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.

I just want to thank you for all your delicious recipes! I’ve made so many over the past few years, including this paleo bread recipe more times than I can count. They all turn out perfectly and deliciously. Thank you so much for your site — I love it!

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. Can this be made in 2 smaller size loaf pans instead of 1 large one? I want to have freezing ability. Plus, I love the idea of being able to slice it from the mini pan length-wise to create long tartine style slices for open face sandwiches.

    • Laura, thanks for your comment! I haven’t tried that so not sure. If you experiment I hope you’ll let me know how it goes :-)

      • Christy, this is what happens when the loaf pan you use is larger than the one called for in the recipe. If you click on the link in the instructions portion of the recipe you will find the loaf pan called for in this recipe :-)

    • Lola, if you go to step 3 of the recipe and click the words “fox run pan” you will be given that info :-)

  2. I’ve made this bread many, many times — sometimes exactly as the recipe says and sometimes with different variations. One of my recent favorite variations is replacing the flaxmeal with an equal amount of seeds: sunflower, chia, sesame, poppy, etc. It adds a really delicious crunch! I also usually add the 1 tablespoon of coconut oil from the older version of the recipe as well. Thanks for such a great versatile recipe, Elana!

  3. Made this today. It taste great even after I messed up the recipe. I had all my ingredients out, and arrowroot powder, I wasn’t sure which bread I was going to make. I grabbed the arrowroot powder instead of the baking soda. I was putting the ingredients away when I realized my mistake. Bread had been in the oven about 5 minutes, took it out and added the bs. The bread still turned out great. A big THANK YOU Elana for your recipes. I have all 3 of your cookbooks and followed the paleo bread recipes with the coconut oil and honey.

  4. Help! I followed your recipe for scrumptious almond flour sandwich bread from your book. It did not rise. Tastes good but wont do for slicing and making sandwiches. 2 in high. Any suggestions?

  5. Trying out your paleo bread, don’t have a food processor so mine is dry when mixing the ingredients together (since there is no liquid mentioned just apple cider vinegar and eggs). I guess I’ll have to add some liquid until it comes together to make a batter.

    • Katherine, thanks for your comment! The 5 eggs is quite a lot of liquid, this recipe will likely not work with any additional :-)

      • Hi! I’m excited to try you recipe as I am on a lifestyle journey and I am drastically changing the foods I eat. I only have a glass loaf pan…would that work until I can get one of your recommend pans?

        • Kristi, thanks for your comment! You will need to use the same size pan called for in the recipe. If you use a bigger pan (like a standard sized glass loaf pan) the batter won’t fill it and instead of a loaf of bread it will be flat like a little cake :-)

    • Tiffaniee, thanks for your comment! That won’t work. I do have one amazing egg-free recipe for a chocolate cupcake in my book Gluten-Free Cupcakes:

      It’s very challenging to create grain-free baked goods without eggs since they provide the necessary structure, but that cupcake recipe is amazing!
