Basic gluten free Paleo bread

Really delicious...you wouldn't think it was grain free!

Really delicious…you wouldn’t think it was grain free!

Ingredients:

*1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour (you can make your own by grinding whole blanched almonds in a food processor or spice grinder)

*½ cup millet flour

*2 Tablespoons coconut flour

¼ cup ground golden flaxseed

¼ teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

5 large eggs (or 3 whole and 3 egg whites) at room temperature is best

1 ½ tablespoons coconut oil (I use Wildtree organic)

1 Tablespoon honey (Local is available)

1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg’s)

Directions:

  1. Place flours, flaxseed, salt & baking soda in a food processor.
  2. Pulse ingredients together.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients in separate container and slowly add to flour mixture, pulsing after each pour just until mixed.
  4. Transfer to a greased loaf pan. (I used a glass pan and I brushed the sides generously with olive oil)
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
  6. Cool in the pan. I use a spatula to gently unstick any areas on the pan, and then it should slide out pretty well after it has cooled.
  7. Enjoy! I like to drizzle a little honey on top.

NOTE:  You can add your favorite spices, nuts, fresh berries or other fresh or frozen fruits to the batter.

*You can also use any combination of the above nut & seed flours or any you prefer to get the flavor you like.

    Hello, Tammy!  I  just got your e-mail, very interesting, I’m going to make that bread as soon as I get all ingredients. Also, read your comments on Romans 12:2 about not conforming to this world. I want to seriously wean myself off of the “world’s way” of eating. We do a lot of God’s way, but still could do more for optimal health.  For example #1, I go to visit my son & wife & my two sweet grandchildren, girl 6, boy 3. We go out to eat at a Greek-type restaurant. Of course, this place has NO organic, some salads. I ordered a veggie wrap, which was wrapped with a huge white flour tortilla. (too much for me). I didn’t eat all of the wrap. My son doesn’t mind talking about better health, but his wife, touchy subject!! OUCH!!!  Example #2, My church has a Valentine Banquet coming up. The lady who arranged these dinners before at least had salads. The lady doing it now, is all into carbs, mac & cheese,pot.salad, etc. Friends at church want us to go to this, even my one friend who knows a lot about healthfood. (Her Mom is a manager of a big healthfood store in my area.)We went to this last year, I was totally disappointed in the food! If I go, I’m taking a container home for someone else to eat that stuff or give to the dog. I will definitely eat a good salad before attending this event, if I do go. I don’t mean to complain cause God doesn’t like grumbling, you know. BUT, mine and my families’ health is at stake here. I know that the more I eat God’s way, the healthier I can be and then the more I can serve Him. People out their in the church just don’t see it that way. So I know I got to make a choice here.  Plus, so many in the church are sick, dying of cancer, heart problems, etc. They just go up front & ask for prayer to be delivered & healed after their diets possibly got them to that awful state. Thank you for your e-mails. I do appreciate them. Ashley Van Driel 

    • Hi Ashley! Sorry it has taken a bit to answer…I am working on my taxes…Plus…here in New England, we are in the middle of yet another winter snowstorm. Shoveling is a daily routine!
      It is great to hear that you are making and continuing to seek to make healthy changes! Great job!

      I am glad you are enjoying my blog! Thank you so much for giving me feed back! I hope you like the Paleo bread recipe. My family and I really like it. I will be posting a gluten free, Paleo coffee cake recipe soon 🙂

      When you are out to eat, try to get a salad or a meal with grilled or broiled meats, skip the rolls & starches and opt for extra steamed veggies. Most restaurants will accommodate you.
      I don’t know what other choices you had at the Greek restaurant, so the veggie wrap sounds like one of the better choices…did you just eat the veggies and not much wrap?

      Speaking about your family..they are a blessing as you know. Enjoy your time with them. I would suggest you make healthy choices in your life and not “push” it on them (not that I am implying that you do that)…for example, when you get together for a home meal, tell me what a favorite meal is and I can help you make it healthier. That way, not much appears to change on the outside appearance of the food.
      Your son’s wife may feel like it is a personal attack, so tread lightly. Come along side her. Maybe she has no idea what a healthy diet can do.

      Speaking on the church banquet…I was involved for years in our church’s Sweetheart Valentine’s Banquet and we tried to always offer a salad, a beef and chicken dish, steamed veggies, rice or baked potato and fresh fruit as well as sugary desserts. If you can add your input & concern, perhaps others feel as you do. Ask around without grumbling as you said. The Lord likes a happy heart. There may be ways for you to make changes, if not this year, maybe next? If it’s potluck, can you bring a healthy addition? That addresses your concerns in a non-confrontational way. If not, then eat a good meal before you go, if that is the best choice you have.

      You MAY VERY WELL BE the answer to the direction God is taking your church in health & Wellness awareness. If you have not had a chance, read my blog entries on Rex Russell and his book, What the Bible Says About Healthy Living” I paraphrased the book. You can buy a copy for yourself as reference too. Maybe have a Book study?

      What we eat effects our whole body and especially our blood sugar. Diabetes is VERY dangerous.

      I am working on making my 12 week weight loss & wellness awareness classes available on line as a webinar for a small fee per class. I will post when they are ready.

      I don’t give my number out to many, however if you need to talk to me…you can call my cell at (603) 670-5838.

      Thanks again Ashley and many blessings!

    P.S. My son’s wife is diabetic, too, just uses the insulin after eating carbs, etc.
