Once again, here is an AIP version of one of my previously published recipe the olive fougasse bread.

This delicious and super easy to make fougasse bread can either be cut into little pieces and served with toothpicks as an appetizer at a party or served with some lettuce (2-4 servings) as a starter. Or you can even have this for breakfast.

This recipe has a taste of summer in the Southern France region called Provence with its signature herbs. Enjoy!

  1. Delicious! I swapped almond meal instead of the tigernut flour because it’s what I had on hand. Also, my son doesn’t eat olives (!) so I put them only on my half; I added 1/2 a small onion thinly sliced to make up for his part having no olives. It was a tasty bread that I will make again. Very nice with a strong cup of dandelion/chicory coffee for breakfast. Thanks, Bea!
