Almond Bread

Everyone talks about how hard it is to go gluten / casein free. I am going to try to avoid saying that. It's different....but we aren't suffering. Not at all.

Check out the almond bread I made last night (recipe courtesy of that awesome, experienced GFCF mom I visited last week. She made some for me to try and I loved it!)


1 1/2 cup non-blanched almond flour (I had already purchased blanched so I used it and it worked but the recipe recommends non-blanched almond flour because it adds more moisture and makes it taste more "wholegrain")

3/4 cup tapioca starch (same as tapioca flour)

1/4 cup ground flax seed

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

4 eggs

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup oil

1/2- 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl. In larger bowl, beat eggs for several minutes. Stir sugar and vinegar in with eggs and then mix the dry ingredients in. Pour half of the batter into a well greased bread loaf pan and sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Pour the other half in and sprinkle on top with more cinnamon and sugar.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool, slice and enjoy!

The smell was incredible and it had the kids and hubby begging to skip the cooling part of the directions. We sliced it up warm and it was DELICIOUS!

It's great cooled with some GFCF "butter" on it, too. In fact, I'm having a piece now with my breakfast. Definitely not suffering.

  1. I need to show Chuck your food pictures. Maybe that alone will motivate him! OK, you've done a lot of research GFCF. Have you run across anything with the poo-ing problems? They're related to gluten/casein aren't they?
