Paleo Bread

Paleo Bread
So, the Paleo diet is big in a lot of people's worlds at the moment.  I've had a number of customers who've had remarkable improvements moving away from a grain based diet.  When I saw this recipe on Elena's pantry (one of my all time favourite Gluten Free websites) I thought I'd convert it and try it out.

It's nutty and delicious.  It stays fresh and moist for days and has a really great, breadlike, consistency.  It makes a good loaf size (don't think wonder white size, think banana bread size) but is quite dense, so you only need a little.  It slices well and stands up to being filled like a sandwich style bread.

Let me know what you think, cavepeoples!


Paleo Bread
(converted from Elena's Pantry)

Ingredients:-

300g almonds
15g coconut flour
40g linseeds
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
5 eggs
50g coconut oil
35g honey
15g apple cider vinegar

Method:-

1.  Place almonds in TM bowl and mill for 30 seconds on speed 10.
2.  Add coconut flour, linseeds, salt & baking soda.  Mix for 5 seconds on speed 5.
3.  Add remainder of ingredients and mix for 15 seconds on speed 3.

Pour into a lined, small loaf tin (mine measures 10 x 20cm) and bake on 180C for 45 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out cleanly).

  1. I am off to buy myself 300g of almonds today. I am looking for a great GF bread for my son and I and this looks wonderful. One of my goals this year is to make our bread from scratch rather than buy it or using packet mixes.

  2. Would LSA work instead of the linseeds or would it make it too dense?

  4. So when I do eat bread at home, it's about the grown wheat. Great eatery bread, in any case, is a heavenly, if incidental, flight. bread machine manual
