The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook
When I first published this recipe in July 2009, the boys and I were baking together all the time
We were in the midst of a summer full of baseball, jumping on the trampoline, bowling, board games, and walks to the creek.
They were also helping me get work done for the launch of my first book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook which has sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Many refer to it as the “Almond Flour Cookbook”.

Amy Jean says
I know you do not like changing your recipes, bc they are tested so many times, but is there a possibility to use 1 cup flax meal & 1 cup almond flour?
Amy, I haven’t tried that, but I don’t think it will work :-)
Beth H says
Hi, I have golden flaxmeal, can that be interchanged for the black flaxmeal?
I have issues with almond flour, so hoping that I can try this.
Thank you in advance
Beth, I haven’t tried that so not sure –if you do I hope you’ll let me know if it works!
I made this recipe with golden flax and it turned out great!
I love this bread! I’ve made it several times – I top it with a sprinkling of Everything Bagel seasoning. I’ve even given loaves to friends and family and everyone loves it. So great to have a gluten free NUT FREE option that actually tastes like bread, and feels like bread. This is akin to a dark pumpernickle IMO. Thank you Elana! I’ve tried many of your recipes and love them all.
Barbara, thanks for your comment and for letting me know everyone loves this bread!
Elana, this flax bread is DELICIOUS!!! I am someone who had to avoid grain carbs for quite a while, due to pre-diabetes, so breads were a very rare treat. When I was recently diagnosed with kidney stones, I had to adopt a low oxalate nutrition plan. Flax bread fits perfectly! I made this bread today. It was completely easy to make, and an absolute pleasure to eat. I encrusted the top of the loaf with unsalted sunflower seeds. I am very thankful for having found your wonderful recipe. Thank you for sharing it!
Heidi, I’m so glad this is DELICIOUS and am also happy to hear it’s helping you stick to your nutrition plan :-)
Heather W. says
We LOVE this recipe used as our bagels. We mix it all, add 1 cup of water, remix, and fill 12 silicone doughnut molds. I sprinkle some with Everything Bagel spice and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
Heather, what a great idea!
Heather I would love to try this as bagels do you use an additional cup of water?
Would this be an additional cup of water to the 1/2 cup in the recipe?
Nina Gilmour says
Hi there, I’m making your nut-free keto bread and the consistency is quite wet. Is that right? Thanks!
Nina, that sounds about right :-)
Have you tried chia eggs instead of chicken eggs? I can’t have egg white.
Bonnie, I haven’t tried that :-)
I just tried the nut free keto bread recipe and it came out great. I was looking for the nutrition information and followed your link to the cookbooks but only found the paleo version which has sugar according to the nutrition info. Do you have different NI for the keto version?
Barbara, I provide nutrition info for all of the recipes in my cookbooks :-)
Can we use golden flax instead..of brown?
Bernie, I think it will work but not really sure since I haven’t tried that :-)
Brad Richards says
We only use the golden flaxseed and it comes out great! Trader Joes sells bags of toasted golden flaxseeds, and it adds a nice mild nutty flavor. Grinding them is easy in a bullet or ninja or blender. Great recipe, Elana!
Can you freeze this bread (I’m thinking sliced and pulling it for toast)?
Yael, I haven’t tried that with this bread but I’m betting it would work :-)
