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.
