Grain-Free GAPS friendly Sandwich Bread/Toast

original recipe here

Grain-Free GAPS friendly Bread
Makes 1 loaf
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup crispy almond flour
  • 1/2 cup (one stick) plus 2 Tb butter
  • 8 eggs, preferably from pastured hens
  • 1 Tb mild-flavored honey
  • 1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp  sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda

  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.  Turn off heat and allow to cool a bit.  Then stir in the honey and vinegar.
  2. Break the eggs into a medium bowl.  Add the salt, baking soda, almond flour, and butter mixture.  Mix together with an blender or hand mixer. 
  3. Measure out the coconut flour.  It will need to be sifted if you are not using an blender.
  4. Using an blender or handheld mixer, mix the coconut flour into the other ingredients very well.  There is no worry of over-mixing this recipe since there is no gluten in it.
  5. Pour the batter into a well-buttered loaf pan. 
  6. Bake at 300 degrees/ Make 2  for about 50-60 minutes.  It will be done when it is set in the middle (you can lightly tough it, or check to see if a toothpick comes out clean).
  7. Let cool for about 15-20 minutes, and then use a spatula or knife to go around the edges.  Invert the pan and move the bread to a cooling rack.  Cool completely.
  8. Wrap tightly. Store in the fridge or freezer.
