I think that (alternative) flours are supportive to be avoided in general, and the vinegar, too.   ?

I use vinegar on my salads.

I've never tried a paleo-alternative bread.... I do have almond flour and coconut flour, thinking I might try to make some, but I haven't yet.

Looks great, although there seems to be little nutritional value in it (aside from the fiber and protein) which is contradictory to Paleo eating.  I've made "Paleo" bread; it's delicious and nutritious.


I used unblanched almond flour to make this.  It resembled wheat bread in looks and texture (using blanched almond flour would give more of a yellow cast to the finished slices.)  My kids said it had more flavor than wheat bread, though.


Paleo Bread - makes one loaf

  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1/4 c. golden flaxseed meal (I used Bob's Red Mill brand)
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt (I used regular)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 c. melted coconut oil OR butter
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar

Mix dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  Add rest of ingredients and mix until well combined.  Pour into a greased 7.5" x 3.5" loaf pan (and grease that pan VERY well!!!)

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes until loaf tests done with a pick.  I had to bake mine for 45 minutes.

Use knife and serving spatula around the edges to loosen the loaf if needed.  Remove from pan.  Cool and serve.

Apple cider vinegar is fine.  It's more natural than white vinegar, which is usually derived from corn.

I haven't found a brand of Almond flour in which I like the texture once cooked, can you recommend one?

Almond flour is going to be a bit grainy and heavy because that's the nature of the almond flour.  I think Honeyville Farms had the best.  I use it for pancakes/waffles, muffins, cakes, and breads.

Vinegar is fine to use and be careful on alternative flours. I prefer either coconut or almond

I've seen that brand at one of the local health food stores.

I think it is astonishingly close to "junk food" considering it more or less abides by paleo principles, LOL.

I've found that nearly all things bakery make my blood sugar jump and mess up my blood sugar for at least 24 hours.

I guess they are not great for blood sugar, so while they might be "approved ingredients" they aren't really considered healthy (enough), I am learning.

I tend to stay away from paleo versions of non-paleo food, they typically end up being just slightly more nutrient dense as their counterparts. I stick with (for the most part) whole foods in their most pure form possible. Don't get me wrong, I make a mean paleo/primal cookie once in awhile.
