Paleo Bread Recipe (Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free)
You asked for a Paleo Bread Recipe
I’ve had a lot of requests for a full loaf paleo bread recipe, so here it is! It takes longer than my microwave bread recipe, but it’s worth the wait (most of the extra time is just waiting for it to cook in the oven), and you can make enough to share.
–> This is a pretty simple recipe with fairly easy to get Paleo ingredients. The bread that comes out is solid with a crust (it’s moist inside and forms good medium to thick slices).
For a Lighter Paleo Bread
If you want the bread to be even lighter (or fluffier as I often think of it), then you can add in 1/3 cup pure whey protein powder and also 1/4 cup more almond milk.
Olive Oil or Coconut Oil?
As for whether you should use olive oil or coconut oil in this recipe – I experimented with both, and I like both (the olive oil version goes better with salty foods and the coconut oil version goes a bit better with sweeter foods).
Did you enjoy this Paleo bread recipe?
This is what Betty (one of our readers) told me when I asked her how she liked this recipe:
OMG! It’s wonderful! The loaf does not rise much, but is so tender, light and tasty. I kept going back for another slice. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I am certain it will be my favorite from now on.

I was really happy when Angelo emailed me and shared with me Norman King’s paleo bread recipe. They’ve allowed me to share this with all of you too!

1 tablespoon vinegar (better cider or wine)

2. Put in a loaf tin (better rectangular), line the tin with aluminum foil.
3. Spread the surface with seeds.

I especially love the seeds on top – it just makes Norman’s bread look beautiful!
