paleo almond butter nut bread

by purelytwins

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.

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 isย still not that bad, since they are really simple ingredients. Hard to go wrong with almond butter mixed with eggs ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

I would top my almond butter bread…..with more almond butter! ๐Ÿ˜€ or maybe coconut butter, raw mio; anything sweet!

purelytwins February 26, 2014 - 10:45 am

oh yes coconut butter yum!

Jojo @ RunFastEatLots February 26, 2014 - 10:53 am

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

Lori February 26, 2014 - 11:38 am

I can not wait to try this! I just recently switched from a vegan lifestyle to more of a paleo and I am craving bread! This looks amazing.

purelytwins February 26, 2014 - 11:43 am

awesome Lori ๐Ÿ™‚ you will love it!

Becky@TheSavedRunner February 26, 2014 - 11:59 am

Ooh I can’t wait to try this! What is the ingredient cardamom though? I have never heard of that.

purelytwins February 26, 2014 - 12:16 pm

cardamom is a spice

Erica February 26, 2014 - 12:15 pm

YUM! I’ve been loving almond butter lately and am always looking for new ways to use it. Great texture!

Annette@FitnessPerks February 26, 2014 - 12:52 pm

Mmmm I love almond butter anything! This looks fab!

Jennifer February 26, 2014 - 1:11 pm

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

purelytwins February 26, 2014 - 7:13 pm

Jennifer – 350. We will go correct that in the recipe. thanks!

Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries February 26, 2014 - 1:36 pm

Looks delicious! Yum! I would definitely go the sweet route!

Taylor @ LiftingRevolution February 26, 2014 - 2:23 pm

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!

purelytwins February 26, 2014 - 7:14 pm

Taylor honey on this would be perfect.

Liz @ I Heart Vegetables February 26, 2014 - 3:13 pm

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!

Meg @ A Dash of Meg February 26, 2014 - 3:15 pm

purelytwins February 26, 2014 - 7:18 pm

Tami Jo Eaton February 26, 2014 - 5:42 pm

I love to toast bread and then top with butter. Yum!

Laura @ Mommy Run Fast February 26, 2014 - 8:39 pm

My daughter (and I!) would gobble this up! I’m not a big bread person either, but pregnancy has me wanting it suddenly. ๐Ÿ™‚

Brooke February 27, 2014 - 8:49 am

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

Laura@ Fit Running Mama February 27, 2014 - 5:03 pm

Totally making this ASAP- Have everything except cardamon! Thanks for sharing

She Rocks Fitness March 2, 2014 - 10:48 pm

AMAZING! Could I use almond flour instead of coconut flour? Same amount? Might give this a try this week…looks oh so good! XO

bob March 27, 2014 - 1:17 am

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 =).

Andrรฉanne March 8, 2014 - 12:36 pm

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

Sara March 25, 2014 - 8:21 pm

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

purelytwins March 25, 2014 - 8:24 pm

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

Esther March 25, 2014 - 9:42 pm

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

purelytwins March 26, 2014 - 7:13 am

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.

Kristen March 31, 2014 - 9:47 pm

Did you try it with the egg subs yet? I’m vegan as well and would like to give this a shot.

Megan April 15, 2014 - 10:56 am

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!

Debbie March 26, 2014 - 2:29 pm

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 March 26, 2014 - 2:58 pm

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ enjoy

Angele April 7, 2014 - 4:20 pm

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!!

purelytwins April 7, 2014 - 4:33 pm

wahoo awesome Angele, so happy to hear this! we usually stay away from bread too, but it is nice to have this option ๐Ÿ™‚

JL June 7, 2014 - 9:39 pm

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

purelytwins June 8, 2014 - 6:30 am

no we don’t

sara July 28, 2014 - 5:17 pm

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.

purelytwins July 28, 2014 - 9:38 pm

Awesome Sara!! So glad you liked the recipe

Michelle August 14, 2014 - 10:32 pm

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

purelytwins August 15, 2014 - 10:03 am

To be honest we are not sure what adding bananas would do.

Ingrid April 26, 2015 - 5:32 pm

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!

purelytwins April 26, 2015 - 6:17 pm


Jennifer August 29, 2015 - 2:28 pm

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.

purelytwins August 29, 2015 - 5:55 pm

Awesome Jen!! Love the addition of the seeds.

Deanna Schafer January 6, 2018 - 5:44 pm

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!

purelytwins January 9, 2018 - 9:37 am

Glad you enjoyed the recipe!
