The thing I miss the most about wheat is the amazing bread that it can make.  Bread is probably the hardest thing to make well with gluten free flours like almond but I will keep on experimenting and try new combinations to see what I can come up with!

Most breads made with almond flour turn up a little cake-like which isn’t quite so bad in my opinion but still not quite the same has having a nice crusty slice of wheat bread.

My first attempt produced a sad little loaf that was dense but delicious!  Hardly enough for the week for breakfast but certainly enough for us to nibble on as a snack.

Slightly sweet and definitely nutty in flavour, try this recipe at home!

What you need!

2 1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 eggs
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

What to do!

1.  Combine the flour, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.

2.  Whisk the eggs, honey and apple cider vinegar together.  It’s helpful if the eggs are room temperature to froth up a bit more and become more airy.

3.  Quickly and gently combine the wet ingredients with the dry.

4.  Spoon the batter into a parchment lined loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Smother with natural peanut butter, sugar-free jams or a fruit curd!  Enjoy.
