Gluten-Free almond Bread recipe

I know many of us are on gluten-free diets. I have been having fun with almond flour. Here is a quick and easy recipe to try.


Basic Ingredients for Basic Loaf:
· 1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
· ¾ cup arrowroot powder or tapioca flour
· ¼ cup flax seed meal
· ½ tsp. baking soda

Mix dry ingredients together in medium bowl.
· 4 eggs
· 1 tsp. agave nectar
· 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Blend eggs for 3-5 minutes, then add agave and vinegar.
Add dry ingredients and mix. Add optional extras (below)
Pour batter into greased medium sized loaf pan
Bake at 350 for 25-35 minute, until toothpick inserted in center is clean.
Cool and serve. Good toasted with butter.

Optional Extras:
· ¼ cup chopped walnuts
· ¼ cup chopped hazelnuts
· ½ cup chopped pistachios
· ¼ cup sunflower seeds
· ¼ cup sesame seeds

About Blanched Almond Flour: you can buy it this way at New Frontiers or you can put ¾ - 1 cup raw almonds into a heavy duty mixer like a VitaMix or Blend-tec and blend on high until you don’t see any ‘dust’ around the blender canister – just a short time. It is not as fine, but it works for this recipe. I hear TJs has almond meal available too.

You can easily double the recipe and bake in a square baking dish (8x8?)
