Having a healthy gluten-free skillet cherry breakfast bread is a way to go when we are too busy to prepare breakfast. The country-style skillet bread makes for a delicious snack or with added cream or yogurt serve it for brunch. If I had to describe this bread, I would say, every bite tastes like a lightly spiced muffin with cinnamon, with a slight lemony flavour and every bite, is packed with cherries.

I wanted to keep this recipe healthy-ish, so I used olive oil for fats a little coconut sugar as a sweetener. For the flours, I used a rice, sweet sorghum, arrowroot and fiber packed buckwheat flour. This recipe is also dairy-free for those who are lactose intolerant. The healthy cherry breakfast bread is beyond delicious. A must try recipe.
