Almond Butter Bread

1 cup almond butter
4 large eggs 
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup honey (though I like to use only 1/4 cup)

Mix till creamy, not lumpy. Cook in oven 350 degrees for 25-45 minutes until done. Poke the middle to see if it bounces back or stick with tooth pick should be clean! Enjoy!

I have tried this in a loaf pan and in these small circle pans. I like the small circle pans better because it came out moister. They cool much faster too. Check it at 15 minutes with the toothpick and you may need a few minutes more. The loaf takes much longer!
