How to make 90 second grain-free bread

If you’re like me:  willing to make lifestyle changes that give the body’s immune system the best chance to self-heal, searching for ways to satisfy your cravings for “good” food, comfort-food while avoiding gluten, lectin, dairy, grains, soy, alcohol, sugar and on and on and on: watch this short video.

Below, I’ve given you a link to the original recipe and my tweaks on it.  Enjoy!

First, here is the link to the original recipe:  Keto Chicken Sandwich with Italian Grain-free Bread.

I have a long health recovery story.  This is one of many posts about it.  I strongly suggest you seek professional health care regarding your own health.  The following stories are my own experiences and not meant to diagnose or treat any illness.

Even though this bread recipe originally came from Paleo Magazine, I do not recommend a straight Paleo or Keto diet, though there are many who do, including my own San Antonio, Texas based nutritionist, Beverly Meyer.   There’s a BIG reason I don’t follow a straight any-kind of diet.   I’ll post more about my experience with dietary lifestyle changes later, but for now, let it suffice to say that I have been alcohol free for thirty-seven years and gluten-free for seventeen years in pursuit of recovery and wellness.

Here’s a link to my reason for not eating straight Paleo or Keto (at the moment).

Do read both of these blogs.  Education is the key to finding what works for you individually.  However, I am not a proponent of the adage, “all things in moderation,” because, as you will understand as you read these blogs (and books and watch podcasts, etc.), there are some foods that simply should not be a part of one’s diet for recovery, especially from chronic or acute disease!

Now back to the bread!  Yum!  It’s soft and moist and tasty, especially with some olive oil and salt, an egg, or a bit of fruit-only jelly.  My favorite brand is Simply Fruit by Smuckers.  I love the apricot!

Now the original recipe is for a seasoned bread, as you will see.  While that is also delicious, I prefer the plain version for breakfast.  I rarely toast it, as is also recommended in the original version, as I think it’s too dry that way, but if you’re longing for crunch, you might give it a try.

I adore this bread with coffee or tea in the morning.  Just a couple of thin slices is filling enough for me & includes good protein so my blood sugar doesn’t spike.

Leave a comment to let me know how you like it and share with other health seekers.  We can’t do enough to help each other heal.

Peace,

Keto Bread Recipe (contains nuts & egg!)

Ingredients:  1/3 C Almond flour; 1/2 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder; 1/8 tsp. salt; 1 egg whisked; 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin, organic olive oil

Blend dry ingredients together in a microwaveable cup.  I use a Pyrex 2C measuring cup as it has a nice muffin-sized cylinder.  Add egg and oil.  Whisk together well.  Microwave 90 seconds on high.  Let cool a minute.  Slice and eat or toast under the broiler until browned.

Enjoy!
