Paleo Grain-Free Gluten-Free Bread Recipe

The perfect grain-free substitute for the delicious bread-sized hole in your heart!  This is a great alternative to commercial bread as it made from whole food items and is packed with protein and fibre.  Toast it, have it fresh with melted butter, top it with anything your heart desires, or eat it on its own!  The convenience of bread without the unwanted side effects...  It's a beautiful cake-ish, chewy texture, similar to traditional soda-bread from the Northern hemisphere.
