As Good as the Real Thing

Ever since the paleo diet started to become more well-known, people migrating from conventional diets have been seeking to replace some of their main staple foods and make sure they were paleo-friendly. Replacements have been found for noodles, pizza crust, and other sweet treats. One of the last items to be created is a paleo bread.

For paleo bread, there are a few variations that can be done. The simplest? Purchase Paleo Bread by The Julian Bakery. They have two varieties, one from coconut and the other from almond flour. From the reviews I have read around the web, people seem in favour of it over traditional breads.

If that sounds appealing, Elana has posted a recipe for paleo bread made primarily with almond flour and eggs. That recipe has received nearly 500 glowing reviews on her website and is definitely worth checking out.

Finally, Richard Nikoley at Free the Animal, has posted his version of paleo bread that is made with a macadamia nut butter and eggs. It creates a more dense bread and involves fewer ingredients than Elana's recipe. I will share it below since it is short.

Hope you enjoy this recipe or Elana's, or are able to purchase the Paleo Bread.

Cook Time

Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 35 min
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: 1 standard loaf

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs, (medium - large)
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts, raw whole
  • 1 cup coconut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

  1. First, throw the nuts into a food processor. You want to break them down into a butter. Leaving a few nut pieces a little chunky is okay.
  2. While the processor is still running on high, add an egg. Wait 20 seconds, add a second egg. After another 20 seconds, go ahead and add the remaining eggs.
  3. Turn it down to low and add the coconut butter and sea salt. After 20 seconds, add the lemon juice. Let it mix together, then add the baking soda as the final ingredient.
  4. Once the batter is smooth, put into a greased bread pan and into the oven at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
