This soft and fluffy Fig and Walnut Bread is the perfect recipe to bring to a holiday gathering or keep on hand for an everyday bread. Studded with chunks of walnuts and mission figs with warming cardamom notes.
I am a big bread fan..like a BIG bread fan. I always want to be in charge of making the freshly baked bread for thanksgiving and being responsible for making the house smell like freshly baked bread…because everyone will love you even more for that.
However, this holiday season I wanted to create a bread that isn’t your traditional roll. It’s slightl y sweet, perfectly nutty, and spiced to perfection. I’m most likely going to be making this bread almost every week because I can’t get enough of it.
Unlike your traditional bread, this one requires no kneading or yeast. It simply uses just baking powder and a bit of baking soda. Making it a quick and easy bread to prepare, taking less than 1 hour to make.
This is Fig and Walnut No-Knead Bread is a great everyday bread and I love to pair it with:
- Almond buter
This recipe is…
- Refined sugar-free
- Perfect for the holiday season
- Perfect for an everyday bread
- 100% plant-based
