Gluten Free Almond Flour Bread August Pinterest Challenge
Welcome to the August Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. How many pins do you have that you’ve never tried? Well, the purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! Sign up to join next month’s challenge and join the fun! This month, I chose to make Gluten Free Almond Flour Bread from this pin from Wholesome Yum.
Gluten Free Almond Flour Bread
This bread is very tasty and will go great with those fall meals like soup and stews! I realized after I made it that I used whole psyllium husks and not the powder. I did a little research and found that grinding up 1 tablespoon of whole husks gives 1 teaspoon of powder. So I guess I didn’t use quite enough! In case you’ve never heard of them, psyllium husks are obtained from the seed of Plantago ovata, a plant native to India. It is basically a type of fiber and has quite a few health benefits.
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup psyllium husk powder
- 1 tbsp gluten free baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 large eggs (beaten)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 cup Warm water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together all of the dry ingredients.
Then stir in the eggs and melted coconut oil. After that add the warm water. Try to mix it well to create air bubbles.
Pour the batter to the loaf pan. Use a spoon to smooth the top out.
Bake for 60-70 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and the top is very hard, like a bread crust. (**Note from Maya: Important, it will pass the toothpick test before it’s completely done, so make sure the top is very crusty, too.) Cool completely before removing from the pan.
If you would like to make this in a bread maker, hop over to Wholesome Yum to get the directions.
Just like any other homemade bread without preservatives, this is best eaten within the first few days.

A homemade bread doesn’t normally last more than a couple of hours in our house, so no danger of this going stale! It looks delicious, I’ll give ti a try next time my gluten free friend comes round for lunch. Thanks
Hope your friend enjoys it!
yummy! I’ve never made homemade bread because I know I will eat it all. haha! Bread is amazing with stews & soups.
When I make gluten free baked goods I usually freeze quite a bit so I don’t eat it all!
It’s been a while since I made homemade bread. It’s the best and disappears quickly! I had never heard of psyllium husks so thanks for the explanation. Your recipes sounds yummy!

This sounds tasty and looks great. Breads can be tricky to make. Yours looks like it came out just right! Pinning.
Roseann, I kinda like the look of this bread. Very often I’ve tried gluten free products and it felt like a mouthful of sand after the first bite. I don’t know why, but I feel this is not the case with your bread. I got diagnosed with a lot of Things next to my MS and gluten intolerance is one of them (but I don’t follow a very strickt diet).

I think the almond flour in this one helps give it a more moist texture.
I have lots of gluten free friends that I am sure will love this recipe! Pinned.
Thanks for visiting Joanne!
I’ve been looking for recipes to use my almond flour, thanks for sharing!
I love baking with almond flour! Hope you enjoy this recipe!
This looks delicious! I love trying out new GF recipes so I pinned it and will definitely be trying this one.
I hope you enjoy it Bri!
This looks so good. Homemade bread is so delicious with a good soup or stew. The pictures are making my mouth water.

Thanks for stopping by Debra!
I honestly have never cooked ‘gluten’ free before, so I’m not familiar with some of the ingredients. Is gluten free bread dense or drier than regular bread or about the same?
This particular bread is certainly more dense because of the almond flour but that also keeps it moist.
Almond bread sounds so interesting! Mmm love fresh bread too!
This looks delicious! My mom needs to eat gluten free. I will definitely make this for her. Pinned!
That looks like a hearty bread! I wonder if you could use ground flax seed instead of psyllium? Maybe reduce the eggs, too, since flax seed is a good binder.
Looks great! I love that it doesn’t take too long to bake.

I love this, thank you so much for sharing! I’ve been doing keto since early June (lost 18 lbs!) and this is PERFECT! From The Blogger’s Pitstop.
Congratulations on your weight loss! I know how hard it is to eat healthy!
Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party.
Oooohhhh, my daughter has to be gluten-free and we’re always looking for bread options for her!
It was hard not to eat the whole loaf myself! I hope your daughter enjoys it!
I was researching something else and stumbled on this recipe. I had to stop everything and go make it, it is in the oven now! I can’t wait to try it. LOL, I already had all of the ingredients 🙂
I hope you enjoyed it!
Your Almond Flour Bread looks so good, Roseann! It’s definitely the time of year where I’m wanting to get back in the kitchen and make delicious recipes like this! Thank you for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope to see you again this week. Have a great week ahead!
