Let's Get This (Paleo) Bread
When I first decided to go keto, one of the foods I missed the most was definitely bread. I missed the convenience of making a sandwich, comfort foods like garlic bread, and of course avocado toast (I am a millennial, after all). I was always wary of trying keto bread recipes, as they usually contained ingredients that didn’t make me feel great, tasted very “eggy”, and were overall pretty disappointing taste-wise. But then I encountered Lilsipper’s Erewhon Paleo Bread Re-Make. This recipe had rave reviews on Instagram so I decided to give it a try. Bethany did an amazing job of recreating this recipe using easy ingredients that you probably have on hand, and the bread comes together so quickly! Needless to say, I’m hooked! I only made one tweak to her recipe to make it more keto friendly, but I highly recommend checking out her blog for lots of paleo, keto, gut-friendly recipes! She’s a total rockstar. Here is the recipe I followed for the bread:
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp coconut flour
¼ cup flaxmeal
1 tsp sea salt
¾ cup almond butter
1½ Tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetened Maple Flavored Syrup (Sugar Free)
1. Mix all ingredients in a stand or electric mixer until well combined.
2. Pour batter into a standard bread loaf pan lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
I love toasting this bread and topping it with smashed avocado, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic powder, pink salt, and crushed red pepper flakes.
I also love topping it with organic baby spinach and tuna salad. For the tuna salad I mix together:
1/2 can Safecatch elite wild tuna (less mercury than albacore and sustainably fished)
1 Tbsp Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo (made with avocado oil)
1 tsp whole grain mustard (I love the kind from Trader Joe’s)
Juice of 1/2 a lime or lemon
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of pink salt
Dash of pepper
Another favorite topping combo is almond butter, organic berries, and cinnamon! What are your favorite toast toppings? Let me know in the comments because I always love trying new combinations!
