Notes

*I’ve tested this recipe with two different brands of cassava flour—both with great results. Otto’s Naturals cassava flour creates a more dense loaf while Terrasoul cassava flour creates a lighter, more fluffy loaf.
I have not tested this recipe with any other brands’ cassava flour or tried substituting different flours so I cannot guarantee results. If you try something different, be sure to comment below and let me know how it works!
