Yummy Paleo Keto Bread

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love my toasts in all forms, especially avocado toasts. I usually just buy gluten free bread because they are easy and convenient, but lately, I’ve been sticking to a lower carb diet because I feel so much better that way. So, in order to keep my toast habit going, I decided to make my own paleo keto bread, and I’ve been loving it!

Yummy Paleo Keto Bread Recipe

This paleo keto bread loaf recipe is so easy and so fluffy. The prep time is so quick, because all you have to do is mix the ingredients together before pouring the batter into the baking pan before throwing it in the oven.

The base is made with low carb almond flour, and I just love how the texture is so much like actual bread! It’ll definitely fulfill your bread cravings without spiking up your blood sugar, whether you eat it alone or top it with your favorite spread and/or toppings.

Using the Correct Psyllium Husk

This paleo keto bread recipe uses psyllium husk powder to help with the bread-y texture. It’s actually quite easy to find these days, especially if you search online. However, not all psyllium husk powders are the same. Some of them, when baked, actually imparts a bluish-purple color to the baked good which can be quite off-putting.

I found that this psyllium husk powder is high quality, works well, and doesn’t change the color of my bread, and I’ve baked with it several times now. However, if you have another brand already on hand and the purple color doesn’t bother you, feel free to use it in this recipe because it won’t affect the flavor at all!

What to Expect With This Paleo Keto Bread

Just like most grain free breads, this bread will not rise like a regular, flour bread. Yes, it will rise some, but don’t expect it to double in size. Feel free to double the recipe and use the same sized pan if you want a true loaf-sized bread. You may need to adjust the baking time accordingly.

Also, this bread will be light and airy, and not hardy and crusty. I love toasting each slice before serving to give it a little more texture, then topping with mashed avocados or cream cheese.

It’s such a great way to enjoy bread on a low carb diet, so I hope you enjoy!

Paleo Irish Soda Bread

This grain free and paleo Irish soda bread is crusty on the outside, while soft and delicious on the outside. It’s delicious slathered with ghee or butter!

Paleo Irish Soda Bread

The first time I tried an Irish soda bread was actually in Ireland 8 years with my then-boyfriend and now-husband. It was our first big trip together ever since we started dating and this was before I went completely gluten free.

I remember tasting the soda bread at a restaurant in Dublin without expecting much, but I was surprised by how much I like it. It was crusty, soft, slightly sweet, and amazing with a slather of butter.

With St. Patty’s Day quickly approaching, it made me think of that trip and decided to make this grain free and paleo Irish soda bread. At first bite, it took me right back to Dublin! With the crusty exterior and the soft inside, it is amazing and I’ve been enjoying it with some ghee or butter each day.

What is Irish Soda Bread?

Soda bread is a classic humble Irish quick bread made with the most basic ingredients: flour, baking soda, buttermilk and salt. The crust is hard and the inside is soft, and there are various version of it.

My paleo Irish soda bread has different components to make the recipe grain free and dairy free, and I added dried fruits for a touch of delicious sweetness. However, the texture and flavor is definitely authentic and if you are avoiding wheat, I think you’ll love this on St. Patrick’s Day or anytime you get a hankering for bread!

Storing This Paleo Irish Soda Bread

This bread is the best tasting fresh out of the oven because it dries out the longer it sits. However, if you do have leftovers, you can wrap it in plastic wrap and place in a resealable bag. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week, and reheat just before serving!

Paleo Chocolate Banana Bread with Walnut Topping

This Paleo Chocolate Banana Bread is delicious and crunchy from the walnut topping, and great for breakfast or any time of the day. It’s a comforting recipe all year round!

paleo chocolate banana bread

If you know me at all, you know I’m not a sweets person. I can’t even remember the last time I got dessert at a restaurant, and I was perfectly fine not having cake for my birthday. I do enjoy a piece of extra dark chocolate daily but that’s pretty much it. However, with the weather getting slightly cooler, my sweet tooth has been acting up recently.

Paleo Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

After I was away for the weekend, I was delighted to come back to super brown and ripe bananas. Hello there, future delicious baked good. I guess I “forgot” to eat you. So in order to not let these bananas go to waste, I whipped up this paleo chocolate banana bread and I’m pretty dang obsessed.

paleo chocolate banana bread These paleo chocolate banana bread slices are sweet without being overpowering and the chocolate chips in them really make the banana flavors shine. They are moist, sturdy, and so amazing drizzled with butter or almond butter.

Crunchy Walnut Topping

When I’m eating anything, sweet or savory, I love biting into something crunchy. Bacon? Please overcook it so it’s almost burnt. Oh, did you over-bake those cookies? I’ll take them, no problem. For this paleo chocolate banana bread recipe, I added chopped walnuts for the topping to add the crunch factor and they are such a great combo with the soft and moist bread layer.

If you are not into the crunchy texture like me, you can leave it and it’ll still be super delicious and wonderful. Hope you enjoy this recipe, because it’s such a great breakfast on a busy day or if you just want to indulge in something slightly sweet and decadent in the afternoon!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper so the edges are hanging over two sides.
  • Mash the bananas in a large bowl. I like to leave them slightly clumpy so I taste small chunks of banana in the bread later.
  • Add eggs, almond butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to the bananas and mix well.
  • Add coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt and mix well.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together chopped walnuts and 1 tbsp coconut oil.
  • Sprinkle the topping mixture evenly over the bread batter.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let the bread cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing it, using the parchment paper edges. 
  • Let it cool for 30 more minutes before slicing.
