This bread freezes beautifully. After baking and cooling, I slice each loaf into 1/2 inch slizes and freeze individually in ziploc snack bags. Every morning, I toast a slice and slather it with peanut butter. No hunger all day. Minus the splenda and replace with honey....this bread proves God's knowledge and love of the human body. Thank you for the receipe! It's worth the time and effort.
