For even the strongest willed athletes, warm bread hot out of the oven is hard to resist! I’ve been thinking of making a gluten free, dairy free version for a while now, but couldn’t find the right inspiration…until I landed on Dr. Frank Lipman’s Paleo bread recipe! This is the first time I’ve ever baked my own bread, and it was good!! Given the high fat from coconut oil, and high protein from 5 eggs, this bread is sure to satisfy your hunger! Spread some almond or cashew butter on it and you are good to go! Enjoy!
Paleo Bread: If you’d like to make this bread more sweet, try adding 1 tsp. of ground cinnamon or vanilla extract.
1 1/2 cups almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/4 cup golden flaxseed meal
1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
5 organic/free range eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Directions: Place almond flour, coconut flour, flax, salt and baking soda in a food processor and pulse the ingredients together. Add in eggs, oil, honey and vinegar and pulse. Pour batter into a greased 7.5″ x 3.5″ non-stick loaf pan (I use coconut oil to grease the pan). Bake at 350° F for about 40 minutes. Cool and serve.
