How to Make Paleo Bread Crumbs

Sometimes you just need bread crumbs for a recipe, and that can be tough when you’re trying to stick to a Paleo diet.

That was the case when I was making meatloaf. If you don’t use bread crumbs in this meatloaf recipe, it’d just be this dense chunk of meat (not very tasty!).


So, how do you make Paleo bread crumbs fast?

I start by making this really easy and fast microwave paleo bread (recipe here). This takes less than 5 minutes to make.

Then I break up the bread into large chunks (or small chunks if you want finer bread crumbs), place the bread crumbs onto a baking tray and bake them at 350F for 5-10 minutes until they’re crisp on the outside.

Each serving of the microwave paleo bread recipe makes around 1 cup of bread crumbs.

I’d never seen anything for Paleo bread before, I must admit I do miss bread from time to time! This is really cool, I’ll give it a go. Thanks!

Tried it! It came out gorgeous. Trying to convince my mum there’s a Paleo alternative to everything, it’s slowly working, thanks!
