Amazing Gluten Free Sandwich Bread

I recently found this recipe in a cookbook entitled, ‘The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.” If you, like me, are trying to eliminate starchy grains from your diet (and have the desire to eliminate that inflammation thing called ‘gluten’), then this recipe is for you!  I cannot recommend the entire cookbook enough for people who are trying to change their Americanized diet — the diet that is killing so many of us.

The ingredient list is easy – nutritious – and simply wonderful.  It makes a wonderful piece of toast and its texture is comforting to those of us who miss wheat bread.  It holds together well and best of all?  It has no yeast — no rising required!  It should be called a miracle bread.

Scrumptious Sandwich Bread

3/4 cup creamy roasted almond butter at room temp.

4 large eggs

1/4 cup blanched almond flour

1/4 cup arrowroot powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 T ground flax meal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 7 x 3 inch loaf pan.  (I use olive oil or grapeseed oil.)  Dust with almond flour.  Mix almond butter with handheld mixer until smooth.  Blend in eggs.  Mix dry ingredients together and blend mixture into wet ingredients until well-blended.  Bake 40-45 minutes until knife inserted in middle comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 30 min.

Don’t try to make this in a bigger pan.  It needs this size pan to bake properly.  Besides, the reality is that we shouldn’t be eating huge slices of bread anyway!  But now I can enjoy bread again.  It is virtually grain-free!  You’ll wish you made 2 loaves instead of one. 🙂
