What’s good about it?

Adding eggs to the gluten free batter helps keep it wonderful moist and fluffy – it is also a great way to add more protein to the breads. You could use brown gluten free bread flour for additional fibre if wished

  2. Place the flour, xanthum gum and baking powder in a food processor and process briefly to combine.  Add the remaining ingredients  including the yeast mixture (except the chocolate chips) and process to form a smooth batter.
