Love Your Food!

My new “bread” obsession

I’ve been on an even more restricted diet than usual lately and have been avoiding grains. It has been a challenge to say the least but if I have learned anything over the last few years of culinary craziness it’s this: when it comes to food (and life) where there’s a will there’s a way!

Grain free, dairy free, sugar free, BUT NOT TASTE FREE! I have already made this almond flour loaf 3 times! It is simple to make and perfect for anyone on a cleanse or just wanting a healthy and satisfying treat. With almond and coconut flours, flax seeds, eggs and coconut oil, this loaf is a protein rich snack and a great source of fiber and healthy fats. The whole loaf only has 1 tbsp of honey to sweeten – the almonds make it sweet enough. And it has a buttery taste that is heavenly! Top with my other new obsession Coconut Manna for a tea time snack that will keep you smiling. The original recipe calls for 5 eggs but I replaced 2 eggs with flax seed and water to cut cost a little (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water = 1 egg).

Almond Flour Loaf (aka Paleo Bread)
originally from www.elanaspantry.com

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  1. In a bowl mix together dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, flax, salt and baking soda).
  2. In a separate bowl mix together wet ingredients (eggs, oil, honey and vinegar).
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until smooth batter forms
