen. Hence why this is my first blog post under the "Recipes" category, but I am trying something new! I actually find it to be quite stressful, unless it's to clean up from the yummy meal my boyfriend cooked, because I am weird and like to clean.  If you also fall into the category of "kitchen avoiders," you may be wondering what I eat and how I maintain a healthy diet so I will add that topic to my list of blog post to share with you....staying inspired to blog more was one of my 2018 intentions! Want to read more? Check out my post, New Year, New Intentions. Maybe I should add cooking to that intention list too...?

Now enough about my kitchen problems and more about this Honey Coconut Turmeric Bread! The past few weeks my body has been craving earthy spices such as turmeric, ginger, cumin, and cayenne. This craving is actually the reason I baked this delicious loaf of bread, which requires minimal ingredients and is super easy to make. Although some may considered this loaf of bread a "sweet treat," it is made with lots of healthy ingredients that fight inflammation, improve gut health, build a stronger immune system, and so forth! Oh and did I mention it's gluten-free?!

Let's get to baking!
