Bread is one of the hardest things for many people to give up when starting a Paleo diet. Did you know that you can make your own Paleo bread recipes at home?
I’ve compiled this long list of fantastic Paleo bread recipes, so if you’re craving a sandwich or just a slice of toast, look no further. There’s even sourdough bread!
Top 3 Paleo bread recipes
It’s easy to feel like going Paleo means you’ll have to give up sandwiches as the staple of your mid-day meal, but it’s not so! Luckily Adriana at the Living Healthy with Chocolate blog gives us this great sandwich bread recipe (and permission to use her image) so you don’t have to say goodbye to your BLTs! Her first non-sweet bread recipe contains almond flour and flaxseeds for a hearty and healthy alternative to whole wheat bread. While the ingredients list includes butter and yogurt, she also provides us with the alternative substitutes for the non-dairy crowd so we can still get in on this slice of heaven! Whether it’s for lunch or a mid-afternoon on-the-go snack, this recipe is perfect to make on the weekend and store in the fridge for speedy sandwich prept any day of the week.
I can’t decide where this yummy Chestnut-Almond Bread goes on the spectrum of sweet to savory, but I love how you can customize it with honey or fruits based on your preference! And with a wide array of coconut based products – coconut milk, flour and oil – you can depend on this great bread recipe to be tasty AND good for you at the same time, no need for substitutions. The Saffron Girl has created this wonderfully subtle nutty Paleo-friendly bread that can accompany a meat dish or salad, or stand alone as an accompaniment to an afternoon or mid-morning cup of tea. I can’t wait to try it!
Oh how I love the taste of sourdough! It always makes me nostalgic about my visits to San Francisco. Now I can reminisce about the City by the Bay in true Paleo fashion thanks to Urban Poser’s grain-free sourdough (Saffron Girl also tried it out, which is where I originally discovered this gem of a recipe). Don’t be discouraged that the ingredients list includes pro-biotic capsules; these are easy enough to find at the health-food store and the key that give this bread it’s unique taste. The cashew base and few other ingredients make this a simple enough do-it-yourself sourdough that you’ll be proud of! Homemade sourdough AND Paleo-friendly? I never expected it, but alas, here it is!
