In an attempt to burn a few excess pounds and cut back on carbs generally, I’ve been focusing more on foods high in protein and healthy fats the past few weeks.  High protein/high fat foods are more satiating, which means you’re less likely to nibble throughout the day, they lead to more stable blood sugar, and contribute to improved body composition.

But giving up bread is HARD.  Even if only temporary.  Can you relate?  So I’ve been experimenting with some low carb/high protein bread alternatives to help me stay sane while I’m on my low carb kick.  I’ve found a great solution:  Paleo Bread!

At the time I first developed this paleo bread recipe our daughter was 4 years old.  She was a good eater, willing to try new things (not so true for our then 6 year old son!), but I was pretty surprised to see her wolf down this bread.  Over the course of three days she ate 3/4 of the loaf all by herself!  Her favorite thing was to spread it with some butter, some homemade fruit preserves, and enjoy an open-faced nut bread sandwich.

She kept me going making one loaf after the other for quite a while!  And I was perfectly happy to accommodate knowing she was getting lots of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

Paleo Bread Recipe

Let’s get started!

Place the whole almonds and hazelnuts in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground.  Add the pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds and pulse until ground.

grinding nuts and seeds in food processor

Add the almond meal, hazelnut meal, coconut flour, salt and baking soda and pulse until combined.

In a separate bowl, combine the nut milk, eggs, melted coconut oil, honey and cider vinegar.

Pour the mixture into the food processor.  Process until the mixture is thoroughly combined.

combining ingredients in food processor

Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.

Line a 8×4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.  Spread the mixture into the lined loaf pan and use a spoon to smooth down the surface.  Sprinkle the top with some extra pumpkin, flax and sesame seeds (I also used sunflower seeds for the top).

(Note:  Do not include sunflower seeds inside the bread itself, it causes a chemical reaction that results in the bread turning green – that’s GREEN! – I’m totally serious.)

pulsing ingredients in food processor and spooning into loaf pan

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake the bread on the middle shelf for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.  Let the bread cool completely and then remove it from the pan.

Store the bread in the fridge in an airtight container.  It keeps for about 4-5 days.

This bread can be fragile to slice so for the best results, we highly recommend using a good bread slicer.

We use an old commercial-grade Hobart that we found on Craigslist years ago.  Currently the model for the best price with the best reviews is the Chef’s Choice Premium Electric Food Slicer.
