Paleo Bread

This easy Paleo Bread recipe tastes great and is made with just 7 nutrient dense ingredients. That’s a good thing because “gluten-free” isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread. That’s why I created a gluten-free paleo bread recipe that’s made of high-protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging. I’m loving every slice that comes from this new paleo diet friendly bread recipe.

Paleo Bread Recipe

This bread is just a bit lighter and fluffier than my other breads. It has a nice nutty flavor from the flax meal which reminds me a little bit of a whole wheat bread. And, it has a lovely little bit of a sweet buttery taste from the almond flour, which adds an incredibly rich quality to baked goods.

Substitutions for Paleo Bread

I’ve been working on this Paleo Bread recipe for several months and have tested it a couple of dozen times. In fact, every time I create a recipe I test each and every ingredient addition or subtraction. That’s why I think it’s kinda funny when people leave comments below recipes (or on Instagram) asking how such and such ingredient substitution will turn out.

Experimenting with Paleo Bread

I wish we didn’t have to test every adjustment to a recipe to figure out if it works. It would save us all so much time and money! If I only had a crystal ball that would give me the answer to all of your substitution questions, I would be so happy. Unfortunately, I don’t. So be adventurous. If you have an idea, test it. Then come back here and let us all know if it works.

Low-Carb Bread

I’ve updated this Paleo Bread recipe to reflect the way we now make it. If you would like to make the original recipe, just add one tablespoon coconut oil and one tablespoon honey. The bread is fantastic either way!

How To Store Paleo Bread

To store this easy Paleo Bread, wrap in a paper towel, seal in a plastic bag, and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

This gluten-free bread recipe is based on my Bread 2.0. However, this bread does not contain arrowroot so it is a better low-carb bread recipe. Paleo Bread has a fabulous nutrition profile that has more of the healthy protein and fat that we all need! Here are some of my other healthy paleo recipes:

  1. Hello, I’ve been making your bread for years and years. I was wondering what the carb content was. I do not see that listed on some of your recipes. I’m also wondering for the almond meal biscuits. Thank you

    • Vivien,
      Our family has sensitivity issues. I left out the flax, subbed with almond flour (making the total 2 1/4c, and it turned out great. Who knows what it’s supposed to tastes or feel like because our family enjoys the bread with the substitution!

    • Roger, I slice it then wrap each slice in a small piece of parchment then place in a sealed plastic bag. Will last for 4-6 weeks when stored this way :-)

    • Beverly, I haven’t tried that so not sure, but can tell you that flax eggs haven’t ever worked in my baked goods recipes when I have experimented, probably because they are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. LMK if it works for you :-)

  2. I was so excited to have some bread….today :( but my bread didn’t come out well. The raw batter was stiff and like concrete going into the pan and it did not rise to have a smooth surface like the one pictured. I anticipate it will be terribly dense to eat. I have verified all ingredients but I did deviate slightly with the addition of 1 T. psyllium husk powder. Do you think that might have done it? I can only guess it was my bad and that I could have trusted the original recipe to hold together well enough without it.

  3. I used to eat it before I changed my lifestyle [plant based/vegan] due to my health. Do you have a vegan recipe for this one? Thanks.

  4. Hi Elana,

    I’ve been looking for non-toxic bakeware. I see you have linked to the magic loaf pan which is aluminum. My understanding is that aluminum cookware (even thought its not supposed to leech) can be toxic. Can you shed some light on this?

    • Nadia, thanks for your comment. I do try to avoid aluminum bakeware, that’s why the glass option is listed in the instructions portion of the recipe :-)
