Good For

The SCD aims to re-balance the gut flora, reduce inflammation and help heal the gut lining, through the avoidance of ‘specific carbohydrates’ that are more difficult to digest.

You’ll need a food processor or blender to grind the pecan nuts to form a flour-like consistency.

The bread is best served warm or toasted, spread with a little coconut oil or nut butter.
