paleo bread recipe

Paleo Bread Recipe:

Are you looking for the perfect paleo bread recipe for a sandwich or for toast? This paleo bread recipe is perfect for both!

After months of working on this recipe I have finally come up with the best combination of ingredients. In the past I tried several recipes I came across online and none of them came out exactly how I wanted.

This delicious paleo bread Recipe can be eaten plain or used as sandwich bread. This is the best homemade paleo bread recipe that can be used for sandwich bread because it does not easily fall apart or crumble as many breads do. This bread is my favorite for sandwich bread for lunch, just add avocado and some veggies.

I also love toasting this bread and adding butter (almond or coconut butter) tastes so good! Makes an easy and quick breakfast when there is no time to cook.

 

Ingredients:

-1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
-1 1/4 Cups Almond Flour
-1/4 Cup Ground Chia Seeds or Flaxseeds
- 5 Eggs
-1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
-4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (melted)
-1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
-1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

 

(This recipe makes a smaller loaf of bread, in order to have larger pieces of bread you may want to double the recipe)

Paleo Bread Recipe Instructions:

1. Blend all dry ingredients in bowl and all wet ingredients in separate bowl.
2. Combine wet and dry ingredients.
3. Pour into a 7.5 “x 3.5″ loaf pan and smooth the top.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.
5. Let cool before slicing.

    I just made this bread this afternoon. It’s perfect! I toasted a piece and put some coconut butter on it and it was delicious! Thanks for the awesome recipe.

        hello lori,
        i would just like to know how much carbs are there in one slice of this bread. or what are the calorie value of paleo bread. i have tried this bread couple of times now and i love it. i am on atkins diet and wold like to know if i am consuming the right amount of carbs or more??

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          A few comments up I posted all the nutritional info except, I don’t think I calculated the calories. You can put it into a free recipe calculator online. Hope this helps!

          • Laura says

            I cant seem to find the nutrition information anywhere, could you please repost?? Thanks so much, anxious to try this recipe!

  3. derek says

    Should the bread rise? We just baked some and it seem to be done baking in 35 minutes and it did not rise. Any thoughts?

    • Lori says

      Hi Derek, It should rise a little due to the reaction between the baking soda and apple cider vinegar, however it does not rise anywhere near what a typical bread would(with yeast and flour). The recipe makes a somewhat smaller loaf of bread and a narrower pan would create taller pieces. In order to get larger pieces of bread I sometimes double up the recipe. It may be done around 35 to 40 minutes depending on the oven rack height, check if the bread has lightly browned on the top.

      • Anonymous says

        Do you think using almond meal vs. almond flour would make any difference? We usually use meal for everything. By the way it taste GREAT!

        We were thinking of using a taller thinner pan and doubling up the recipe so we would have more of a sandwich bread

        Thanks for the fast response :-)

        • Lori says

          So glad you liked the paleo bread recipe! :) I have tried using both almond meal and almond flour for the recipe and it did not make a difference in the result for me, so either one should be fine. I am sure you will like it even more when you double recipe, it comes out exactly the same size as typical bread. (I will add a note on the top of the post so others can see the option of doubling the recipe to get larger bread slices.) Thank you for sharing the results!

          • carlos says

            Hi Lori,

            good recipe. I am not on a paleo diet but was diagnosed with type II diabetes and trying to get away from sugars and breads which is tough since I am a bread lover. I hate coconut with a passion so is it good to use all almond flour or meal? And I am not adverse to using yeast so would it rise better adding yeast to the mix?
            thanks,

            Carlos

            • Lori, Health Extremist says

              Hi Carlos, giving up bread was a tough one for me too. But there are some great options with coconut flour and almond flour. For this bread, either almond meal or flour will work. The one I usually purchase is labeled almond meal/flour. If you are going to switch out the coconut flour for all almond, just remember that coconut flour is a heavier flour, so you will need to replace the amount of coconut flour with even more almond flour. Yeast should definitely make it rise better, I haven’t given this a try though.

    • says

      Me too, its in the oven and looks done at 35 mins. Plus the dough was more like cookie dough so I just patted it into the pan….. is that how its supposed to be? Hope it tastes good and holds together because I double the recipe so if it doesn’t that’s a lot of ingredients wasted!

      • says

        Mine turned out very dense and dry and a doesn’t hold too well in the toaster. We will still eat it but I don’t know what I did wrong. Definitely needs more moisture in the dough. Maybe next time I’ll add a cup of applesauce or reduce the amount of coconut flour, that sucks up moisture like anything.

  4. Josh says

    My first time making this recipe. I used a 9.25×5.25×2.75in loaf pan because that’s all I had. The batter did not ‘pour’ into the pan, rather it was very clumpy (I followed the recipe exactly, too.) It seemed done in less than 30 minutes and it was rather dry. I am a little disappointed with the way my loaf turned out.

    I will have to try making it again using a smaller pan to see if it makes a difference.

    • Lori says

      Hi Josh, did you use the coconut oil when it was liquid? Measuring it when it is hardened may influence the end result. Also, try using extra coconut oil to grease the pan before pouring in the batter. Maybe try covering the bread while cooking. The batter should be thick but not really clumpy. Maybe try using an electric mixer or adding a few drops of water if necessary. Sorry to hear that it did not turn out well. Hope this helps.

      • Josh says

        Hey Lori, thanks for the quick response!

        I melted the coconut oil until it was liquid and then measured it. Yes I oiled the pan with some coconut oil. As I mentioned before, the batter doesn’t ‘pour’ into the pan, it has the consistency of slightly-dryer mashed potatoes. I hand mixed it instead of using an electric mixer.

        Cool thanks I will have to try your suggestions and see how it turns out a second time.

        • Lori says

          When I make it the batter doesn’t pour into the pan either. The batter ends up fairly thick and is more similar to as you mentioned soft mashed potatoes. (maybe just add a tablespoon or 2 of water or coconut oil, if it seems too dry) Hope the next one turns out well!

            • Lori, Health Extremist says

              I have made it in different size loaf pans and the bread comes out the same, it just depends on what type of shape and size of the bread you prefer. I prefer a very narrow pan (mine is 7.5″ x 3.5″) which creates taller pieces of bread. The recipe does make a small loaf of bread (the pieces come out to about 1/2 to 3/4′s the size of an average piece of bread and I sometimes double the recipe if I want larger pieces of bread.

              • Kathy says

                I’ve been missing eating bread ever since my family and I went wheat-free more than 6 months ago. Your recipe looks awesome and gets great reviews. I’m looking forward to baking this bread very soon but need some additional info before I try it out. When you double this recipe do you still use the 7.5″ X 3.5″ pan?

          • Anonymous says

            I wish you had mentioned melting/heating the oil in you directions with the recipe. My loaf is in the oven now and fear i will have the same issues as others. This is my first time baking with coconut oil and when i googled if it should be melted it stated only if the recipe specifies. Maybe an edit is in order.

            • Lori, Health Extremist says

              Sorry, I will add this to all of my recipes. I should have included it for those not used to baking with coconut oil. I hope the bread came out good.

  5. Kat says

    Hi Lori, I love getting the emails each day so I know when someone posts on here. I’m going to make the bread today and wash my hair with baking soda! on the bread, do you think it would be OK to use applesauce for some of the eggs? I wanted to make a double batch but at $8.50 a dozen for eggs (from pasture raised chickens, it was getting a little pricy… what do you think? Thanks again, Kat

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Kat, I am so glad you like the email updates! Let us know how the bread turns out. Substituting applesauce for the eggs should work fine, many people use that as a substitute in recipes, especially since there will be a few eggs in the recipe to act as a binder. Hope you like the no poo method for washing your hair. It seems strange at first, but after a few days or the first couple weeks you get use to it. After only a couple weeks I saw a great change my hair!

      • Kat says

        Hi Lori, I went ahead and made a regular loaf. I’m waiting right now for it to cool so I can check it out. I actually had a small loaf pan that it fit in perfectly. It’s so cute! lol

        My hair is still a little damp but it was easy enough to comb out. My hair is waist length and I wear it in a pony tail most of the time. I put it on dry like you said you do and next time I’ll do it in the shower. lol I had lots of powder to clean up when I got out of the shower. I’m assuming you do it in the shower before actually turning on the water??? Let me know. I had some left over from the 5 tablespoons of baking soda. I felt like I had a really big head of hair and I just couldn’t get anymore on it. (: I also used the ASV afterward and my hair is as good if not better to comb out now so I’ll keep using that too.

        what about body wash? What do you use for that? It seems if I’m not going to use chemicals on my head, I shouldn’t use it on the rest of me either. Thanks for everything you do here. I’m really glad I found you. Kat

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          Hi Kat, I usually put the baking soda on in the shower before I turn the water on, I occasionally put it on over the sink but it does end up a little messy. For body wash the only thing I use is coconut oil. Coconut oil is anti-bacterial and anti-viral, plus it is also very moisturizing even when just putting it on and rinsing it off. :) I am so glad you like the website!

          • Kat says

            I also like the way you get back to me so fast and I thank you for that Lori.

            Now I have another question. Maybe 2… Do you put the coconut oil on before you start the shower too? How much do you use? It just so happens I just got a big jar of it the other day. lol Little did I know… What about deodorant? You have me thinking I can really get all this yucky stuff off my body. lol Thanks for all you help.

            Oh btw, my hair really is greasier than before I washed it yesterday. My hair is greasy usually within a day or 2 even at 57 years old. I don’t like to wash my hair so often because it’s just not good for my hair. How often can I use the baking powder? I thought it would be drying since it seemed to soak up the grease in my hair when I was putting it on. I guess I was wrong there. (: I’ll try it again tomorrow to see if it is any better. I just put it up in a pony tail anyway so It’s hard to tell.

            Thanks again, Kat

            • Lori, Health Extremist says

              I use probably a tablespoon or two of the coconut oil, a little goes a long way. I usually just put it on in the shower. When I first used the baking soda to wash my hair the second day it seemed greasy, but then I realized that I needed to use more baking soda and also rub it in better. I think the amount of baking soda to use really depends on the person.

  6. Mark says

    Hi Lori,
    I was wondering if anything can be substituted for the Ground Chia Seeds or Flaxseeds? I need to avoid most seeds as well as grains and would love to try this out.
    Thank you,
    Mark

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Mark, You could substitute crushed nuts. I have tried this for someone in my family allergic to flaxseeds, I used crushed walnuts and it came out great!

    • Anonymous says

      I bought a loaf of Coconut Paleo Bread at the market yesterday and paid $10.94 for one small loaf! Determined to find a cheaper alternative, I read the ingredients on the package and purchased them while I was still shopping. When I got home, I searched for a recipe using these ingredients as the bread was fairly tasty. I couldn’t find an exact match, but in my search, I did find *this* recipe. I had just bought psyllium husk, but didn’t have chia or flax seeds, so I substituted that. Also I used half coconut oil and half olive oil because I just didn’t have enough coconut oil on hand. I also doubled the recipe because, well, I had enough ingredients to do it! My results? Well, the bread came out very delicious and moist (WAY tastier than the bread I bought). I only had one small problem…. It hadn’t baked all the way through (raw in the center) and there weren’t many little air bubbles (not fluffy). Consulting with the best baker I know (Mom), we decided that I should stick with the single recipe using smaller loaf pans to avoid the raw center, and also that I should separate the eggs, whip the whites to form peaks, wait until the oven was ready, then mix the whites into the dough at the very end just before it goes into the oven so that they react with the vinegar and soda and form larger bubbles in the dough. Next batch I will report here right away to let you all know how it turns out. I’m also planning on experimenting with pumpkin bread, gingerbread, honey nut, and dates as alternative ingredients using this wonderful recipe as a base. Thank you so much for this! I’m going to have fun with it!

      • Lori, Health Extremist says

        Thanks for sharing how it came out! When the recipe is doubled, the cooking time should be extended, that may be why it didn’t cook all the way through.

  7. carrie says

    I just made your bread for the fisrt time. It’s actually delicious! More flavorful than most receipes I have tried Paleo. I was leary when I put in the apple cider vinegar, but it is a great receipe. Thanks

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Carrie, thanks for sharing how it came out, so glad you like it! It is one of my favorite paleo recipes. Apple cider vinegar is really a great addition to a recipe, I use it almost all of my recipes.

  8. Amy says

    Lori,

    Thank you for the recipe. I have not tried it yet because I am not sure if using flax meal is compulsory or optional.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Amy, I have tried substituting chia seeds and crushed nuts for the flaxseeds and the bread still came out great! Hope this helps!

  9. Randy the Baker says

    Hello Lori…I like the recipe, but might I suggest replacing the eggs with applesauce (1/4 cup per egg) for those who may have allergies to dairy, per se or be vegan.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Randy, thank you for the great suggestion! This will be very helpful for those who are vegan or have an egg allergy. Thank you so much for your comment! :)

  10. Steph says

    Thank you so much for the recipe.

    I just made a double batch. Do I need to bake it longer than 40-50 minutes? or should i take it out when it is still moist in the middle?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Steph, For the double batch you may need to cook it for up to an hour or an hour and 10 minutes. Just make sure the bread has slightly browned on top. You could also insert a knife into the bread and make sure it comes out clean to ensure it is fully cooked. The bread does come out nice and moist. Hope this helps!

      • Steph says

        Thank you for your quick response. I just took it out of the oven and it smells absolutely mouth-watering. Can’t wait to try it.
        I ended up baking it for about an hour.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Charity, I haven’t tried this recipe using a bread machine. It should work just fine with one though.

  11. Mike says

    I doubled the recipe and cooked for 30 min and it browned nicely on the outside but was still raw in the middle. I had to flip the loaf over and bake it more

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Jen, the almond flour bread comes out to about 5g carbs and 4g dietary fiber, 8g fat, 9g protein. Hope this helps.

      • Anonymous says

        Hi Lori!
        I’m counting all my carbs now and I’d like to know the carb count per serving and how big a serving is? Or just the carb and fiber count in the whole loaf making a single batch would work too…

          Hi Andrea, I posted all of the nutrition info below :)

          Here is what I got for 1 slice of bread:

            130 calories/slice, but how many servings are we assuming? This recipe is delicious! I love it. I’m never buying bread from the store again.

            • Lori, Health Extremist says

              So glad you like the recipe! This was calculated by dividing the bread into 12 slices.

  12. Shane Franklin says

    I am cooking the bread tonight. I added some vanilla for taste. Am looking forward to tasting it. I bought some oven safe paper bread pans, cut one in half and made a “smaller” bread pan within the bigger bread pan. Looking forward to tasting it. Thank you.

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          Hi Kris, I don’t have a bread machine, so I don’t know what setting would work. Hopefully someone that has one will be able to comment on this :)

  13. says

    Hi, Have the bread in the oven. Dough very dry! Had to add warm water. Hope it will be just fine. Have you made this with only coconut flour? I am allergic to Almonds.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Sue, I haven’t made it with only coconut flour. Did you substitute the coconut flour for almond flour? That may be why it is dry. Coconut flour is a much heavier flour and not as much would be needed compared to the almond flour. Hopefully adding the warm water helped and it will still come out great!

      • Danalorraine says

        I Just made this with a mix of coconut flour, quinoa flour and only a little almond meal as I was running low. It came out great. Really a lovely shape and taste. Super moist too.

  14. simon says

    Hi, I tried this but I think the cup measurements lost something in translation to the UK. Can you advise in grams what these are? Thanks.

  15. Lee says

    I’m new to Paleo and just made my first loaf of Paleo bread using this recipe and it turn out awesome!!! Was pleasantly surprised by the texture and taste! Cheers for the recipe!!!!!

  16. Denise says

    Do you have to use coconut oil could or have you used different oil?I do not have any and i’m dying for a great sandwich bread..ty

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Another oil should work just fine. I have only made it with coconut oil, but I have substituted other oils for coconut oil in recipes and they still came out great!

  17. says

    I just made this bread, it’s still cooking actually. I’m very excited to try and find a replacement bread for sandwiches, and soups. I will for sure let you know how it turns out!

  18. Dawn says

    I followed your recipe exactly and it came out PERFECT! My husband (who isn’t Paleo, an excellent cook, and major foodie) also loved it. It tastes great as it is, but I am searching for Paleo spreads (sweet & savory) that I can use on it. Thanks so much for posting!

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          You can find out how many carbs by looking at the nutrition panel of the bag of coconut flour and almond flour. I used bobs red mill brand and it came out to 60g carbs for the whole loaf and 22 net carbs (for entire loaf). It comes out to about 2 to 3 net carbs per slice. Hope this helps. :)

  19. Hillary says

    My husband and I have been experimenting with different paleo breads and have the hardest time to find a neutral sandwich bread! We made this recipe (doubled it) and love it! Toasted it this morning and will definitely be using it again!

    Thanks for doing all the legwork for us!! :)
    H

  20. Jon says

    Just made your bread and its really good. However, I only baked mine for about 28 min @ 350. Mine seems much more dense than what you have pictured. I followed the recipe but something seems a little off I guess.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Norm, You should be able to use olive oil instead of coconut oil. I haven’t used olive oil in place of coconut for this recipe, but I have switched them in many other recipes and they always came out great! Hope you like the recipe! It is my favorite bread :)

  21. norm says

    Lori,

    To add to my previous comment, I am diabetic and this recipe will be helpful to all diabetics. I bought this flour from bulk barn in Toronto, Canada and made pancakes, did not turn out so well but the good news, it did not raise my blood sugar as appose to grain bread which drives it over the cliff. So cudo to you for posting this amazing recipe.

    Please let me know if I can use olive oil as a substitute. Thanks!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Ruth, you definitely can, just watch out because coconut flour is a heavier flour. So when adding more almond flour you will need more than you are taking away from the coconut flour.

  22. says

    Dear Lori,

    Thank you so much for the recipe, I must confess I’ve had bad experiences using these flours so I decided to half the amount of coconut flour, I did put all of the almond flour but next time I will definitely use less, maybe only one cup or even less, I will experiment.

    The taste is good, but I still find it too… solid or compact (for lack of better words). I don’t mind it not rising, since it’s to be expected without any yeast, but I would like it to be softer, suppler, I will try with less flour and see what happens.

    Thank you though, best recipe I’ve tried so far :)

  23. Gloria says

    When I first took the loaf out of the oven it looked pretty sad and I had some serious doubts. I was happily surprised how tasty this bread is. I had two slices this a.m. for breakfast (plain) and was not at all hungry at lunch time. Highly unusual for me! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Silv, what nutritional info would you like on the paleo bread? I calculated the carbs and net carbs. It comes out to about 60g carbs for the whole loaf and 22 net carbs (for entire loaf). Which is about 2 to 3 net carbs per slice. Let me know if you would like the amount of protein, sugars, etc. and I will calculate for you! :)

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Sophie, you can definitely freeze the bread. I did that a few months ago when I was traveling.

  24. Annie says

    I made this yesterday and was shocked how much I loved it! Very dense, which is the best type of bread and the flavor was fantastic! This will be made again and again

  25. Lindy says

    I just made this bread and tried a piece…amazing! The house smelled so good while it was baking. I used olive oil instead of coconut oil and I used flaxseed instead of ground Chia seeds. Definitely making a double batch next time! Love it! Thank you so much for the recipe!

      • Lori, Health Extremist says

        I’m sure there is! Maybe try reducing some of the coconut oil and add in bananas, trying to get the same consistency. I also have a great paleo coconut flour banana bread recipe, I will try to post it later this week! :)

  26. Christen says

    I made this bread yesterday and I love the texture and taste. It was really dry and dense though. What would you suggest to make it a little more moist? Is there anything to make it lighter? I put honey on it and it was a great breakfast bread though.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Christen, you could try adding a little more coconut oil to the mixture next time or using a little less coconut flour.

  27. Ry says

    Can anyone give me a a nutritional break down per slice of this bread please? Would love to try it knowing it fits in with my strict diet. Thanks so much!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Ry, I’ll calculate the full nutritional break down tomorrow for you, I don’t have the labels in front of me right now and sometimes the online calculators can be a little off.

      • Ry says

        Brilliant! Thank you so much. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I have a few other questions if you don’t mind.

        I am unable to eat seeds, is it ok to omit them from the recipe? Or should I replace them with something?

        Is almond flour and ground almonds the same thing? I am only able to locate ground almonds locally.

        Should I use the coconut oil in its solid state? Or does it not matter?

        Thanks again

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          Hi Ry, sorry for taking so long, I tried entering half into an online calculator, but realized that was not close at all. So after a trip to whole foods, I calculated it by hand. Thanks for asking for this, I know a lot of people will find this very helpful! :)
          Here is what I got for 1 slice of bread:
          Paleo Bread Recipe-
          Calories- 130
          Total Fat- 9g
          Saturated Fat- 4g
          Cholesterol- 56mg
          Sodium- 37mg
          Carbohydrates- 4.6g
          Dietary Fiber- 3.6g
          Net Carbs- 1g
          Protein- 5g

          You can omit them, however, it may come out better to substitute something, maybe with a crushed nut, if you can have them. I tried this for my mom who is allergic to flaxseeds and it still came out great. Ground almonds should be exactly the same, as long as they are ground finely. Make sure to measure the coconut oil when liquified otherwise it may alter the amount measured.

          Let us know how it comes out if you give it a try! :)

            • Ry says

              Just finished making the bread. The taste is very nice, but it is quite dry. Would definitely need to double the recipe in order to us for sandwiches.

              • Lori, Health Extremist says

                Thanks for letting us know how it came out. Maybe try adding an extra tablespoon of coconut oil and apply coconut oil to the pan before pouring it in. Glad you liked the taste!

  28. says

    I just made this bread and me and my wife LOVE IT! We’ve been paleo since January 4th and are loving it! Does this recipe need to be refrigerated after cooking?!?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      So glad you like the recipe! I usually keep it out up to 2 to 3 days and after that keep it in the fridge.

  29. Anne says

    I really liked this recipe. I did use a full tsp of salt instead of 1/4tsp. I had the same issue with it being the texture of mashed potatoes. Also, the melted coconut oil ceased as soon as the cold eggs hit it. I ended up combining all the ingredients and heating them slowly in the microwave in order to melt the CO blobs. I’m not sure if having the eggs at room temp will help next time but I’m certainly open to figuring it out. Thanks!

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Glad you liked the recipe! That happens to me too! I usually just heat up a pot of water and put the bowl with ingredients into the pot for a few minutes to heat it up.

  30. Ariana says

    Thanks for this recipe. I just made it and I want to add my two cents.

    First, the consistency of the bread is SPOT ON. It sliced beautifully! However, it tastes so much like egg to me that I can’t eat it plain. I would like to use less egg but I suspect that is what’s giving it that wonderful consistency.
    I did enjoy the bread with some cream cheese. My daughter didn’t like it at all but she generally doesnt eat bread unless it’s sweet, so I’m not too surprised.

    When I was making it, I added the coconut oil to the (cold) eggs and the oil solidified. I fished out the chunks, threw them away, and added coconut oil I’d warmed in the microwave. Don’t know if anyone else had that problem.

    It was good overall, but I will probably continue to look for recipes, as the egg flavor bugged me. If I can’t find (a keto friendly) one, I may just skip bread altogether.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Thanks for sharing your results! Interesting that you found it to be too egg flavored, you could try substituting more oil and removing an egg or two, or some substitute applesauce for eggs if acceptable on your diet.

    • Tee Dee says

      On another site (Elana’s Pantry) a number of commenters asked about subbing something else for eggs since they don’t eat them, or are allergic. The most common sub was ground flax seed with water, since many didn’t want the extra carbs from using applesauce. Sorry, I don’t know the ratio for how much flax/water mix would be subbed for each egg, but I find the commenters on this site and others are a wealth of information for questions like these. I once had to sub some ground flax for one egg that I was short of and I remember using a couple of tablespoons plus enough water to make it gloopy, but not super liquidy and the bread still turned out great—all the best :)

  31. mike says

    how come none of these low carb recipes use water???? wouldnt it rise better if the dough was more hydrated?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Mike, the bread rises pretty well due to the reaction between the apple cider vinegar and baking soda, the coconut oil helps keep the bread very moist also.

  32. says

    Hi!
    I just made this bread today and it came out fantastic!
    Unlike other primal/paleo breads, this one did not come out flat!
    Though, I used rendered bacon fat in place for coconut oil..because bacon
    I also cut the almond flour to 1 cup because I’m stingy lol
    The whole bread is about 2100 calories, so 30 skinny slices = 70 calories per slice
    Thank you for the recipe!

  33. Elie says

    Definitely has a *wheat* taste to it. I double the recipe because I have a larger loaf pan. I’m glad I did because mine is still small. Tastes good, but it is not done cooling yet. Looks good! Thanks for the recipe. Have you ever experimented with using yeast? I need a good sandwich type bread and while this is good, it is very dense.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I’m glad it came out well! I haven’t experimented with yeast, mostly because I follow a yeast free diet, but if you can have yeast that would be a good addition to make it more bread like and rise much more.

  34. Dee says

    This looks great, will definitely give it a try. Do you think it would work if I made it into individual scones/biscuits instead of as a loaf? Maybe with a shorter cooking time….

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      That’s a great idea! I would probably cut the cooking time in half and keep checking it every 5 minutes to see when it is lightly browned.

  35. Michelle P says

    Hi,
    I’m making this recipe now and wanted to clarify on the chia or flax seeds…is it 1/4 Cup of already ground seeds, or should I meausure 1/4 cup of seeds and then grind them? I realized this could make a big difference in what I end up with so I wanted to make sure I get it right!
    Thanks!

  36. Nathan says

    Just made. It turned out super tasty!!! But it was a little crumbly. I was wondering if you have any tips as to make it more firm and stick together better? I’ve been reading the comments and I just don’t know where to go for next time.
    I did melt the coconut oil before spreading in. I’m thinking from what I read substituting less egg for some applesauce will give it what I’m needing. and I’m thinking actually more almond flour and maybe a fourth coconut flour.
    Thoughts and ideas?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Nathan, glad to hear it tasted well! Hmm..you could try adding a little more coconut oil or maybe a few tablespoons less of coconut flour. Did the bread have good moisture?

      • Nathan says

        Yes the moisture was very good. It was just very dense. Not light looking like your picture. Is it supposed to be that way or should it have a little more lightness and fluff to it?

        • Lori, Health Extremist says

          It should be a little bit fluffy, since the moisture is good, I would try using a little less coconut flour. Coconut flour is a heavier flour, that could be making it a little more dense. Maybe a few tablespoons or 1/4 cup less flour?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Could you substitute any other vinegars for it? If not possibly trying lemon juice. I’m not sure if this would affect the rise in the bread, because the reaction between the vinegar and baking soda helps the bread rise.

  37. Mia says

    Hi, this recipe sounds amazing, but I’m wondering if it can be successfully done using a bread maker? Has anyone tried it?

  38. ananka says

    I made this couple of thimes and absolutely loved it. One time I added garlic and basil to the batter along with using olive oil instead of coconut oil. It was fabulous. I also made it a little more like a dessert bread by adding a good a amount of cinnamon, a few drops of stevia and used coconut oil. I can’t imagine using this as bread for a sandwich, which I don’t eat anyway. I also found that adding about a teaspoon of guar gum makes it stick together better.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Thanks for pointing that out, it does come out pretty thick, more similar to mashed potatoes consistency.

      • Lea says

        Just put it in the oven, but that was my question it more like a cookie dough consistency and wondering if I did something wrong? It did not pour or glop into the baking pan! The size of the eggs was not specified and my eggs are very large farm eggs so I only used 4, but I don’t think 1 more would have made much of a difference. I am thinking that with some sweetener that it would make some great cookies or crackers as an alternative! 20 more minutes….

          • Lea says

            Hi Lori…just to let you know it turned out pretty good, maybe a little dry, but I found over a couple of days it became more moist?! (I had used butter instead of Coconut oil as I didn’t have any.) Since then I have made a Cinnamon Coconut Bread and Coconut Flour Crepes. The Cinnamon Bread had just the coconut flour and it separated the eggs with the whites beaten and for the Crepes I might put another egg into it to give it a bit more structure; but the Cinnamon Bread turned out pretty similar in texture and size to the Paleo Bread.
            Thank you for all the recipes, the information and your time. I am not a 100% Paleo but I am off the grains and really needed an alternative to Traditional Breads. So thankful you have helped fill this loss in my life! ;)

            A question for you about Quinoa; my understanding is that it is a seed high in protein, but most experts now are saying it is a grain. I seem to tolerate it fairly well and have used it instead of Almond Flour for some recipes.
            What does your research say and does the Paleo/Primal allow Quinoa?

  39. Klynn says

    Ok, have to say it came out good! I didn’t have a loaf pan so I made it in a muffin pan. It made 8 muffins. You do have to cook it less.

  40. Jen says

    I would like to make this for my son but he cannot have egg. Would you recommend using applesauce or egg replacer?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I have used applesauce to replace eggs in many other recipes and they always came out great! I haven’t tried it for this recipe but it should work just fine. Hope he enjoys the bread :)

  41. says

    Does this recipe require both Coconut Flour and Almond Flour? Also does it require both Apple cider vinegar as well as Coconut Oil?

    I cannot tell with the recipe whether you meant that you can use either or since its on the same line.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Hi Cindy, sorry about the confusing list, for some reason the format of the recipe ingredients changed. It is now fixed, the recipe includes both flours and both ACV and coconut oil.

  42. Karen says

    I’m so glad to have found this site, as I’m about to embark upon a wheat-free eating regimen. I would like to know if you could provide the nutritional information on this and other recipes? It would be helpful in planning my meals and menus. Thanks in advance and keep up the good work! :)

  43. jen says

    … this is closer to what I’m looking for :-) Doesn’t really hold together well enough for sandwich-type bread though. Mine is very yellow compared to your photo–probably my farm fresh eggs. All I want is something grain-free but with the same texture/taste as whole wheat bread–LOL!

  44. Karen says

    Can the 5 eggs be replaced by egg substitute (liquid eggs), either regular or ‘just whites’? I use them a lot when baking cakes & such; wondering how it would work with this bread recipe.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      I haven’t tried it myself. Fresh eggs are best ;) but, if you’re going to use a substitute, it should work fine.

  45. says

    Hi,
    I want to say thank you so much! This really is the best paleo bread recipe ever – it is delicious – works like a treat every time Ive been eating this now for 6 months and its never failed.

    My own additions are –
    line the tin with parchment – makes life easier.
    warm the coconut oil if it is solid at room temperature
    for linseed I use powdered sprouted linseed – works the same but much less fuss and is a much more readily nourishing substance – “Linuseed” from health food shops.

    Keep in the fridge – I eat half a loaf a week (this has completely done away with my need for conventional bread). Also freezes really beautifully! Great with loads of butter or olive oil.

    I use the recipe also as a vehicle to eat a lot of good nourishing seeds and nuts so I add to the recipe small handfuls of poppy, pumpkin, caraway and sunflower seeds and same of pistacheos – I also top the bread with flaked almonds , sunflower seeds and sesame seeds – looks great – tastes great – is incredibly nourishing.

    Also – this bread has been at the centre of a broader low carb diet that Ive been doing for six months – I have got rid of nearly all excess body fat, love my diet, sorted out my decade long digestive problems and have gone from a 38″ jeans fit to 34″ I can now wear favourite 20 year old suit and nice slim fit jeans. Im nearly 60 and look and feel good.

    Although the broader low carb approach is what really helped me to achieve this, finding a really nourishing alternative to conventional bread made it all possible.

    • says

      paleo bread ricipe – Oh also for those who worry about the consistancy – when you initially mix all dry and wet ingredients together it is very liquid and runny but the linseed then does its work and within a minute or so the mix thickens up into a wet but much more solid sticky dough.

      Also I can say that I have a very acurate modern oven and find the times and temps work perfectly – though’ when Ive missed the timer I have left the paleo bread in the oven a little longer occasionally I still get a good result (it toasts up my seed and nut topping nicely) So I usually go for 180 C (350 F) for 50mins sometimes when I’m not paying attention 60 mins.

  46. says

    Almond is rich in health promoting fats. Also it improves complexion, improved movement of food through the colon and prevents cancer. Good mixer of ingredients. Simple, healthy & tasty. Thanks for the share!!

  47. Laura Veltkamp says

    Hi Lori, I just tried this recipe last night, the mix turned quite dry when combined, and barely rose at all… not at all like the picture :( Desperately trying to find a bread recipe that works, yesterday my husband just ate your blueberry muffins which were really good but only a short term fix. Any suggestions?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      Sorry to hear it didn’t turn out well. Hmm..Did you make any substitutions? Did you measure the coconut oil when melted?

  48. Jackie says

    Hi! I just made this bread an I am so happy! I’ve been on a strict anti-candida diet and have been really craving some type of alternative freshly baked bread. This recipe (unlike many paleo recipes, unfortunately) is truly sugar free, includes only approved ingredients and is delicious! Thanks for your perfecting and sharing of it. :)

  49. Juanita says

    Help! The batter is so thick, it wouldn’t pour if I turned the bowl upside down! I followed everything to a tee, no substitutions. What am I doing wrong?

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It should be thick, similar to the consistency of mashed potatoes. It should come out just fine.

      • Juanita says

        It came out like a brick???? Really coarse ..I’m new to almond and coconut flour..is it supposed to be like eating sawdust? Please help..I have food allergies and severe candida.. I need to find some bread I can eat and make a sandwich out of

  50. Kate says

    Any idea how this would hold up for a few days without refrigeration? I need a gluten free bread (preferably paleo) to bring along on an upcoming trip I have to do for work. It’s overseas in a country where celiac disease isn’t well-known so I’m planning to bring a lot of my food with me. Thought this would be a good addition if it can hold up for 3-4 days without spoiling or developing mold…

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      It should be fine to keep out for a few day. Many paleo bread companies and gluten free companies ship bread after they bake it and it remains unrefrigerated for several days.

  51. Buffie Brown says

    I am making both the banana muffins as well as the bread. The muffins nor the bread poured into the pan?? I followed both to the letter.. just took out muffins. they don’t look they smoothed out at all. but haven’t tasted yet.. I just put the bread in the oven. we shall see…

    • lea says

      I have made this recipe many dif ways. ..the coconut flour is extremely dense and will act like a sponge with wet ingredients. Someimes I use a combination of almond, quinoa and just a little coconut flour, BUT I always have to add some almond milk or coconut milk 1/4 to 1/2 cup to make a perfect smooth batter and it rises well this way too. could be our climate here but that bit of liquid made all the difference!

      Lea

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      The batter should come out fairly thick, similar to the consistency of mashed potatoes. Hope you enjoy the muffins!

  52. says

    This is a really good recipe. I’ve gone low carb, high fat, and whilst it’s put a spring in my step, I have missed a couple of things. Today I had toast for breakfast thanks to this recipe and it was effing lovely. Looking forward to trying some variations with different seeds etc.

    • Lori, Health Extremist says

      The olive oil should work just fine. The reaction between the baking soda and baking soda helps the bread to rise, so it may not be as fluffy without it. Let us know if you give it a try!

  53. Katie says

    In the directions, it says after mixing the ingrediens, you pour the mixture into the bread pan. After mixing the ingredients, mine was the consistency of cookie dough and it was very sticky. I followed the directions to a T. Any idea as to what I could have done wrong here?

    • Lori Klein says

      That’s right, it should be more of a cookie dough/mashed potato consistency. I will change the description since it doesn’t really pour.
