How To Make Almond Flour Bread
Set your oven to 350ºF and let it preheat. Grease a 9 by 4-inch loaf pan with non-stick spray. Line the loaf pan with parchment paper.
Add the almond flour, flaxseed meal, baking powder, sea salt, and monk fruit sweetener to a food processor. Pulse until combined.
Add the eggs and coconut oil. Process until combined.
Add the warm water and process until combined.
Let it sit for 5 minutes until the almond flour soaks up some of the moisture in the batter.
Pour the almond flour bread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Spread it into an even layer.
Bake the almond flour bread for 55-70 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let the almond bread cool completely in the pan before slicing.
- Add fresh or dried herbs: Add 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme, rosemary, oregano, basil, herbs de Provence, or Italian seasoning. Mix in a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder and onion powder to give the bread a more savory flavor.
- Make it a sweet bread: This bread already contains monk fruit sweetener. Add an additional 1-2 tablespoons of monk fruit sweetener and 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract to give it a sweeter flavor.
- Add spices: Add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon or 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger, nutmeg, or cloves. You can also add 1 teaspoon of chai spice mix to give the bread a warm, spiced flavor.
Why Is My Almond Flour Bread Not Rising?
Almond flour bread does not rise the same way wheat bread does. Almond flour lacks gluten and elasticity, which provides structure. Add leaveners such as baking soda, baking powder, or whipped egg whites to make the bread rise higher. If it still does not rise, your baking soda or baking powder may not be active. Purchase fresh baking powder or baking soda and try making the bread again.
What Does Bread Made From Almond Flour Taste Like?
Almond flour bread has a nutty and slightly sweet flavor from the monk fruit sweetener. It also has a chewy texture.
What Is A Good Binding Agent For Almond Flour?
Eggs or egg whites are a good binder for almond flour. However, if you are vegan, flaxseed meal, xanthan gum, or psyllium husk powder are excellent binders for almond flour bread.
Storing And Reheating Almond Flour Bread
Store the almond flour bread in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. The bread will last for 3 months in the freezer. But wrap the loaf tightly with plastic wrap and place it in a Ziploc bag before freezing.
You can also freeze the almond flour bread in slices so you can pull out a slice whenever a craving hits. Wrap each almond flour bread tightly with plastic wrap, place them in Ziploc bags, and freeze them.
To reheat almond flour bread, wrap it with a damp paper towel. Nuke the bread in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute. You can also place slices of almond flour bread on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then toast them for 5-10 minutes in a 350°F oven.
