This almond flour bread recipe was first introduced to me from my husband’s aunt who had to go on a strict sugar-free and gluten-free diet to combat an illness she had. As you can imagine, it is not a particularly fun lifestyle so she started experimenting in the kitchen to make things that were delicious yet still fit into her new lifestyle. The first time I tried this bread, I was honestly blown away. The texture is really similar to bread and because it is so high in protein and full of good fats, a small slice keeps you full for hours! I hope if you try this recipe, you will like this bread too. Would be sad if I was just some lone weirdo who really enjoyed this grain-free bread and everyone else hated it haha!!
Best Almond Flour Bread Recipe
Although I am a huge fan of ‘normal’ bread (i.e. bread that has gluten in it), it is always fun to shake up your normal routine and to try something new. I like having this bread if I have had a particularly carbohydrate heavy week or if I know I will be running around all day (because it keeps me full for ages). Plus, I always seem to buy almond flour and then never use it, so this bread is a great way to make use of my purchase.

Ways to Enjoy Almond Flour Bread
My all time favorite spread on bread is definitely avocado. Simply smash 1/4 of an avocado (or more depending, whatever you want) and spread with a knife onto bread. Season with a small amount of sea salt and a squeeze of lemon to bring out the flavor even more.
Okay, soooo this one kind of defeats the purpose of a sugar free bread. But honey is a wonderful and delicious topping! It’s definitely worth a try at least once hehe 😀
