When first giving up gluten and grains a few years ago, I never really craved “bready” things. Thinking that any paleo-ified bread alternatives available would be too dense hunks of cardboard with no flavor, that I would be essentially choking down for the sake of saying I had a sandwich. The thought alone squelched any hint of a craving. But after trying the Simple Mills boxed Paleo Loaf, which is delicious and I highly recommend, I realized that there was no reason I could not create a similar bread that was light, flavorful, and just as delicious. And so I came up with this super easy copycat recipe. Because as much as I love the Simple Mills mix, $8 per box is just a bit too steep for me. Especially after developing a massive avocado toast habit shortly after realizing that delicious Paleo breads can exist. Plus, making it at home is better for the planet as it reduces packaging waste! Wins all around.
This recipe is really so easy. It takes about 5 minutes to mix up, in just one bowl, and has only 10 ingredients. It does require a bit of forethought as it takes 1 hour to bake. But it’s really worth the wait. This bread is amazing as toast or a sandwich. And if you need further proof of how good this really is, even my starchitarian husband loves it. He recognizes the smell as he walks in the door and happily takes a slice (or 4) as soon as I cut into it.
paleo friendly (gluten/grain/dairy free), sugar free, yeast free
