I’m sure there are some good grain-free bread recipes out there–I just haven’t found one that we really like. So, I combined a few different recipes, modified it some and came up with this one. If you make it in a regular loaf pan, it will be a short loaf–about 2 inches high. But it still is good toasted or plain as a sandwich or with honey-sweetened strawberry jam. The texture is totally different than a wheat flour bread, but we like it. I hope you do as well!
Grain-Free Sandwich Bread
3/4 cup sifted coconut flour
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 cup almonds-ground
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil (melted)
2 Tbsp. honey (optional)*
sesame seeds (optional)
1.Preheat oven to 350 degree.
2. Combine dry ingredients.
3. Add applesauce, butter or oil, eggs and honey and mix well with a hand mixer or stand mixer.
4. Pour batter into greased loaf pan or pans (1 regular size loaf pan or 2 small loaf pans** — I grease sides of pan with butter). Sprinkle sesame seeds on top of batter if desired.
5. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean.
6. Let cool completely before storing. (I store it in the fridge, but don’t know if that is necessary.)
*Optional: I accidentally left the honey out one time and loved the result!
**The loaf in the picture was made in a small loaf pan — 5″ x 2 1/4″ x 2″ (the plate was a small plate)
