Sweet & Tart Pistachio Golden Raisin (Large Loaf)

Who doesn’t like a little extra texture in their bread? This super simple recipe using our versatile bread mix will have you going back for another slice all. day. long. (maybe share with some friends). Perfect with a cup of tea or to take with you on the trail, this recipe adds an extra punch of flavor with an extra dose of protein. We practiced making this recipe into Little Loafs, they turned out so cute and small (see photos below). This recipe makes one large loaf, or divide into thirds for triple the fun.


* This recipe calls for refrigerating your loaf before baking to let it set, you can skip this step if you’re short on time!
