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.

Perfect sliced bread with no flour!

Perfect to enjoy plain.  Or jazz it up with more almond butter, ghee, coconut oil for more healthy fats.  Or keep it on the savory side with using the bread as a base for a good sandwich.

With just a few ingredients you have yourself one incredible bread.

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.

    I would top my almond butter bread…..with more almond butter! :D or maybe coconut butter, raw mio; anything sweet!

  2. I would top it with some wild blueberry jam that I have in the fridge at the moment! And maybe a slathering of coconut oil

      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 =).

  17. […] my ‘must eat’ list: this blueberry bar, this blueberry trail mix, these spring rolls, almond butter bread. i wish so much my stomach would love […]

  18. Andréanne says:

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

  19. […] also included some food prep time! I made this almond butter nut bread and modified this pesto by adding some walnuts! I’m planning to enjoy it over zucchini […]

  20. 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!

  21. Esther says:

    I would love to make this…what can I use instead of eggs? I’m vegan.

  22. Debbie says:

    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

    • purelytwins says:

      Debbie that sounds amazing. Those substitutions sound perfect, just something we would love!! so happy that it turned out for you and you loved it! it’s our favorite too ;) enjoy

  23. Angele says:

    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!!

  25. JL says:

    Any idea what the macronutients and calorie breakdown is for this?

  26. 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.

  27. 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! :)
