Who doesn’t like a good slice of bread? Especially straight out of the oven. All warm and toasty…Mmmmm. I haven’t tried making any “sandwichy” (I don’t care what you say, that is a real word.) breads since starting paleo in October. Yesterday was the day. I just craved a warm slice of bread with a little peanut butter. Sometimes a girl just knows what she
needs wants 🙂
I found this recipe here and thought I would give it a try. How bad could it be? Right? Right.
2 cups almond flour
2T coconut flour
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1T coconut oil, melted
1T apple cider vinegar
- Mix dry ingredients together well in your KitchenAid or food processor .
- Add oil, honey, and vinegar. Next add eggs.
- Combine well.
- Pour into well-greased loaf pan. (If using a glass pan like I did, next time I would line with parchment paper instead of greasing. It stuck a little to the bottom.)
- Sprinkle the top with sesame seeds and sea salt.
- Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

Note: The original recipe is for a 7.5 x 3.5 magic line loaf pan. I do not own one. I just used my standard glass loaf pan. The bread only came up about half way in the pan, which was fine for me. I have read other people’s suggestions on how to prevent this from happening. It sounds as simple as doubling the ingredients and time in the oven works great if you want a truly bread-like slice for sandwiches. (Although I would suggest you cover lightly with aluminum foil after 30 minutes. Otherwise, the top will burn.) I might try that approach next time. Let me know if you do. I am curious to see how it would turn out.
This bread is a lot like the consistency of banana bread without the sweet. So if you are not interested in that texture, this recipe is not for you. I am not 100% convinced it is the best one out there, but I was able to make it with ingredients I had in my pantry, which is always a plus.
