Any paleo/primal 'bread' recipe

I was wondering if there was a primal/paleo sweet potato 'bread' recipe out there. I saw a recipe for potato bread, figured you could substitute sweet potato, and use almond flour instead of regular flour, honey for the sugar.
I think I may try it, who knows. Anyone have any experience with this?

btw, here's the link for the potato bread recipe:

For some reason, the breads i make with flaxseed meal, smell and taste weird, almost "fishy" Anyone had a similar experience?

Interesting! You've encouraged me to look into it further. And again, I haven't actually tried the recipe and in the last three years, I've probably had a total of maybe 4 tablespoons of arrowroot powder. ;)

Unfortunately I don't do arrowroot. I honestly don't think there's enough research done on this starch to tell us that it's truly safe, or just safer than corn starch. Same for xantham gum and tapioca.

That's not quite what the text says - it says that for every 1/2 cup of coconut flour, use 4 eggs. That's in order to use 100% coconut flour in a recipe, otherwise they suggest to cut the coconut flour with other non-gluten flours.

You might know this already, but potatoes are added to white bread for texture and flavor reasons, not for any alternative dietary reasons (unless the recipe is also gluten-free). White potatoes are more "gluey" than sweet potatoes so along with substituting something for refined wheat flour, you've got a completely different product on your hands. Could be tasty though, if texturally weird. If you're new at tweaking recipes, prepare for a lot of experimentation. Personally, after years of messing with converting recipes to veg*an/"healthy", I no longer find it worth the trouble.

I haven't tried these yet, and they look like a bit of work to me, but if you do dairy, this recipe for burger buns looks really easy and had a lot of positive comments: http://blog.yourlighterside.com/2009/05/gluten-free-low-carb-buns-aka-oopsie.html Basically just eggs, cream cheese, and some cream of tartar. Supposedly you can use vinegar or lemon juice instead of the cream of tartar, but that might create too much liquid for this recipe.

We do our burgers on half of a portobella mushroom, I saw it on everyday paleo. Two mushroom "buns" was too much but one catches the drippings and is a yummy complement. The gills hold the juice.

The cauliflower version is delicious too, but I found it seems like a lot more work because you have to cook, drain and then cool the cauliflower first. It's worth a try if you've got the time though!

Jake- not very for me. It's a bit dry and crumbly, but it is rather tasty. I added some vanilla and shredded coconut to it to make a dessert bread for my husband, and he loved it topped with whipped cream. It's super easy to make though.

Here's my best effort at recreating "neolithic shit food!"

any-paleo/primal-'bread'-recipe

Ingredients:

?? cup sifted TIANA Organic Coconut Flour ?? cup Organic Virgin RPO (red palm oil) 6 eggs 1 tablespoon raw unfiltered honey ?? teaspoon sea salt Pinch tumeric and cayenne 1 tbsp Sriracha hot Thai chili sauce 1 teaspoon aluminum-free gluten-free baking powder 1 tbsp bacon fat (see Get That Bacon Fat)

Combine eggs eggs, RPO, honey, Sriracha, cayenne, tumeric and salt. Combine coconut flour with baking powder and sift into wet ingredients. Mix until smooth.

Pour the batter into the bread dish and bake for 40 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool before removing.

Wait, what's that? Bone marrow?

any-paleo/primal-'bread'-recipe

Ingredients:

5 3" pieces beef marrow bones 1 bunch organic Italian parsley (chopped) 2 cloves garlic (sliced) 1 tbsp lemon juice Organic extra virgin olive oil 3 small organic radishes (sliced) Sea salt and fresh ground pepper Garlic infused ghee Toast (I used leftovers from my coconut Red Bread recipe)

Not bread exactly, but similar... After making juice in my juicer, I make carrot and zuchinni pizza crusts, which taste quite similar to whole wheat crust. Maybe it can be adapted to bread?

  • Zuchinni and carrot pulp from juicer
  • 1 egg
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Spices (basil, oregano)

I mix them together and then form them into pizza crusts on a non-stick baking sheet, then bake them at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes. Afterwards, I top them with pizza toppings and bake some more.

I'm sure you could just skip the pizza toppings and modify the shape a bit to make more of a bread-like loaf.

I have tried a number of bread recipes and this one is by far the best if you are looking for honest to goodness bread. You can actually toast it and make and sandwich on it. Many other recipes I have tried end up being more like a desert or pound cake. If you are going to make the loaf size, I would suggest using half the salt in the recipe.

Original Here

For Muffin-sized:

1/3 cup Arrowroot Powder

?? cup Flaxseed Meal

1 Egg

1 Egg White

1 Tbsp Walnut Oil

?? tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp Baking Powder

?? tsp Cider Vinegar or Coconut Vingear

Coconut Oil Spray (or other oil will do ??? for the tins/pan)

For Loaf-sized:

1 ?? cup Arrowroot Powder

1 cup Flaxseed Meal

4 Eggs

4 Egg Whites

4 Tbsp Walnut Oil

2 tsp Sea Salt

4 tsp Baking Powder

2 tsp Cider Vinegar or Coconut Vingear

Coconut Oil Spray (or other oil will do ??? for the tins/pan)

Add all ingredients to a Bullet. Mix thoroughly. Spray your muffin tins (I actually use small glass bowls and place them on a baking sheet, but tins will do) or bread loaf pan down with the oil. Bake the muffins at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. (For the loaf, should be about 30-35 minutes).

Guys, all these recipes look DELICIOUS! Thank you! Finally, no more 'bun'less burgers!

Btw, if you want a GREAT BURGER PATTY recipe, take 3 lbs chuck, 3 lbs sirloin, 1/3-1/2 lb bacon, grind it all together, add a beat egg as binding agent, little salt, little pepper, dash of cumin and tunmeric: PRESTO! Best.Burger.Ever.

Sisson's site has more than a couple "bread" options. here are two i copied from his site:

This first one i warn you is not really a "bread" IMO, but it sure is full of healthy stuff and a great breafast on the fly ive found:

Pesto Spinach Bread

Ingredients:

  • Five large eggs
  • 16 oz frozen spinach, thawed, cut, and drained
  • Butter
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • Small bunch of basil (about 15 leaves)

Method: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your glass baking dish with butter. I used a circular pan about 8 inches in diameter. Mix your eggs, garlic, basil, and spinach together in a mixing bowl. Add some salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Pour it evenly into your greased pan. Pop it in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until it has set. Slice and enjoy as if it were bread, or all by itself!

This next one is much closer to a quickloaf-style bread that you might be thinking of:

Coconut Bread

Slightly sweet and fairly light (as opposed to the denser breads made with almond meal), this coconut bread should do the trick.

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cups ghee (or butter)
  • 1-2 tablespoon honey (depending on taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Method: Preheat your oven to 350. Whisk it all together, or blend in a food processor until all lumps are gone. Grease a bread pan with butter or coconut oil and pour your batter in. Bake for 40 minutes. If we split it up into six servings each slice will, according to FitDay, have: 30.9 g fat 13.2 g carbs (9 g fiber) 8.35 g protein

I tried a new recipe, posted below: (and here)

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour.

2 tablespoons coconut flour.

1/4 cup golden flaxseed meal

1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

5 eggs

1/4 cup coconut oil (i used olive oil)

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (i used regular vinegar)

Place almond flour, coconut flour, flax, salt and baking soda in a food processor. Pulse ingredients together. Pulse in eggs, oil, honey and vinegar. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes (or 180 °C) Cool and serve.

The result?

Unfortunately, the picture showed a more promising result, but my bread did not come out as high risen. Maybe I used the wrong loaf pan (silicone loaf pan) and was my loaf pan too big.

Also I find the smell a bit strange and quite strong, but perhaps that could come from the olive oil I used instead of the coconut oil, or the different vinegar.

The taste was a bit on the sweet side, since I had my lunch with tuna, a boiled egg, tomato & some mixed salad.

I tried a recipe as well, containing linseed flour, but i must have gone wrong somewhere. The bread came out more like a cake, but most of all, it has a bitterlike aftertaste. This was the recipe:

Ingredients • 2/3 cup flax meal. • 1/3 cup almond meal. • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder. • Pepper to taste. • Salt to taste. • Approximately 3 tsp olive oil or coconut oil. • 2 eggs. • Water to make the batter pourable. Directions

  1. In mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, beat eggs together. Oil loaf pan. Mix all ingredients and pour batter into the loaf pan.

  2. 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes until baked thru-out.

Picture available on my site.

Holy moley I just made Oopsie rolls for the first time this morning to satisfy out a serious french toast craving (mmm butter and sugar free syrup), and they were fantastic!

I have trouble imagining them holding up to a juicy burger and nor do I really miss bread any other time, but they were perfect for french toast.

It says eggs are a substitute for gluten, if you use 4 eggs for every 1/2 cup of flour it is supposed to make a decent bread. I wouldn't know, I've never done that.

I've been meaning to try a sweet potato bread recipe. If I do, I'll add it to this answer, but in the mean time...

Elana's Pantry has a great-looking bread recipe. I haven't tried it yet.

Gluten Free Sandwich Bread

  • 1 ?? cups blanched almond flour
  • ?? cup arrowroot powder
  • ?? cup flax seed meal
  • ?? teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • ?? teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, arrowroot, flax meal, salt and baking soda In a larger bowl, blend eggs 3-5 minutes until frothy. Stir agave and vinegar into eggs Mix dry ingredients into wet. Pour batter into a well greased 7.5" x 3.5" loaf pan.

Bake at 350?? for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Cool and serve.

Makes 1 medium sized loaf of gluten-free bread.

Again, more nut flours and some flax (of which I'm not a fan...). But it's another option for you. :)

I have this recipe for "Paleo Bread" which is more like muffins, I think.

Paleo Bread

Ingredients ??? 3/4 cup Organic Smooth Almond Butter ??? 4 egg ??? 1/4 cup Almond Flour ??? 1/2 tsp Baking Soda ??? 1/4 tsp Baking Powder ??? 1/2 tsp Salt

Directions Mix 3/4 cup almond butter with 4 egg yolks (whisk/whip the egg whites until semi-stiff). One the egg yolks are mixed into the almond butter, add the egg whites. This should start to look like batter. Add 1/4 cup almond flour (you can toss in some other nuts and seeds too, but the base (60%) should be almonds), 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1/4 tsp aluminum free baking powder. Pour this batter into greased muffin tins and sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds. Bake in a 350 F preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when stick in the middle of a roll.
