Grain-Free Bread

Yes, it IS possible to make bread without using grain flour or a gluten-free mix.  I tried a simple recipe yesterday and tweaked it a bit to suit our tastes, using unblanched almond meal instead of blanched almond meal that the original recipe used.  The verdict:  it resembled whole wheat bread in looks, taste and texture.  (My daughter said it actually tastes better than wheat bread.)

Grain-Free Bread - makes one loaf
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1/4 c. golden flax seed meal (I used Bob's Red Mill brand)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. white vinegar
Mix dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  Add rest of ingredients and mix until well combined.  Pour into a greased 7.5" x 3.5" loaf pan (and grease that pan VERY well!!!)
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes until loaf tests done with a pick.  (I had to bake mine for 45 minutes.)
Use knife and serving spatula around the edges to loosen the loaf if needed.  Remove from pan.  Cool and serve.
