*throws hands up in TRIUMPH!*

Yesterday I found the coolest recipe for bread at Elana’s Pantry.   If you can eat eggs, go, you must go try it.  The bread is springy, holds together and  is ridiculously easy to make (Just make sure to beat your eggs until they are really pale yellow, and don’t use Bob’s Redmill almond flour unless you don’t mind re-grinding in in a coffee mill, or get almond flour from Rainbow Foods).

Now, if you are like me and can’t have eggs either,  Elana’s bread presents a challenge.  I’ve been baking loaf after loaf trying to figure this out, and I think I am almost there.  I did  a variation – and, while it doesn’t rise super high, its absolutely delicious. 


Gluten Free Yeast Free Vegan Paleo Bread (

My gut doesn’t seem to like grains of any kind, but using almond flour seems to work really well- its super low in sugars.  This bread is high in protein, springy, and tastes terrific.  There’s no weird beany or grainy aftertaste,  no gritty rice feeling in your mouth.  Just absolute springy chewy, terrific slice after slice.  And it doesn’t get dry the next day!!

Most gluten free breads are kinda gross day two. If you don’t eat them hot, they turn to rocks.

Not this bread. Nope. Its awesome.

Now, I consider it still a work in progress, though.  It doesn’t rise as high as I want it to, and I am trying to figure that out. But, hey, it tastes delicious, its easy to make, and if you are experimenting with it please let me know how it goes.

 Trust me, if you are on a candida diet, or have diabetes, the site of high protein, low sugar, yeast-free bread is a desperately welcome wonder to behold.


And thats all I gotta say.  So check out the recipe below…


Eaat! So yummy with almond butter and Rhubarb-Orange Butter, or a little softened Nutella,  or dip it in Roasted Eggplant Dip,  maybe a little Red Pepper Hummus, or make a sandwich with some Roasted Red Peppers or quick Eggplant Antipasto and your choice of fillings…

I bet it would even make terrific vegan french toast! Oh man. I haven’t had french toast in ages…

    Hi Shannon!
    You can try regular vinegar or even lemon juice, both should work decently :)

    Oh My goodness! This is the first bread I’ve made that doesn’t crumble! It also toasts very nicely without falling apart! I haven’t had toast for breakfast in so long because of that reason, but was able to have it this morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    This bread is fantastic! Made two loaves on Sunday and it’s still great today (though not a lot left because it’s so yummy). Since eliminating yeast and wheat from my diet, it has been hard to find yummy recipes. This one hit the mark! Thank you:)

    awww you,re welcome! and give me a shout anytime if you need any help- make sure to use smaller bread pans so you can get better height on the bread :D xo alea

    no problem at all Leahbeth! ask away :) you’ll be best to use almond flour (or throw some blanched almonds in a coffee grinder, works well). The natural oils in the flour help hold the bread together.
    happy baking!

    Thank you:)) That does help…For the Almond flour can I use the almond pulp? Or should I purchase almond flour?
    Sorry for all the questions..just want to make sure I do it right

    hi there Leah!

    Tapioca powder and tapioca starch are i think the same thing, so you should be safe :)
    For the leftover pulp from almond milk, i spread it on a cookie sheet and let it dry in the oven at low heat- later i use it like breadcrumbs for stuff like ‘fried’ chicken or eggplant :) hope that helps!

    Hi, I’m really excited to try this…
    Can you use Tapioca powder instead of starch or are they the same thing?
    I only have the tapioca powder..I have everything else.
    Also, do you use the left over pulp from making almond milk? Asking because
    I learned that when you make almond milk, the pulp losses a lot of the
    natural oil so not sure if that would make a difference or not?

    THANK YOU! I’ve been longing to try Elana’s almond bread but can’t have eggs–you totally nailed it, a new staple for me as I’m learning I can’t tolerate grains very well (along with gluten, yeast, eggs….as you know the list can be long). Blessings!
