Paleo Brekky Bread
Are you a lazy breakfaster? Can't be bothered or don't have to time to make anything but toast? OR just LOVVEEEE toast (like me!).... well I have the answer to a quick, toasty AND nutritious breakfast: PALEO BREAD.
This is a complete meal: full of veggies, a good amount of protein and of course it taste delicious. It has that "bready" texture which is a craving for many, however it is packed with more nutrition than regular bread, lower in carbs, higher in good fats and proteins and will keep you fuller for longer.
I doubled the recipe for 2 loaves, cut them into servings and froze them individually. You can then pop them out and straight in the sandwich toaster (you don't even have to defrost it! Although it'll be quicker to toast if you do) and serve by itself, or top with smashed avo, poached eggs for an extra protein hit or some nut butter.
As usual I've provided some swaps: sweet potato or carrot and different herb/ spice options depending on your tastes. But all I can say is, don't be afraid to experiment with different flavours, spices and vegetables. You could use a different nut meal as the base, add other spices like rosemary for a more italian flavour or even some chilli for a bit of a kick to get your mornings off to a sprightly start! Make this bread your own :) And let me know how it goes - I love getting feedback and comments on my recipes.
Hope you love it as much as I do! xx Zo
- 2 cups almond meal
- 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
- 1/2 cup psyllium husk powder
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 cup your fave seeds (sesame or pepitas or sunflower)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 eggs
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1-2 tsp Your fave spices: I like tumeric and cumin
- 1 large grated carrot or half a sweet potato
- 1 large or 2 small grated zucchini
- Handful of chopped herbs (I used basil but parsley, rosemary or even mint would work well)
- Optional: 1 tsp garlic and/ or onion powder
Mix together all dry ingredients + grated veggies, then add olive oil and whisked eggs.
Pour the mixture into a bread loaf tin lined with baking paper - or use a silicone one rubbed with some coconut oil.
Bake at 180 for about 40 minutes or until a mental skewer comes out clean at the top is nice nad golden brown. Goodluck at resisting NOT eating it straight from the oven!
