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!

Gluten Free & Paleo Lemon Bars

These Gluten Free and Paleo Lemon Bars are the perfect way to welcome Spring, and they are a light and healthy treat that everyone will love!

Gluten Free Paleo Lemon Bars

When life hands you lemons, make lemon bars. That’s how the saying goes, right? Or something like that? Well, life did hand me lemons this week. After working so hard to improve my health issues for over a year now, I’ve learned about a minor setback through a blood test. It’s been frustrating and upsetting, but at least I found about it early before things got worse.

I’ll talk about it more in detail in a later post. I’m trying to keep a positive attitude about it, because there’s no use wallowing in it. It won’t help me heal faster. So, in an effort to look on the bright side, I made these paleo lemons bars out of all the lemons that landed on my lap this past week.

Paleo Lemon Bars Recipe

I love lemon flavored desserts. They are especially festive and fun during the Spring months. The flavor and the color instantly brighten up your day and your taste buds without weighing down your tummy. These paleo lemon bars are light and super lemon-y, as they should be, and also contain healthy fats with a good dose of vitamin C from the lemon zest and juice. It’s a great treat to make when you are going through a crappy time.

Make it Festive!

And if you are celebrating summer holidays like 4th of July and Memorial Day, you can even top these paleo lemon bars off with festive berries like I did below. I hope these will make your day happier like they did to mine!
