Almond Flour Bread Recipe

Recommended Posts

http://www.elanaspantry.com/gluten-free-bread-20/

I made this bread last week. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it because it tastes very much like flax seeds, but after a few days it really grew on me. It's delicious toasted and with almond butter. It's really hearty/thick and actually has a bread consistency! Who could tell that it didn't have wheat in it? I sliced it and put it in the freezer. When I need a slice, I just take it out and toast it. So if you like the taste of flax seeds, you'll definitely like this recipe. Hope you enjoy! I'm making it again next week! :D

I just printed it out, Jessica! It sounds yummy...and I love flax seeds!

I have almond meal/flour. Wonder if that's the same thing? I don't have a bread pan that small though. What size did you use?

I love all of her recipes! She says you can't use Bob's Red Mill Almond meal in place of almond flour. But I break the rules...if I am out of NutsOnline Almond flour I sub Bob's Red Mill. Might change the consistency a little, but not enough to bother me. Almond meal and almond flour are the same thing, but Bob's is just a little coarser than most. Works for me.

I only have Bob's Red Mill but haven't used any of it yet. Wonder if I could grind it a little finer in my larger coffee mill (it's not used for coffee)

I used Bob's Red Mill without a problem in this recipe, although I don't remember what size bread pan I used (I think it was maybe a little larger than she suggested). Head's up - the bread doesn't rise very much, but it still tasted great!

Good! The only bread pan I was thinking of that would be smaller would be one of the cheap aluminum disposable ones.

I'm going to try this this weekend :)

Would it be ok to use potato starch or tapioca in place of arrowroot?

Since I don't have arrowroot, I'd have to substitute it for something. I was originally thinking of cornstarch. I absolutely have to stop buying all these flours/starches! I'm becoming a flour junkie. :P

I know what you mean. I'm trying to use up what I have.

I don't use cornstarch because of having had a bad reaction to it, but I'm pretty sure either potato starch or tapioca flour would be ok to substitute for arrowroot.
