Breaking the rules. Paleo Inspired bread.

I don't like to follow the rules. But I am big into suggestions. I follow Paleo, but not perfectly. I just believe in: "whats good for me", and always making healthy choices.  I also believe in taking the time to go on a stay-cation and throw it all out the window too. Because that's just good for the soul!

I had to up date my favorite Paleo bread. I did it by breaking a Paleo rule (gasp! call the Paleo police). Yup, guilty. By using only egg whites and even substituting raw honey for honey substitute! The end result is actually a lighter, softer and less dense bread. This became a lovely soft moist loaf. It even rose a little more than before. I am pleased with this loaf for sure

  • 3/4  almond butter, smooth
  • ¾ cup + 3 tablespoons of liquid egg whites
  • 2 tbsp sugar free honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup golden flax, ground
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Blend all your wet ingredients until smooth.
Mix dry ingredients in another bowl.
Slowly mix dry into wet.
Pour into a lined loaf pan. Grease your paper with coconut oil well.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. At 35 minutes check, over baking egg based bread can tend to burn quickly.

After it's cooled keep in sealed container in refrigerator. Yields 24 thin slices (great for snacking) or 12 regular slices (easier to toast).
