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 we are 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.

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.

    Posted on February 26, 2014 at 11:59 am
    1. cardamom is a spice

      Posted on February 26, 2014 at 12:16 pm

  7. Am I missing something ….what temperature do you bake the bread at??

    Posted on February 26, 2014 at 1:11 pm
    1. Jennifer – 350. We will go correct that in the recipe. thanks!

      Posted on February 26, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Posted on February 26, 2014 at 1:36 pm
  9. Sounds great! I am not a big bread person either, but LOVE breakfast breads like this. Topped with a drizzle of honey and dollop of nut butter!

    Posted on February 26, 2014 at 2:23 pm
    1. Taylor honey on this would be perfect.

      Posted on February 26, 2014 at 7:14 pm
  10. Ohh that looks SO good! Alex made some banana bread a couple of weeks ago (haha it’s adorable when he bakes) and I’ve been craving it ever since! I might have to try this, since I’m sure it would be healthier!

    Posted on February 26, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    Posted on February 26, 2014 at 5:42 pm
  13. My daughter (and I!) would gobble this up! I’m not a big bread person either, but pregnancy has me wanting it suddenly. 🙂

    Posted on February 26, 2014 at 8:39 pm
  14. Oooooh, I can’t wait to try this! I think I could too this with ANYthing! Maybe toasted with butter and blackstrap molasses? YUM!

    Posted on February 27, 2014 at 8:49 am
  15. Totally making this ASAP- Have everything except cardamon! Thanks for sharing

    Posted on February 27, 2014 at 5:03 pm
  16. AMAZING! Could I use almond flour instead of coconut flour? Same amount? Might give this a try this week…looks oh so good! XO

    Posted on March 2, 2014 at 10:48 pm
    1. 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 =).

      Posted on March 27, 2014 at 1:17 am
  17. This bread is fabulous. Love you website ladies. Any tip to avoid breads from splitting on the top when cooking?

    Posted on March 8, 2014 at 12:36 pm
  18. I am going to try this with Pumpkin Seed Butter. I can’t do nuts… Do you think it will work?? Can’t wait!

    Posted on March 25, 2014 at 8:21 pm
    1. Sara yes it should, go by using the 9oz of weight for your seed butter. Sounds delicious, we might have to give it a try

      Posted on March 25, 2014 at 8:24 pm
  19. I would love to make this…what can I use instead of eggs? I’m vegan.

    Posted on March 25, 2014 at 9:42 pm
    1. You can try using flax gel as the egg replacement, or you could try doing 2 flax gels and and half cup of yogurt or applesauce.

      Posted on March 26, 2014 at 7:13 am
    2. Did you try it with the egg subs yet? I’m vegan as well and would like to give this a shot.

      Posted on March 31, 2014 at 9:47 pm
      1. 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!

        Posted on April 15, 2014 at 10:56 am
  20. 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

    Posted on March 26, 2014 at 2:29 pm
    1. 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

      Posted on March 26, 2014 at 2:58 pm
  21. 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!!

    Posted on April 7, 2014 at 4:20 pm
    1. wahoo awesome Angele, so happy to hear this! we usually stay away from bread too, but it is nice to have this option 🙂

      Posted on April 7, 2014 at 4:33 pm
  22. Any idea what the macronutients and calorie breakdown is for this?

    Posted on June 7, 2014 at 9:39 pm
    1. no we don’t

      Posted on June 8, 2014 at 6:30 am
  23. 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.

    Posted on July 28, 2014 at 5:17 pm
    1. Awesome Sara!! So glad you liked the recipe

      Posted on July 28, 2014 at 9:38 pm
  24. 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! 🙂

    Posted on August 14, 2014 at 10:32 pm
    1. To be honest we are not sure what adding bananas would do.

      Posted on August 15, 2014 at 10:03 am
  25. 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!

    Posted on April 26, 2015 at 5:32 pm
    1. YAY!!

      Posted on April 26, 2015 at 6:17 pm
  26. 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.

    Posted on August 29, 2015 at 2:28 pm
    1. Awesome Jen!! Love the addition of the seeds.

      Posted on August 29, 2015 at 5:55 pm
  27. Made this today auth the suggested 2 flax egg and 1/2 cup applesauce as the egg replacer. I also used tahini instead of almond butter since we are nut free. We also limit sugar so I used the Lakanto maple syrup. Although it fell a little in the center (which I’m used to in egg free bread!), its very good, slices perfectly! Great recipe!

    Posted on January 6, 2018 at 5:44 pm
    1. Glad you enjoyed the recipe!
