This recipe is from Elana’s Pantry.  All of her recipes are gluten free and most you can tweak here and there to make it Paleo-friendly.  Today I made the Nutty Bread.  It reminds me a little of Ezekiel bread; except it is made with almond flour.  You can find Elana’s version of the recipe by clicking on the link above.  I am posting mine below along with some pics.

Ingredients as pictured above:

– 1 1/2 c. blanched almond flour
– 3/4 c. arrowroot powder
– 1/4 c. flaxseed meal
– 1/2 tsp. sea salt
– 1/2 tsp. baking soda
– 4 eggs
– 1 tsp. honey (subbed for agave nectar)
– 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
– 1/4 c. walnuts, coarsely chopped
– 1/2 c. pistachios (make sure you get them already shelled-I didn’t and it took forever!)
– 1/4 c. pumpkin seeds
– 1/4 c. sunflower seeds
– 1/4 c. sesame seeds

1. In a medium bowl, mix almond flour, arrowroot, flax meal, sea salt, baking soda
2.In a larger bowl, blend eggs 3-5 minutes until frothy

3.Stir honey and vinegar into eggs
4.Mix dry ingredients into wet, then add nuts and seeds
5.Pour batter into a well greased 7.5″ x 3.5″ loaf pan
6.Bake at 350º for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean
7.Cool and serve

Now, I know some of you may be thinking, wow…that’s a lot of nuts/seeds = a lot of fat.  Well, my friends all of the fat is heart healthy fat that is way better than the kinds of fat and processed-ness you would be getting from a store bought bread that is similar.  Plus, get over your low-fat fetish already.  Your body needs and uses fat, when it’s the good kind! For more delicious recipes and treats check out Elana’s website.
