<–This might be how I feel.

What’s more, it’s all in the safe realm of no gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, or other treacherously mind-blowingly stomach-aching ingredients for the Bubble Child-est of us.

    1. Thank you so for alerting me of this error! It is true that, yes, honey comes from bees and is therefore not vegan. I would recommend using agave nectar to still produce the bread and have it vegan. Add about 1 tbs. less than honey, as it has a higher sweetness density normally. Again, thanks, and enjoy the bread if you do end up making it!
