Buttery Almond Flour Bread

October 24th, 2018 | no comments

I’ve never been much of a bread girl. Just like pasta, I can take or leave it. However, a bowl of soup seems sadly incomplete without a slice of bread and butter.

In the past, crusty French or chewy sourdough were my go-to favs, but since I’ve made it a goal to minimize gluten in my diet, I had to find another option. Gluten-free breads are just OK, but they are loaded with carbohydrates…and to be honest, I’d much rather get my carbs from the beans in my chili or after-dinner chocolate than bread. Some aren’t willing to compromise their bread, and that’s A-OK. Look, I get it— I’m not willing to compromise my cheese…so don’t even try messing with it! 

Buttery Almond Flour Bread is not dense, crusty or chewy, but rather light and more “cake-like”. It pairs beautifully with a bowl of turkey chili or, as pictured here, White Bean-Chard Soup

If you’re like me and even looking at a slice of bread is enough to send your blood sugar busting through the roof, you’ll adore this bread all the more because it has only a mere gram (that’s one gram) of net carbohydrates per slice.
