Breads have been one of the hardest things to “figure out” while on our gluten-free journey. And having to leave out the dairy & sugar hasn’t made recipes any easier, that’s for sure. After mastering our Homemade Buckwheat Pancake Bread, I wanted to start creating things that were a little more fun and a lot more like what we’d been used to indulging in at bakeries or coffee shops while sipping a warm cup of joe. What I came up with is the moist and tasty Swirl Loaf in the picture. Using this recipe, you’ll be able to whip up two loaves of bread, packed with protein and eye-pleasing goodness.
Gather up the following & I’ll meet you in the kitchen!
3 c almond meal
1 c buckwheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp salt
1 c oil
1 1/2 c liquid
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees & grease 2 bread loaf pans.
2. Mix 2 1/2 c almond meal, 5 eggs, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 c oil & 3/4 c liquid. Once mixed, pour 1/2 mixture into each bread pan.
3. Mix 1 1/2 c almond meal, 1 c buckwheat flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 c oil & 3/4 c liquid. Pour 1/2 of mixture over on top of first dough layer.
4. Dip a knife into the dough & “swirl” with your knife.
5. Bake at 350 degrees approximately 35-40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the center of loaf.
Experiment with different ingredients that you have on hand & find out what your family enjoys best. I use extra virgin coconut oil most frequently, but can get away with other oils on hand such as olive oil. If you don’t have oil or prefer to cook without it, then substitute with apple sauce.
Make this bread more sweet or more savory. Using coconut milk as your liquid for a sweeter taste, or try broth to make it more savory. I like to make this bread sweet and savory by adding coconut milk to the first portion and my Everything But the Kitchen Sink Broth for the second.
Think of this as two recipes to make it less intimidating. It looks like a HUGE list of ingredients, especially when you’re at steps two and three. Think of this recipe as just whipping up two different loaves of bread and it will be less intimidating.
