Ingredients & Substitutions
Almond flour is a common Paleo baking flour. It is slightly nutty, hearty and delicious. There is no perfect substitute for almond flour. Almond flour is great for this Gluten Free Bread too.
Tapioca flour adds a chewy texture to this grain free bread. Cornstarch (not Paleo) and arrowroot powder are direct substitutes if needed.
Ground flaxseed also adds a great texture. Flaxseeds are hailed as a superfood. They are loaded with nutrients, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids.
Six eggs go into this quick bread. The eggs are vital in creating a soft fluffy texture. Do not replace eggs with flax eggs, chia eggs, or any other Vegan egg replacement.
Olive oil adds a great flavor and helps sightly thin out the batter. Avocado oil can replace olive oil if needed. I used Bona Furtuna olive oil which is the highest quality!
Room temperature coconut oil is a delicious baking fat. Use coconut oil that is solid, but not cold or melted. Refined coconut oil has a neutral flavor, while unrefined coconut oil has a slight coconut flavor. Use whichever you prefer.
Honey adds a hint of natural sweetness. If desired, maple syrup or date syrup can be used in its place. I wouldn’t suggest leaving it out entirely. Otherwise, this bread would be very savory!
Apple cider vinegar reacts with the baking soda to really help this bread rise. Unlike most of my baking recipes, the goal with this bread was to have it rise considerably.
Baking soda is the perfect leavening agent. It reacts with the apple cider vinegar to give this bread its rise.
Just a pinch of sea salt adds a little something!
Taste & Texture
This gluten free dairy free bread is hearty, a little nutty, and slightly savory. The flaxseed flavor comes through nicely.
It has a great soft and fluffy texture. Similar to regular bread, it is spongy, airy and chewy.
Paleo baking can be tricky. It oftentimes takes at least two Paleo flours to achieve the perfect texture.
In this grain free bread recipe, both almond flour and tapioca flour contribute to the dough. Almond flour adds a great flavor while the tapioca flour adds chewiness.
The flaxseeds gives this bread some substance. Unlike other Paleo baked goods, this bread needs to be strong enough to withstand the toaster, toppings and sandwich fillings.
Since Paleo baking can sometimes yield dry and bland baked goods, the eggs are super important. The six eggs yield a soft and fluffy final result.
How to Make
First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9 inch by 5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Lightly spray inside with nonstick spray.
Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend until completely mixed. Batter will be thick. If needed, stop and scrape down sides of blender occasionally and then continue blending.
Once completely blended, pour batter into lined loaf pan. Spread into one even layer.
Bake uncovered for 38 to 40 minutes or until top of bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove bread from oven. Allow bread to cool for 30 minutes in pan. Then carefully remove bread from pan and allow it to cool another 30 minutes.
Finally, slice and serve.
Expert Tips & Tricks
Use a large enough piece of parchment paper that overhands over the edges. In addition, spray the pan with nonstick spray.
While blending, stop and scrape down sides of blender if needed. This is a lot of ingredients for one blender and it can be tough to get the batter fully blended. I used my Vitamix and had to stop it twice to scrape down the sides to get it fully mixed.
Allow the bread to cool before slicing and serving. It is tempting to dig in immediately, but the bread needs to cool down first.

How to Serve & Store
Serve grain free bread once it has cooled. Make almond butter and jelly sandwiches, make it into toast, or use it as the base of French toast. It is also great with Whole30 Egg Salad and Whole30 Chicken Salad!
Store bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Store in fridge for up to 5 days.
Alternatively, freeze bread for up to 1 month.
