I recently stayed with my parents for two weeks in Nashville. I loved having a bigger kitchen and best of all a dishwasher. My dad started on a 30 day Paleo challenge so and I wanted to help him along with some grain free bread like versions of his favorite dishes. I made this grain free chia bread (Paleo, gaps, gluten-free) that was a big hit. Other coconut flour breads I made were just mealy but this one had a unique quality that made it a winner.
My Dad has a major sweet tooth and his determination is sometimes not as strong as I would like. But I have full faith that this is the real thing for him! I was glad I was there for two whole weeks to get him over the carb cravings and detox feelings that many people go through. If he is still sticking with it I hope to post his 30 day before and after photos. He was off to a great start when I left and had already lost a lot of weight. It is amazing what balancing hormones and lowering inflammation can do!!
The chia gave the bread a bounce and bite that coconut flour alone just wont give.
For those sensitive to eggs, I could not figure out how to make it egg free this time, sorry!
Grain Free Chia Bread (Paleo, Gaps, gluten-free)
Prep time 10 minutes
Cooking time 40 minutes
Serves 4-6 (makes 1 loaf)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil or grass fed butter
1-2 tablespoons honey (optional)
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp Chia
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup coconut flour
2 Tbsp almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl.
Grind the chia in a coffee grinder (don’t skip this step).
Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl including ground chia.
Combine the two mixtures and let them sit for 5 minutes.
Pour into a greased small loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes.
(I only had a large loaf pan that I covered in parchment paper to make it smaller. The batter filled it about half way.)
Let the bread cool for 5 minutes.
Slice and serve with butter or almond butter.
