Oh my my. I found a new love. Almond flour. This bread recipe is super easy and fun to do with the kids. I just learned (thanks Leslie) that you can make almond flour by putting almonds in the blender. Surprise!
Right before they become almond butter- the nuts are flour! Seriously, its amazing. This recipe DOES not taste like some of the SICK gluten free bread I have purchased. This bread is moist and nutty~ and packed with protien. I love my muffins topped with a little earth balance butter or cream cheese with my coffee in the am...
2 1/2 Cups Almond Flour
1/8 cup honey
1/4 cup applesauce (don't have applesauce? add another egg instead)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar (I love Bragg's)
Fun additions~I add em all, plus whatever other fruit is sitting around
1 mashed banana
1 handful of raisins
1 handful of dried cranberries
Beat eggs and honey, add applesauce and vanilla. Add rest of ingredients. Add whatever fun addition you like.
Coat whatever pan you are using with pam/cooking spray/butter.
Cook on 300 deg for 20-35 minutes- depending what pan you select. I like to make em into muffins which take about 25-30 mins. Watch the bread. It tastes horrible if it is overcooked. Take it out of the oven once the top gets brown and the middle is not geeewey.
AC Vinegar is really good for you.
