paleo almond butter nut bread

Hello friends!

It’s funny for us sometimes to make bread recipes as we are not really bread people. Guess that’s from years and years of not eating any bread due to gluten. But now that we are smarter, we’ve figured out ways to enjoy bread again . And loving it. From our simple 2 ingredient bread to our chocolate nut bread now to this basic nut based grain-free bread. We have a few more ideas that we can’t wait to play around with.

This recipe is made up of just 5 real main ingredients. But if you wanted to be exact with ingredients it’s more like 10. We feel that is still not that bad, since they are really simple ingredients. Hard to go wrong with almond butter mixed with eggs ;)

Who knew that combining these ingredients would create such a marvelous bread. A bread that we can’t get enough of. We think you will fall in love too! A little mix of savory and sweet.

Mix. Pour. Bake. Slice. Enjoy.

We added in cardamom because we adore almonds and cardamom together. If you do not like cardamom you can use cinnamon. Or any spice of your liking.

    Oooooh, I can’t wait to try this! I think I could too this with ANYthing! Maybe toasted with butter and blackstrap molasses? YUM!

      Coconut flour is the only one you can’t substitute 1:1 I believe. Try twice as much almond flour maybe? Or you can sub cocoa or carob powder 1:1 and make chocolate bread =).

    This bread is fabulous. Love you website ladies. Any tip to avoid breads from splitting on the top when cooking?

  3. Sara says

    I am going to try this with Pumpkin Seed Butter. I can’t do nuts… Do you think it will work?? Can’t wait!

        I made it this using Ener-G egg replacer, and I made them into muffins (my oven sucks and loaf breads never turn out well). It turned out perfectly. So good!

    Ok, don’t be mad, but I made some substitutions (based on what I had in the pantry) and it still came out a winner. This bread is fantastic!!!!!!!!!! I will be making this again as soon as this loaf gets gobbled up!!!
    For almond butter, I only had the crunchy kind. Definitely make yours with crunchy almond butter!!!!!!!! The perfect texture contrast to the bread.
    No coconut flour so I used chick pea flour (garbanzo).
    No cardamom so I used cinnamon.
    Not sure what hemp protein is, so I just used hemp seeds (whole).
    And lastly, no apple cider vinegar, so I used white.
    Ya I probably went against your whole eating philosophy or diet, but my diet is quite content with this version. It’s not always easy to find gluten and dairy free recipes. You ladies rock my world

    I made this on the weekend.. and then proceeded to make it as french toast like you girls did in another post. Otherwise I always steer clear of bread.. I’m HOOKEd to this now :)So happy to have a new source for breakfast!!

  6. sara says

    So excited, I could not believe this worked. I like it better than I ever liked regular bread anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 years now I cannot wait to try with other nut butters. Thank you.

  7. Michelle says

    Hey! I was wondering if you added an over-ripe banana or two would it make it banana bread? Or would it change the consistency of the batter too much? Thanks in advance, can’t wait to try it – bananas or not! :)

  8. Ingrid says

    I made this with an egg replacer and used a no carb maple syrup (basically just tastes like maple) and it turned out really well. This will be a regular in my kitchen!

    I love his bread so much! I can’t count the number of times I’ve made it. The first time I thought the cardamom was a little strong, so I did 1tsp cinnamon and 1tsp cardamom. I love it that way. Today I decided to try adding some seeds. I added 1 or 2 TBSP each of chia seeds, hemp seeds, raw sunflower and pumpkin seeds. I was worried it might not hold up as well, but it did and the texture was awesome…would probably be able to add more seeds next time. I love it for a turkey sandwich.
