This is my first post! I figured I would start off with a recipe since I'm sure I will end up talking a lot about food. I am not an expert by any means, but I love reading and learning more about good nutrition and how it affects performance. Staying strict paleo is difficult, especially when you miss being able to make a quick pb&j for lunch. Last night I discovered my favorite paleo bread recipe to date. It tastes like a dense multi-grain bread and doesn't suck up all of the saliva in your mouth like some grain-free baked goods do.
I followed this recipe exactly as it was, though I'm sure if you are trying to watch sugar, the tablespoon honey could be omitted with out affecting taste or consistency.
1 ½ cups almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
¼ cup golden flaxseed meal
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Mix almond flour, coconut flour, flax, salt and baking soda in a large bowl of mixer
Beat in in eggs, oil, honey and vinegar (consistency will be thick, but not like typical bread dough)
Pour into a greased 7.5" x 3.5" loaf pan and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
Let cool and serve! (Keep uneaten bread refrigerated to last longer!)
It actually bakes up like a real loaf of bread. I ate mine this morning with almond butter... Mmm
