The best wheat free, paleo, banting, bread ever!

Today, one of my co-workers, Ana, brought me a piece of bread that she had baked, to try. It was delicious! I ate it without any embellishments, just the bread, and loved it! I immediately asked for the recipe and Ana told me she had found it on this website called GuiltyKitchen.com

Of course I went there right away to check it out and found that the author was Elizabeth Nyland. Bells and whistles went off in my head and I realised that I owned one of Elizabeth’s cookbooks called ‘Cooking with Coconut Oil’. Elizabeth also happens to live right here on Vancouver Island, as do I!

After work tonight, I grabbed her cookbook and the recipe for this wonderful bread was right there…I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t tried it yet! Baked it tonight and was as good as the one Ana had made….I’m in love with bread again! The real testament though was my son! He normally has not eaten any wheat free bread that I have made in the past……tells me it’s gross! I convinced him to try this one (no mean feat based on his past experience with my baking lol) and he really enjoyed it…… He said it was the best I had produced by far!

Get baking this bread people….you will love it! Here is the recipe:

Sandwich Bread

3/4 cup almond butter, smooth,
6 eggs
1 tbsp xylitol
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup golden flaxseed, ground
3 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 4×8 inch loaf pan well with coconut oil.

In a large bowl, mix almond butter, eggs, coconut oil and apple cider vinegar. (I used a hand beater)

In a separate bow, combine flaxseed flour, xylitol, coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Mix dry with wet and pour into loaf pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

Low-carb cheese crackers

I found this awesome recipe for cheese crackers a while ago that has become a firm favourite of mine. These are super quick and easy to make but be warned….. after eating one you won’t be able to resist having a few more!

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup blanched almond flour ( I buy blanched almonds and make my own flour using a coffee grinder)
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup grated cheese (I used aged cheddar)
1 egg
1 1/2 tbs olive oil

Method:
Pre-heat oven to 350F
Mix together almond flour, salt, baking soda and freshly grated cheese.
In a separate bowl beat together egg and olive oil.
Add to flour mixture and mix together well.
Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper to size of baking tray.
Place dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll out evenly (as best you can)
Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut dough into squares the desired size of crackers ( I get 30-35 crackers from a batch)
Bake for 12-15 mins
Remove from oven and allow to cool before breaking apart
Store crackers in air tight container. Make sure they are thoroughly cooled before storing else they may lose their crispness.

Enjoy with whatever toppings you desire❤️
