After a disastrous and unedible loaf of coconut bread using a recipe I found online I was leery of trying another bread recipe, but I really wanted some bread! Since I’ve had good luck with the recipes from
I decided to try Elana’s Scrumptious Sandwich Bread. I had all the ingredients but not the right size pan. However I did have a foil pan that I use for making food to give to my Mom, so I took that pan and squished the sides inward slightly to make it into a smaller loaf size. That seemed to work pretty well.
The bread is very dense and has a nutty flavor, not surprising considering it’s made with almond butter and almond flour. Xander and I both liked it but Ryan did not. I think the taste of “real” bread is too recent for me toÂ fairly judge this bread. It’s not my whole wheat oatmeal bread that I have baked every week for the last couple of years. It’s just not that type of bread, and at this point my mouth still craves that. I think the more that taste fades from memory the more I’ll like this bread and others made with nut flours. As it was, I did enjoy eating with bread today, but it was less the actual taste of the bread and more how I was able to use it.
For breakfast I was able to have my eggs over easy with wonderful runny yolks and I had toast to soak up the yummy yolk goodness! I am rather sick of scrambled eggs so it was a nice treat to be able to have fried eggs instead. For lunch I had an actual sandwich! Though strangely I really craved potato chips with my sandwich even though before going Primal I only occasionally ate chips.
