Paleo Bread

So, as promised, I decided to try making “Paleo Bread,” which comes from Elana’s Pantry and can be found here.

For those of you not inclined to click on the link, here’s the recipe:

  • 1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • ¼ cup golden flaxseed meal
  • ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 5 eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  1. Place almond flour, coconut flour, flax, salt, and baking soda in a food processor.
  2. Pulse ingredients together.
  3. Pulse in eggs, oil, honey, and vinegar.
  4. Pour batter into a greased 7.5″ x 3.5″ loaf pan.
  5. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
  6. Cool and serve.

It was incredibly easy to make, taking only about 55 minutes from start to finish.  The use of my roommate’s sweet food processor certainly helped things along.  The finished bread tastes kind of like banana bread (but obviously without the bananas) and definitely has the consistency of more dessert-like breads.  I wouldn’t ever use this to make sandwiches, for instance.

Here is a photo of the bread before going into the oven, followed by the finished product.  The recipe calls for 30 minutes in the oven, but our oven required more like 45, because it is officially the Coldest Oven in the World.  (Apparently.)

The Poconos and family time for Labor Day Weekend.  Glorious.  Such a great time.  It really is such a special place for me.

However, this meant kind of doing a sort of “half-hearted fast” for the weekend, seeing as most of the food to be had was non-paleo.  I didn’t necessarily go hungry, but I ate a lot of fruit this past weekend.  Some meat when it was around, but it felt good to stay strong and not deviate.

I’ve thought about some sort of goal for these 30 days, and one of them includes trying a brand-new recipe every week (even better, trying 2 or 3).  For this week, I’m going to try the following:


It’d be so very, very nice to eat sandwiches again, so I’ll try making this bread and add some rosemary, thyme, and marjoram to it to see whether I can kick up the flavor a bit.  Wish me luck!

Here’s a pic from lunch today.  Enjoy!
