Almond Flour and Mixed Seed Bread

Yield: 1

Almond Flour and Seed Bread

Wheat-free Almond Flour Bread with lots of nuts

Looking for a delicious grain-free bread?

I experimented and used almond flour that is high in protein and low in carbs. Trust me, this is truly delicious. It is healthy and will leave you satisfied and you can now also enjoy bread, should you miss a traditional slice of bread with wheat, etc.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Cooling and Resting 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup mixed seeds (black poppy, white and brown sesame, pepita seeds)
  • 60 ml psyllium husks
  • 12.5 ml baking powder
  • 3 ml of salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 250 ml Greek or Bulgarian Yoghurt (I used Vanilla Greek yoghurt, as that is what I had on hand)
  • 2 - 3 tsp of seeds for decoration on the top

Instructions

Mix flour, seed, psyllium, baking powder, and salt with a hand whisk.

Add eggs and mix through until no lumps visible.

Add the yoghurt and blend until all incorporated.

Line the bread tin with parchment paper and then spray with non-stick as well.

Pour the mixture in and sprinkle extra seeds in rows for decoration.

Bake at 180°C/350°F for 45 min or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let cool down,

Pick up the bread by taking hold of the parchment paper and lift it out of the pan and then leave it on the wire cooling rack.

After 2-3 minutes remove the paper and place it on the cooling rack or it will not breathe properly at the bottom and will get soggy.

Slice and enjoy with butter, and any topping.

I had my first slice only with butter, and oh boy, it is delicious. For sure a keeper in my books and I will make it again.

Notes

Prepared, tried and tested by Esme Slabs

Yoghurt is a variant spelling of yogurt that is common in British English. It can be used in all the same contexts as its American counterpart yogurt. While yoghurt is much more common in British English than in American English, it still isn't the dominant spelling.

Almond Flour Is Better for Your Blood Sugar

This can cause high spikes in blood sugar levels, followed by rapid drops, which can leave you tired, hungry, and craving foods high in sugar and calories. Conversely, almond flour is low in carbs yet high in healthy fats and fiber

 

How do you make almond flour bread rise?

Unfortunately, almond flour just doesn’t work the same way as wheat flour. But, you can still do everything you can to help this bread rise. The key is to create air in the batter before baking. Mix it very well, aiming to create air bubbles!
 

Does baking powder work with almond flour?

Almond flour can be a viable alternative to all-purpose flour for those with type 2 diabetes in many baked goods such as cookies, cakes, quick bread, and pancakes. Slightly increase the amount of rising agent (baking powder and/or baking soda) to accommodate the heavier weight of the almond flour.

  1. OMG! I love seed bread and working with almond flour. This bread looks amazing! I’ve never head of psyllium husks, so I’m going to look it up and see if I can find some. This recipe is a must try for me! Thank you.

    • A blogging friend just left a note on a FB page where I shared this said she made it and it turned out very well. I am so happy that someone tried it as well.

      Psyllium husk powder is used to retain moisture and help breads from becoming too crumbly. Guar gum is good for cold foods such as ice cream or pastry fillings, while xanthan gum is better for baked goods including yeast breads. I’ve used psyllium husk powder for both purposes.
