Cranberry Almond Bread


This Paleo Cranberry Almond Bread recipe is packed with nuts and dried fruit and is my own healthy gluten-free version of muesli bread.

Studded with dried apricots and cranberries, as well as crunchy bites of almonds, and sunflower, pumpkin, and sesame seeds, this easy gluten-free bread recipe is a fabulous every day bread, but also great for special occasions. Many fans tell me that they serve this as an Easter bread or as a healthy Christmas fruitcake. Made with low-carb almond butter, this is a flourless bread recipe that can be thrown together in just a few minutes!

We slice this Cranberry Almond Bread and enjoy it as a jazzed up base for Turkey Club Sandwiches. We also love it toasted and dipped in olive oil, with a side of eggs, for a delicious paleo breakfast. Personally, I like Cranberry Almond Bread toasted and smothered in my homemade goat cheese.

I developed this Paleo Cranberry Almond Bread for the Almond Board of California to promote healthy and delicious eating. I’m working with the Almond Board because I love almonds. They are a superfood and of course one of my favorite things to nibble on. In fact, I like almonds so much that I wrote an entire book about them, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook which uses almonds in all of its recipes!

Here are some of my other paleo bread recipes that use almonds for you:

  1. I just made this bread today and it came out amazing!!! Like I couldn’t believe I just used peanut butter and a bunch of ingredients without any flour at all ( like almond or coconut flour)…I did not use arrowroot powder but still it came out so fine! Thanks so much for this recipe, I am trying to cut wheat out of my diet and sometimes I miss having eggs and avocado on toast, so this recipe would do nicely ;) Do you know the calories by any chance? I measured my ingredients out and tried to estimate the calories roughly.

  2. Everything is very tasty. But it has become very expensive to bake with nut flour. Prices have skyrocketed. I recently bought raw almonds and am going to make my own.

    • Karen, thanks for your comment and I totally agree. Unfortunately I haven’t had any success using homemade almond flour in my recipes.

  3. Eating Paleo is expensive! When I look at the ingredients at all these grain free recipes, I cringe at the cost!

  4. I am going to attempt to make this year’s Mardi Gras King Cake with an alternative flour like almond flour or coconut flour. Has anyone tried to make a King Cake like this? It’s a yeast cake, and requires two risings.
