Nutty Paleo Bread

‘The best thing since sliced bread….’ says no gluten free foodie ever.

I have to say I’ve learnt to live without bread and I don’t really miss it. I could buy the gluten free options, but they’re just so expensive and as I rarely eat it, it just goes off quick! But every now and then I will fancy some bread, usually I’ll make my go to banana bread which I love but I wanted to try something a bit different.

I received some amazing coconut and almond flour from Sukrin – Raw, organic, fat reduced and gluten free, I couldn’t wait to start baking once I received these! I’ve tried baking with many gluten free flours before but the texture was usually crumbly and tough.

This ‘paleo bread’ is better than banana bread; its soft, nutty and holds better together.

  • 1 Tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2 cups of ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup of Sukrin coconut flour
