We’ve been trying a lot of Paleo bread recipes lately but so many haven’t turned out well. I’ve found the key really comes down to finding the right mixture of flours. I was inspired to make this recipe after reading The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking. There are many grain-free bread recipes that can be easily modified to to be Paleo friendly. I did find many of the recipes called for Stevia (which we avoid), but I found coconut sugar and raw honey work great as alternative, natural sweeteners. Even my kids kept coming back for seconds.
This Grain-Free, Sugar-Free Raisin Bread recipe came out delicious. I toasted it and topped it with butter… and it was scrumptious. Try it with a bit of fig jam to bring out the raisin flavor.
You can make this recipe vegan as well (I’ve noted options below).
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
