Many of us started out our Paleo lifestyles by giving up bread. We were told it would be tough, but worth it, and it was.
So what’s a bread recipe doing on a Paleo recipe site?
Well, sometimes you just need a little treat, and if you’re really craving something doughy, this Paleo bread recipe can act as a healthy alternative to the gluten-filled stuff you should really avoid.

Bread by itself can be pretty bland, and if you’re not feeling well or you’re in search of something mild in flavor to compliment a more flavorful dish, maybe you’d rather make this bread without the herbs.
If you’re like me, and love the flavor and health benefits that herbs add to your meal, you can always add more! Double up on the rosemary and oregano or create your own flavor combinations.
If you just want bread to satisfy your carb cravings, you may enjoy it toasted and spread with some Paleo Strawberry Jam. Make it a full Paleo breakfast and serve your toast alongside an omelet, with hash browns, baked bacon and coffee. :)
Herbs Add More Than Flavor
If you do choose to include herbs in your bread, there are a number of reasons to include oregano.
Oregano is one of the healthiest herbs available to us. It comes loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and even omega-3 fats (the polyunsaturated fat that we like because it’s anti-inflammatory).
Of course, fresh oregano has more of these health benefits than the dried variety. For this recipe I used dried, but if you have fresh oregano available and want to try cooking and baking with it, definitely go for it!

When To Use Paleo Bread
Now, just because we have a couple different Paleo bread recipes at our finger tips doesn’t mean you should go back to eating toast and sandwiches every day. Although Paleo baked goods do tend to be healthier than conventional varieties, they’re still pretty carb heavy.
We recommend indulging in treats like this only occasionally. Then get back on the meat and veggie wagon as soon as you can!

Marla Sarris: Hey everybody, Marla Sarris from Paleo Porn here and today we’re gonna jump in the kitchen and make some paleo bread. Let’s get to it.
When we went to meet Jill from Jilz Gluten Free she made us her paleo gluten free bread and we loved it! We were blown away. So we wanted to share it with other people and I also wanted to make sure I had the recipe so I could make it again when I came home. And she was cool with sharing the recipe.
The loaf recipe that was on the site was something that I had made a while back and we really haven’t made it again since I last made that. And now that we had Jill’s recipe I simply replaced one for the other. We got requests to bring back the loaf recipe. So that’s why I’m making a paleo bread loaf today.
So these are the ingredients that you’re going to need.
2 3/4 cup of blanched almond flour. And it can be almond meal as well, but that’s gonna give it a little bit different consistency to the bread.
3/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda.
A half teaspoon of sea salt.
One teaspoon of dried rosemary and you can add more if you’d like. Also one teaspoon of dried sage, two teaspoons of dried oregano.
Two large eggs and pastured raised, organic are the best choice. If you can get them straight from the farmer bonus points for you.
One teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
One quarter cup of unsweetened almond milk.
And last but not least you’ll need one tablespoon of salted butter. And I use Kerrygold all the time. And you’ll need that melted. Don’t bring it to a boil, so put it over a medium-low heat just until it’s melted and take it off the heat because you want it to cool a little bit before you add it.
Be sure that you have previously pre-heated your oven to 300 degrees. It’s best to do that before you start because then as you’re working your oven warms up to the temperature you need by the time you need it.
You’ll wanna stuff it down with your fingers and make sure all the crevices get filled. And scatter some more dried herbs on top. I did some more dried oregano and some dried rosemary.
And you wanna bake for 35 minutes.
Once that’s done you’ll want to use a toothpick and check the center to make sure that it’s cooked all the way through. If your toothpick goes inside the middle and comes out clean then you’re ready to go.
So there you have it! That is my paleo bread recipe. And when you make it be sure to tag us on Instagram so we can see all your goods. And if you enjoyed this video be sure to give it a thumbs up and make sure you subscribe so that you’re aware when we post the next one.
I’m Marla Sarris and this has been another episode of Paleo Porn TV. See you next time!
