Paleo Bread

I have had a few requests to share this recipe after I posted a pictureof the sandwich I made for Avery on FB.  I have to admit, the sandwich looked and tasted pretty good.  I often hear that one of the things people miss most is having a sandwich when they switch to eating Paleo.  That was not a big problem for me, I was never much of a sandwich eater, BUT, once in a while it would be a nice treat.

This is the first bread recipe I tried.  The reason I picked this recipe is that it looked pretty easy, and the ingredients were fairly simple.  It also doesnt cook for super long which is nice too.  The first time I made it I made a single batch, so the loaf was quite small (I didn't have the size pan recommended).  The scond time I made it I made a double batch and got a nice sized loaf of bread.  I also forgot to add the baking soda, and I added it when the mix was in the pan - hense the brown spots in the bread (picture above) - it still tasted fine though!  The taste is nice, just dont have the expectation that it will taste exactly like a piece of bread, I found the texture a little more cakey than what I would consider bread to be.  It is delicious though!

I actually followed this recipe pretty closely.  I really wanted it to work out, and I even made sure I had all the right ingredients before starting... impressive!!


  1. 2 cups blanched almond flour
  2. 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  3. 1/4 cup of golden flaxmeal - you can find this at costco - just be sure to store in the freezer once you open the bag :-)
  4. 1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt - regular old sea salt for me
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 5 eggs
  7. 1 tablespoon of coconut oil - i melted the coconut oil
  8. 1 tablespoon of honey
  9. 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar - I use Braggs organic apple cider you can buy it at superstore - just shake well before measuring
  1. place almond flour, coconut flour, flax, salt and baking soda in the food processor
  2. pulse ingredients together
  3. pulse in eggs oil and vinegar
  4. pour batter into a greased 7.5x3.5 pan - i just used whatever sized pan I had :-)
  5. bake at 350 for 30 minutes
  6. cool in pan for 2 hours - I may have skipped this step too - although I think it was pretty close to 2 hours
I got this recipe from: Elana's Pantry

Hope it works out for you and helps fill that bread/sandwich craving that a Paleo lifestyle can leave you with!

Happy Baking!!
