Paleo Bread

Paleo Bread

I got it in my head a few days ago that I wanted to try making the Paleo bread recipe I had seen on Carrots N Cake.  The recipe wasn’t from her but from Elana’s Pantry (click for recipe).  I tossed around the different recipes she had but finally settled on the one recommended by CNC.  First, I had to the hit the heath food store for odd ingredients like Almond and Coconut Flours.

DSC_0345-2Let me tell you, almond flour is expensive so I don’t think I’ll be using it often (or making this bread ever again since it used almost the whole bag!).  Anyway, so it was pretty easy.  You use a food processor.  My batter almost didn’t fit when I needed to add the wet ingredients but I managed to make it work.

DSC_0353The bread actually came out pretty well!  It didn’t rise as much as I thought (I even used the smaller bread pan as instructed in the recipe).  It reminds me more of a dry banana bread texture than a yeast bread.  It was fun making it though!  Last night I tried it with some Irish butter and today I made eggs and put it on top.  Definitely delicious!

I have to say though that I kind of knew I wouldn’t be that excited.  I mean, I really don’t miss bread.  I do like having something to eat my eggs with but really, I don’t need bread every day.  And when I do eat bread, I’d rather it be the real deal.  So while this was fun and delicious, I don’t need it.  More of a fun time baking.  I kind of saw this happening since I used to wonder why people made replacements for things.  The whole point of Paleo is to eat like your ancestors and they weren’t baking Paleo bread.  But then again, I understand that if you really want something bread-like and you really can’t have any grains, then this is what you have!  It’s just not going to be a regular occurrence for me but I recommend the recipe if you are looking for something.


On another note, I took this cute photo this morning on my porch.  I just loved how the dew was just sitting there!

  1. Thanks for the receipe. I was going to try this one too, as I wanted to have a tuna sandwitch once in awhile. Thanks for the post. Looks good.

  2. It may be cheaper for you to make your own (from raw almonds) in the food processor BUT it takes a long time and you have to be sure to no make almond butter ;p

  3. Trader Joes almond meal isn’t too expensive…it’s the least expensive I’ve found…I did make a coconut flour bread way back when, it was very dense and dry – was good toasted and buttered…and like you said, not for everyday use. I don’t miss it either. In fact, a coworker had mentioned one Friday that she was going to make her kids BLT’s for supper since her hubs wasn’t home…so I got it stuck in my head that I wanted the same…so I went out on a limb and bought iceberg lettuce and used that as the bread…it wrapped more easily than a leaf of romaine…kids LOVED it!

    1. I’ve found that I prefer burgers lettuce wrapped too. Go figure, cut it out and learn that you don’t actually like bread that much!

  4. yea for making paleo bread! It looks delicious. I am REALLY trying to limit my bread intake. Most of mine are 1/2 a bagel thin and only 50 calories. Which I know aren’t paleo, but they are quick and easy. I love almond flour, but MAN that stuff is so expensive. I know you can get it cheaper online though as well. And I agree with you and tiffany, when I have a burger, I use lettuce or even a pepper on top to hold on to 🙂
