I love the Paleo Diet, and credit it for helping to heal my G.I. tract, but every now and then you just want a damn sandwich, you know what I mean? Like, a big, bacon, turkey, lettuce, tomato, avocado sandwich. Of course if I have one on regular bread things will get, uh, shall we say…ugly. Enter Paleo Sandwich Bread. Unlike most gluten-free breads which are made with yeast, white rice flour and potato starch this guy is packed with healthy ingredients like coconut oil, flax seed and almond butter. Not only that, but its delicious flavor is delightfully reminiscent of honey wheat. I use it mostly for sandwiches, but it’s also a great conduit for butter, so it’s a huge win all around.
Preheat oven: 350 degrees F
¾ smooth, creamy almond butter
1 TBSP honey
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup flax seed meal
¼ cup almond flour (You can buy my fave here)
2 TBSP coconut flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
In a large bowl blend almond butter, egg, honey, and melted coconut oil with hand blender until smooth. (Make sure almond butter has been stirred so it’s smooth and creamy, not mealy, or you’ll have to put all wet ingredients in Vitamix to smooth it out. Then you’ll have one more thing to clean and no one wants that.)
Add flax meal, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and ¼ tsp salt. Blend again.
Place a piece of parchment paper into a small bread pan (4” x 8”) and grease walls and bottom with coconut oil or ghee. Pour mixture into pan and bake 40 minutes, then allow to cool for 15 before slicing.
Store in fridge for up to 10 days.
