Gluten Free Chestnut Bread Recipe

Fall is here and finally this gluten free chestnut bread recipe can get out from the drawer. Its an unforgettable, exquisite low carb dessert recipe.

Leaves are falling down, dressing the countryside with their pretty colors. Chestnut is one of the best known symbols of the season for a long time.
Conkers give their spiky forms for the scene while chestnuts contribute with their flavor, scent for this time of year. Chestnut could also be used, cooked or fried but we can work with it as chestnut flour.

This Chestnut bread should be among everybody’s fall recipe collection. Its unforgettable, exquisite and it’s a low carb dessert recipe. The best thing in seasonal recipes that are not using the same stuff we are made to use all year around. This almost instantly makes them healthy and if we skip the sugar bit or substitute it with something else then it’s gonna be a perfect healthy low carb recipe. Actually we could call it a gluten free banana bread or low carb banana bread too but that wouldn’t make it a fall recipe. 🙂
