Almond Keto Bread 

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

That’s right. I said BREAD.

This is a familiar recipe that I have seen floating around the interwebs.

A very simple one pan bread recipe which you can microwave or bake in the oven. I have only used the microwave, but I will include basic oven baking instructions.

So let’s get to it, shall we!

Wait! What is Ketosis? 

Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons Almond Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

The how to’s: 

  1. If using a microwave, use a microwave safe dish.
  2. If using the oven, preheat to 350 degrees and use an oven safe dish.
  3. Put the almond flour, baking powder, and salt in the dish. Mix to blend.
  4. Add the eggs and melted coconut oil. Mix completely.
  5. Microwave: place uncovered in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds on high.
  6. Oven: bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes. (I have a convection oven the time will vary for each oven so check every few minutes after the 12 minute mark)
  7. Remove from the pan and slice horizontal to spilt the “loaf” like an English muffin. Then cut in half.
  8. Toast in a skillet with butter on both sides to crisp the “bread.”

Look at that gorgeous loaf of bread!

If you don’t have time to toast the bread in a pan, use a toaster!

Look at that!! You can make Cinnamon Toast with this bread by simply adding a granulated Keto approved sweetener such as Swerve or Truvia and a few sprinkles of cinnamon! ~You’re Welcome!

Beautiful Golden Brown!

Toast these in a skillet or refrigerate and toast in a toaster oven as needed. 


Make these ahead for the week to have a quick “sandwich bread” ready for those days when you need something quick, full of fat, and easy to eat on the go!

The School year is coming up…use these for your #ketokid school lunch!

Use this simple and quick keto bread as a breakfast toast or make a grilled cheese if you tolerate dairy! How awesome is that!!! You can be keto and have a grilled cheese sandwich…with wine!

Almond and Cassava Flour Flatbreads with a little Kasandrinos EVOO…YES!!! 

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

Does everyone need to be Gluten Free?! We aren’t going to baby-step and tippy toe around this…uh Yes! Get of the Gluten Train for health’s sake!

We can explain all the reasons why you should be gluten free. Why and how it causes chronic inflammation on your innards. And how if you’re feelin’ like you can’t shake that brain foggy depression and your joints hurt…how the wheat based foods and ingredients you’re eating are probably the root cause and no amount of medication is going to fix it. You have to change your diet and lifestyle.

But you’re probably just wondering how the hell you’re going to have a sandwich if you can’t eat gluten.

We know a lot of gluten free breads on the market taste like a square piece of cardboard doing its best impersonation of bread. We too have sat down to take a bite of a yummy looking gluten free peanut butter sandwich only to feel the tears roll down our cheek as the “bread” crumbled apart in our hands leaving us with PBJ covered hands. Sigh.

But we have a fix for all of you sandwich addicted souls.

  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup Otto’s Cassava Flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs, free range
  • 2 tbsp Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Now here’s the technical part!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment.

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Boom!
  2. Add the liquid ingredients and just mix with a fork until combined. Bam!
  3. Using a 3/4 oz ice cream scoop…scoop batter onto parchment sheet. Use the back of a spoon or an offset spatula to spread the batter to about 1/4″ thickness.
  4. You should have enough to make 6 single flatbreads. Use one for a top and one for a bottom. Yep, really technical.
  5. Bake the flatbreads for 10-11 minutes and enjoy as sandwich buns, hamburger buns, egg sandwich buns, etc!

If you have a bigger sandwich addiction just double the recipe. You can also make these using a mini ice cream scooper and use them as slider buns!


The Kansandrinos EVOO gives them a great flavor.

And look! Fluffy fluffy FLUFFY bread that doesn’t fall apart and it also doesn’t make you choke! You gluten free-er’s know what I’m talking about!  

NOW GO AND MAKE THESE. WHAT?! You don’t have any Otto’s or any Kasandrinos. Well if you have a device that connects to the internet you can fix that. Also money. You will need money.

Gluten Free Cooking and Baking is different than regular baking. Just throw out all your previous baking ideas and get ready to learn a new way to Mix, Bake and Destroy! Because Gluten Free baking is a whole other animal. 

Here is your Mission!

Mission: Gluten Free Bread

Objective: Almond Flour Flatbread

Yield 12 round flatbreads: Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Having a burger or sandwich that you can hold in your hand isn’t impossible if your gluten free. However, what is difficult is finding breads that don’t contain questionable ingredients. 

Gluten free breads are still a processed food! 

Don’t forget that! 

So try this recipe. It has basic ingredients without the use of any grains or oils that you may be avoiding (sorry Canola Oil, we saw how you’re made and it’s just gross). 

Essential Equipment: 

  • 2 Bowls
  • Whisk
  • 2 Baking Sheets
  • Measuring cups
  • Parchment Paper
  • 3/4 oz ice cream scoop or 1/4 c measuring cup
  • oven

Arsenal:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup for sprinkling on parchment paper
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 finger pinch sea salt or pink Himalayan salt

Actions on the Objective:

  1. In a bowl whisk the eggs, coconut oil, and applesauce.
  2. In another bowl mix together the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Whisk until completely combined
  4. Place a sheet of parchment on each baking sheet
  5. Sprinkle Almond Flour in 3-4 inch diameter circles to keep batter from spreading
  6. Place one ice cream scoop of batter on each circle.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
  8. Remove from baking sheets after letting cool for 5 minutes.
  9. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

  

  That’s how you Sprinkle.

  
Use these Flatbreads for anything you want. Like some Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Pork Butt! Some Butt on some Buns. Well it just had to be done. 

Now go and make these! 

Top Secret Tactics: You do not have to precise when it comes to  the order you mix the batter ingredients. I have on many occasions dumped everything in one bowl and whisked until combined with great success. 

I have also made these omitting the coconut oil with no problems. I like the smell and flavor with the coconut oil a bit better. But you can choose your own path here. Either way works!
