Recipe: Bread.

January 30, 2015

Yes, you read that title right. I made bread, paleo bread! This is a huge break in the paleo lifestyle for me. Bread is definitely something I've been missing and I'm really glad I found a delicious recipe for those moments when all I want is a sandwich. Now, warning, just because it's paleo doesn't mean it's as good for you as green veggies :) but as my dad has always said, everything in moderation. So when you're craving bread, you go girl, you make that paleo bread and you love it.

The recipe was pretty easy and my house smelled incredible. I'm pretty sure there is nothing better than the smell of bread baking in the oven. Maybe the smell of red wine while you're baking bread, but regardless, bread. (if you're counting, bread was said 9 times, now 10 times in this post, you're welcome).

Okay, what you've been waiting for, the recipe!

  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal 
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
How to make:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. 
  3. In a large bowl, combine almond butter (I heated mine up a bit to make it easier to stir), eggs, coconut oil, honey and apple cider vinegar together with a hand blender. 
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flaxseed, coconut flour, baking soda and salt. 
  5. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. 
  6. Pour the dough into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes until browned. 
  7. Remove from oven and allow loaf to cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. 
  8. Enjoy for up to one week. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 
secret; microwave the almond butter, makes it easier to mix 
I think the secret ingredient is the flaxseed, it's so good. 
the real picture should be me attempting to pour the batter in here. 
cut your parchment paper bigger than I did
but seriously, how great does that look. 
so. good.

How to Make:

  2. Heat a large skillet with 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Cook chicken about 3 minutes on each side. 
  3. Make sandwiches! 
  4. EAT! Enjoy! 


  1. This looks delicious! I might have to try it! The hard part will be not eating it all in one day!!

  2. I love that you make your own bread. It's looks super moist and delish and the sandwich you made with it looks yummy too!

  3. Yum!!! I'm gluten free, so I can't really have homemade bread anymore. Thanks for the recipe!
