Yep, I went there, and I’m not going back.

I honestly was not expecting this batch (i.e., my first batch) to taste this dang good! Don’t you love it when you nail something on the first go-round? One day over the weekend, I just had an itch to bake, but me being lazy, I had no desire to follow someone else’s directions (might be my aversion to being told what to do…working on that haha!).

So I just threw in a few things that I thought would go together, hoping they worked out! It was my first time baking with a tea too, and I have to say, I was really pleasantly surprised. Teaonic is one of my favorite tea brands- all organic with the best sourced ingredients (and comes in glass bottles which are easily recyclable!).

The flavor I used was the Hair & Nails tea blend, but feel free to use any of their elixirs! They’re so delicious, caffeine-free, and are steeped with only organic herbs (no sweeteners, additives, or stabilizers!).

What else is in this bread, you ask?

Organic Almond Flour

Organic Free-Range Eggs

Organic Coconut Oil

Marine Collagen (I love Vital Proteins for my collagen! They also have a great beef collagen)

Organic Grade A Maple Syrup

Organic Vanilla Bean

A Pinch of Baking Soda

Pretty decent, huh? Give it a try, and let me know what you think! Feel free to tag me and use the hashtag #iyamlove 🙂

Happy Baking!
